Sounds like the call-and-response crowd lifter that almost every reggae singer throws into his shows. I've seen Burning Spear and Wiss of Israel Vibrations use it several times (effectively), as well as any number of less talented people who need help getting the crowd up. I first heard it on a Bob Marley and The Wailers live version of "War/No More Trouble", which I think is on Island's comp "Rebel Music" I'm curious to find out if that was part of that song, or if it's just a traditional dancehall tactic, like "How ya feeeeeelin'?" -- "IRIE!"

Tired, old and busted cliche that as the good Dr. said has been mined out by singers of widely varying talent since Bob's live 'Get Up Stand Up' in the mid-70s (and very likely well-worn by the time Bob got to it). It makes me cringe when I hear one of the Cali or HI BMW-clone bands grave-rob it.
Other than that, I guess it's ok...

thanks for the correction. "Get Up, Stand Up", not "War/"
