Exodus: Bob Marley & The Wailers
Recorded in London while Marley recovered from an assassination attempt, Exodus was released on June, 3rd 1977; in 1999, Time magazine called it the “best album of the 20th century.” Rock critic Richard Williams has created a magnificent illustrated tribute to the reggae legend featuring rare photos from the Marley family archives and perceptive essays by today’s finest music writers, including Robert Christgau and Chris Blackwell. Williams had exclusive access to new material, and many of those associated with Marley personally and professionally lend their voices to the book. And, for the first time, all the lyrics are included, with commentary by Linton Kwesi Johnson. Best of all, it comes with a CD of Marley’s masterpiece so you can listen as you read.
