"Confrontation" is a roots reggae album by Bob Marley & the Wailers, released posthumously in May 1983, two years after Marley's death. The songs on this album were compiled from unreleased material and singles recorded during Marley's lifetime. The most famous track on the album is "Buffalo Soldier." Inside the album sleeve is an artist's depiction of the Battle of Adowa where Ethiopian forces defeated Italy in 1896. The cover of Confrontation is a reference to the story of St. George and the Dragon. The dragon on the cover represents Babylon, which is being slayed by Bob Marley via his music.
