Listened: Wednesday June 30

There are tons of famous songs on Exodus – Jamming, Waiting In Vain, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Three Little Birds, One Love – it represents a big chunk of the Greatest Hits of Bob Marley.

The part I like the best though, is the bonus live show from London, 1977. It’s great to hear the love from the audience during the height of Marley mania and the response of the musicians to that love. The song that this is most obvious on is War, the powerful lyrics being directly taken from the text of a Haile Selassie speech.

I really wish they would release more deluxe editions – the last one was released 6 years ago, with no new deluxes since.
