No other singer-songwriter has had such a dramatic impact on society spiritually, emotionally, and politically.
31 years since his passing, the King of Reggae who put Jamaican music on the world stage has pulled it off again with Marley – the Original Soundtrack.
Released as an accompanying soundtrack to the documentary of his life of the same title, this album is a choice selection of the best Bob Marley tracks the world has ever known.
The list of songs includes hits like “I Shot the Sheriff”, “Get Up Stand Up”, “Could You Be Loved”, and “No Woman, No Cry”, a hit that became known as early as 1974 and was No. 37 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
So from one nifty track to another, this prized collection of calypso, soul, and ska draws you deep into Marley’s intriguing world of Jamaican politics, folklore, and religious hues, and leaves you pining for more.
This album is quite simply the most definitive collection of the man’s greatest tracks that no Marley fan should do without.
I give Marley – The Original Soundtrack four out of five.
