Bob Marley & The Wailers



As the Crown Jewels of Island Records, Bob Marley’s back catalogue has been given the bells-and-whistles Deluxe edition treatment on numerous occasions. Exodus has been reissued several times before, but Island have pulled out all the stops as Marley’s most-loved long-player reaches the Big 4-0. Released alongside various CD incarnations, the vinyl boxset comprises the original album, a ‘restatement’ of the LP by Ziggy Marley using newly uncovered vocal takes from Bob, plus some new backing tracks and a live disc recorded at London’s Rainbow Theatre between 1-4 June 1977. A 12” of Punky Reggae Party and Keep On Moving, plus two further 7” singles, complete the package. Due to the reverence with which Marley’s output has been treated (and the consideration, of course, of its huge earning potential), the remastering programme for the ‘Tuff Gong’ is up there with Apple’s reworking of The Beatles.
