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.
