Al Anderson (born Albert Anderson, 1950, New Yorkmarker) is an Americanmarker-born songwriter and guitarist.

Anderson attended Montclair High School where he learned to play the trombone before getting expelled. He later attended the Berklee College of Musicmarker, and took up bass guitar. He joined The Centurions, which brought him to the attention of Chris Wood of Traffic, who invited him to play on the band's next album. The Traffic album involvement never materialized, but led to Anderson becoming employed by Traffic's record label Island Records, leading to him being asked to play lead guitar on The Wailers' Natty Dread sessions. Anderson played lead guitar on "Crazy Baldhead" and on the Live! album, remaining with the band until 1976, when he joined Word, Sound and Power, backing Peter Tosh on the albums Legalise It and Equal Rights. He returned to Marley's band and played on the Survival and Uprising albums. After Marley's death, Anderson remained with The Wailers Band, and worked as a session musician in the 1990s.

Al Anderson toured with Bob Marley and the Wailers extensively, including:
  • Jun–Jul 1975: Natty Dread Tour (USA, Canada, England)
  • May–Aug 1978: Kaya Tour (USA, Canada, England, France, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium)
  • Apr–May 1979: Babylon by Bus Tour (Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii)
