This is possibly the best I have read.
Top book giving in depth history of reggae music, Rastafarianism  , The Island , Slavery  days , Jamaica underclass life , Bobs life from his mum getting walloped by an English Captain to his death. Jamaica folk law and quoted stories and superstitions etc are very entertaining.
A bit of a rosy picture of Bob as a person is it's  only flaw.
Bob Marley was a nasty fucker at times but White sidesteps that stuff.
If you've  ever been to the Caribbean  , especially Jamaica then it's  a glorious  read.

Used to , a lot.
Punk and reggae in England shared a strange affiliation.
Lots of mixed concerts etc.
Even Marley welcomed the teaming up of the two genre. Check out 'punky reggae party '
I can listen to the Wailers all day .
The rasta religion is fucking nonsense though....but no more nonsense than a virgin birth o course .

I read a FAB 4 bio a few months ago that was pretty good. Can't remember who wrote it. Other than the preponderance of their business dealings, it was interesting. The writer loved John, respected Paul and didn't have time for George. Ringo got more mention.

They will likely only order the book, not the 10".
Wots on the record - old material he did with his mother?

No, it's a recently discovered recording of him playing live on a John Peel radio show. The tracks are 'Time of No Reply', 'River Man', 'Three Hours', 'Bryter Layter' and 'Cello Song'.

Fucking England.
Wot the fuck is that Ethiopia where culture is just binned, or forgotten?

How could Drake ON PEEL SHOW only now be found?


Unbelievable.


Like BBC taping over their own productions back in the day just to save money.
