New Bob Marley Album Released on His 65th Birthday

In 2010, the year he would have celebrated his 65th birthday (February 6th), Bob Marley continues to inspire and influence people around the world. One of the most charismatic and challenging performers of our time–a musical, political and even spiritual figure of mystical proportions, both poet and prophet, hero and rebel–Marley remains reggae’s greatest icon and a monumental musical figure of our time. Throughout 2010, Island/Tuff Gong/UMe, his worldwide catalog home, will honor with new album releases a legacy which continues to resonate as Marley’s music is revealed and rediscovered by new generations.

BUY THE ALBUM on iTunes

No artist has so dominated his genre in modern music as Marley has reggae, with his greatest hits album Legend the biggest selling reggae album in history. Militant yet reflective, angry yet romantic, Marley sang of rebellion and uprisings, Rasta and the power of love. A man who rose from the humblest of origins to become a champion for the oppressed, he was the most renowned Jamaican artist to give voice to the struggles of his people and to the Rastafarian culture, and the first to gain global fame.

Marley cut his first single in 1962 and the next year teamed with Peter Tosh, Bunny Livingston. Soon they would be known as the Wailers. In the late ‘60s, with Marley now devoted to Rastafari, they recorded the gems “Sugar Sugar,” “Soul Shakedown Party,” “Duppy Conqueror,” “Soul Almighty,” “My Cup,” “Trenchtown Rock” and “Small Axe.” In the ‘70s, Bob founded the Tuff Gong label and signed to Chris Blackwell’s Island Records. The albums that followed, from Catch A Fire, Burnin’ and Natty Dread (his first without the Wailers) to Rastaman Vibration, Exodus (which Time magazine anointed Album of the Century), Kaya, Survival and Uprising, earned global acclaim. “Stir It Up,” “Concrete Jungle,” “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” “No Woman, No Cry,” “War,” “Positive Vibration,” “Jamming,” “Waiting In Vain” and “One Love/People Get Ready” became anthems.

Though he passed away at the young age of 36, “no one in rock and roll has left a musical legacy that matters more or one that matters in such fundamental ways,” wrote music writer Robert Palmer upon Marley’s posthumous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Attesting to the power and relevance of that music, Bob Marley lives on.

On February 2, 2010, in commemoration of Marley’s 65th birthday, Tuff Gong/Island/UMe will issue a new digital-only collection, In Dub Vol. 1.

    I agree completely. I’m not black but I feel the message in Bob’s music. He was a man of understanding, compassion, equality and truth. I wish he were alive today to guide us through the evil in the world. I’ve been using ganja for 10 years and I’m just starting to understand why it helps me and how it brings me peace, with Marley’s records to show me the way.

    I feel like he was the true advocate, spiritually and politically, for what cannabis can do for our world. I think that here in the pacific northwest we have our own brand of Rastafari, in the way our lives incorporate cannabis.

    ‘so jah seh
    not one of my seeds
    will sit in the sidewalk
    and beg no bread’

    I hope he and his family know how much he still inspires people today to be better, more compassionate and more loving in our world.

    We love you Bob,

    being jamaican by birth and growing up listening to bob marley and the wailers, i have come to appreciate his greatness and genius… to us and the world at large bob is larger than life and the fact that he embraced rastafari elevated his legend even more. personally in him and his music i see and feel a force that inspires faith, hope and love… his hard work and activism for the downtrodden and disenfranchised has qualified him as a national hero in jamaica and as an inductee in many halls of fame around the world… ‘ never let the children cry or else you will have to tell jah why…’ bob marley. the counter culture / cannabis culture can never get enough of bob marley; one love, we’ll be forever loving jah…
