When Stevie Wonder released "Master Blaster (Jammin`)" in 1980, he was paying tribute to Bob Marley in general and to this song in particular. Wonder`s song neither samples nor directly quotes this one, but rather captures and celebrates its joyful mood and feel.

This song is often said to be a cover of or tribute to Curtis Mayfield`s song, "People Get Ready." While certainly a tribute in spirit, the songs are also linked lyrically by Marley`s reference to Mayfield`s "hopeless sinner."

Honored by:
 
This song is now well known in both Al Green`s original classic soul version and Talking Heads` savvy, soul-pop fusion cover. Despite obvious differences in rhythm, orchestration, and vocal style, the groove just won`t quit. The Heads` version became a top 40 single in winter 1979, thankfully bringing both the original song and the covering group to the attention of much wider audiences than before.
