Much can be said about Marley. He was one of the most popular artists in the world, rising up from nowhere in Jamaica to being one of the biggest musicians ever before his untimely death. He was a proponent of Rastafarianism, a very interesting take on the Bible in which Haile Salassie of Ethiopia became an unwitting god and in which [CENSORED] became a sacrament. It could also be seen as an empowering religion for an oppressed people. But all that aside, the "sound" was what really carried Marley, Tosh, and Bunny Wailer to greatness, with Lee "Scratch" Perry instrumental in creating some jungle atmosphere in the studio. Perry, to say the least, used very unconventional methods in creating the sounds and producing the music that he did.

Love "Small Axe." One of the greatest songs ever, at least the version with the organ and sax. "Could You Be Loved", "One Love", "Three Little Birds", "Duppy Conquerer", "Rastaman Vibration", just a couple of favorites.

This one's been in the rotation lately, good stuff.

I have to say, as a veteran of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan...

Bob rules.

Rastaman Vibration was my favorite album. I also enjoy Kaya & Uprising.

This music is international, classic... etc.

Want it all?

Marley is good summer listening.
I grabbed a bootleg a little while ago from dime that is decent, Bob Marley and the Wailers 20 September 1980, I believe they were the opening band for the Commodores, it is a soundboard recording.
I don't know how many songs are missing, but it is decent, Could You Be Loved gets cut at the end, also cuts and shaky sound into Them Belly Full.

Here is a copy of the text file, I archived the flac files.

Always soothing sounds. It sounds trite, but when I went to Jamaica about 5 yeas ago he was the perfect soundtrack for the day to day, along with Jimmy Cliff and Peter Tosh. Of course when I was really baked the GD were on the headphones....

My ticket stub from Cole Feild House 3/7/81 says Grateful Dead with The Wailers. Bob was supposed to open up but he had to cancel because of his illness.
Sad

Bob Marley was a legend, however my personal preference is for Dub and Dance Hall style Reggae. Eek-A-Mouse, Burning Spear, Mikey Dread....

Just personal preference - Bob Marley personified reggae which is cool I guess, but you have to admit somewhere along the line his music lost that "underground" vibe that originally defined it.

I think Marley is excellent. From the very early ska stuff to Catch a Fire to Uprising are excellent. I also love Live!, the '75 release...For me, I keep Catch a Fire, Natty Dread and Burnin' on the Ipod. The thing I hate about his music is that it seems every year there is some sort of new compilation or some shit....Thats on the record company though Very Happy

Huge Marley fan. I think the Wailers lost a little of the "edge" when Tosh. Both Marley and Tosh are in fairly constant rotation on the iPod.

Here's an interesting piece on Tosh (not looking to hijack the thread):
