Friday Reggae # 12

It's the Bob Marley record no-one plays!

Which is, on the one hand, a great shame, since it is full of 'conscious' Afro-centric reggae music and mighty rhythms, but also, on the other hand, quite a good thing, since it has not been over-exposed in a thousand 'Bob Marley Bars' from Phuket* to Paphos.

I have been loving it all week @ 28 degrees C.

Bob Marley & The Wailers - 'Zimbabwe' (1979)
Bob Marley & The Wailers - 'Babylon System' (1979)
Bob Marley & The Wailers - 'Ambush In The Night' (1979)

*I actually have been in one there. It was at the end of the beach no-one went to. It was not really very Irie, but possibly they meant well.


  1. hell's teeth the very thought of a beach bob bar fills me with the very worst kind of dread. no not that kind oh for god's sake that's the sort of thing i'd expect from that dreadfully coarse dvd boy. anyway... oh to hell with it i've forgotten what i was going to put now. i think i've spent too much time round simons

  2. Brain rotting H1N1 virus attached to joyous northern foot stompers? Be conscious of the risks bredren.

  3. ally girl. My pink and perky friend.

    Ooh you are awful.

    But I like you.

  4. the heat is getting to all of you.....

  5. "Trodding on the wine press..."

    Classic album. I listened to this album, even if no one else outside of Phuket did.

    WV: fiest

  6. Good on ya E. I don't think they got beyond Legend in Phuket, sadly.

  7. Gone all cool and grey now but still cracking tunes, Gromit.
