Bob Marley ~ Exodus In 1999 Exodus was rightfully voted by Time Magazine the most important album of the 20th century. This is the visionary Bob Marley's masterpiece, a concept album that distills the myriad experiences of both our daily lives and collective unconsciousness into 46 minutes of aural perfection. The CD release of Exodus has been flawlessly remastered from the original recordings and showcases what is probably the Wailers' tightest recorded performance. The initial notes of the album's opening track, "Natural Mystic," fade up from a deep silence, giving the listener the impression that the music generates from within a continuum of the past, present, and future. The first half of Exodus bears witness to Marley's shift in focus away from the mundane problems of Babylon existence and toward a greater understanding of vital universal truths. The second half features songs like "Jamming" and "Waiting in Vain," which take a gently wistful look at the more interpersonal aspect of human relations. --Re...

1973 album from the Reggae legend. The album established the band as international superstars. Leader Bob Marley in particular became world-famous. The socially aware lyrics and militant tone surprised many listeners, but others were attracted to Marley and Peter Tosh's confrontational subjects and optimistic view of a future free from oppression.
Catch a Fire, released on 13 April 1973, is the fifth album by Jamaican reggae band The Wailers, and the first the band released on Island Records. After touring and recording in the United Kingdom with Johnny Nash, Nash's departure to the United States left the band without enough money to return home; they approached producer Chris Blackwell, who agreed to advance the Wailers money for an album and paid their fares back to Jamaica, where they recorded Catch a Fire. The album features nine songs, two of which were written by Peter Tosh and the rest by Bob Marley. After Marley's return to London to present the tapes to Blackwell, the producer reworked the tracks with contributions by Muscle Shoals session musician Wayne Perkins, who played guitar on two overdubbed tracks. The album's supporting concert tour throughout England and the United States helped establish the band as international stars. Catch a Fire peaked at number 171 and number 51 on Billboard's 200 and Black Albums charts, respectively. The albu...
Catch a Fire Catch a Fire stands alongside some of rock's great debut LPs. Of course, the Wailers had been making great low-budget records for years in Jamaica--first as a vocal trio and then as a band--but this first effort for Chris Blackwell's Island label in 1973 is the one that broke reggae music into an international market (and finally gave them some dough as well). Bob Marley's "Stir It Up" had been a major pop hit in America and Europe the year before via a cover version by Johnny Nash, priming the market for reggae, but nothing prepared the world for Marley songs like "Concrete Jungle" and "Slave Driver," which fully revealed Marley's seemingly mystical political militancy. Marley's magic was already there, for sure, but Peter Tosh's "Stop That Train" and "400 Years" both display why Tosh and Marley together made a peerless reggae music team. --Bill Holdship
