This beginner's guide to the wonderful world of reggae is cleverly pegged to the music's most renowned icon, Bob Marley. Still, it's a sumptuous set that offers an entertaining overview of the scene, although thoroughly skewed toward the British market. Kicking off with seven excellent tracks from the Wailers themselves, drawn, no surprise here, from the early reggae years, Bob Marley and the Story of Reggae then dramatically shifts gears and returns listeners to reggae's roots. This Story is true enough from the British perspective, even if the gaps and omissions are sizable, and for novices, it's a tale well worth hearing.
Soul Shake Down Party Lyrics. Bob Marley & The Wailers Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.
Most of Bob Marley's early music was recorded with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, who together with Marley were the most prominent members of The Wailers. In 1972, The Wailers had their first hit outside Jamaica when Johnny Nash covered their song "Stir It Up", which became a . hit. The 1973 album Catch a Fire was released worldwide, and sold well. It was followed by Burnin', which included the song "I Shot the Sheriff", of which a cover version by Eric Clapton became a hit in 1974.
Uprising was the last album by Bob Marley to be released in his lifetime. The day it reached the shops on 1 June 1980, Marley and the Wailers opened for Fleetwood Mac at the 69,000-capacity Reitstadion in Munich. It was the second night of the Uprising tour, a European trek which took them to some of the biggest venues on the continent and to several countries they hadn’t played before, including Switzerland, Ireland, Scotland and Italy

Bob Marley was already dying when he stood onstage in Pittsburgh that night, in September 1980. Catch a Fire, 1973’s Burnin’ (the last album to feature original Wailers Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston), Natty Dread (1974), Live! (1975) and Rastaman Vibration (1976) are as essential as any body of work that popular music has ever produced. Like the milestone albums of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Marvin Gaye and Sly Stone, these were records that created new sonic ground and changed how we would hear music
