Few have combined the music with a message in such a radical way as the Jamaican born superstar. The best of Marley's work conveys elements of his social background and religious and political experience. To fully appreciate his legacy, it is vital to explore his songs, with their attendant themes, stories, nuances and characters. This book is the first comprehensive, biographical examination of the huge output of material unleashed on a succession of superb singles and albums delivered by Bob Marley & The Wailers. It looks at the background, circumstances and significance of each song from the early 1960s right up until Marley's untimely death in May 1981.
