My music will go on forever. Maybe it's a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever.
This one is my favourite at this moment in time because its the one I'm listening to right now.
What's your favourite Bob Marley album? And why does it stand out for you above the rest? If you don't have a top 1, perhaps you can name your top 3
or top 5... or top 10..
(It's okay if you dont have a favourite, you can just post whatever one you would most enjoy listening to right now)

All his albums were very strong. I really like the old Wailers material and his last album "Uprising" is very special to me.
The first thing that caught me was the song "Coming In From the Cold". Suddenly I heard his voice crying out "It is you I'm talking to" and "The
biggest many you ever did see was just a baby".
Bob got me checking my own attitudes and becoming more conscious of how my behaviour affected others, "For every little action, there's a reaction".
It made me become receptive not just to the Black People, but every kind of people.
Then I had to go through the reality of the fact that for all my openness, friendliness and reaching out of my arms others do not feel that way and I
was taken advantage of for my gentleness. That in turn has led to a place of sanctuary away from people who cannot help but abuse anything gentle.
Can't pick one... so I'd say my favs are (Oh and Legend is NOT an album, it's a Greatest Hits/Best Of compilation and does not qualify, but then I've
included Talkin Blues... so....er... Bite me)
Catch a Fire
Just a great album... Killer opener in Concrete Jungle and also has Stop That Train, Stir it Up, Kinky Reggae and one of my fav and little known
Marley tracks....High Tide or Low Tide
Just an album of all KILLER and NO filler.
Another amazing opener in Natural Mystic that just builds slowly and also another fav of mine in So Much things to Say (just a great song) and it also
has the well know hits Exodus, Jammin, Waiting in Vain, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Three Little Birds and One Love/People Get Ready.
I mean seriously..... what an album.
Was the first Bob album I ever bought.. and I'll always love it.
Is This Love, Sun is Shining, Satisfy My soul, Crisis.... not as many hits but some seriously great songs.
And last but not least
It's a "live" album with live studio recordings/radio performances from a couple of different sessions in the mid 70's and some of the versions are
slightly different than the album version... plus you have Bob talking between every track and it's great to hear his thoughts and views.
Get up Stand Up is a fav from this album, such a rockin version...Kinky Reggae too, some great riffs in that, Slave Driver is another that sounds
fantastic...Also I Shot the Sheriff as Bob sounds great on that.
Also Rastaman Chant... just awesome.
And the very sweet Am a do
If you don't have this album,it's definitely worth getting.
