DJ Ridym - Bob Marley

Born 6th February 1945, Robert Nesta Marley aka Tough Gong was the most influential reggae icon to come out of Jamaica. From his early Ska recordings with the Wailers to his later material which was more culturally roots influenced reggae icon Bob sends out a message that spiritually resonates deep in the hearts of the listener. 

This mix covers Bob's transition into Rastafarianism and change in musical styles sticking to some of the original versions such as the Upsetters Lee 'scratch' Perry produced Natural Mystic.

When the Wailers split from Bob they hooked up with producer Coxsonne Dodd and formed the Wailing Wailers with Junior Braithwaite on lead vocals. When you listen to It hurts to be alone its easy to see why Coxsonne believed in him so much and why I had to include it on the mix as the only track that doesn't feature Bob.

As always I hope you enjoy this tribute to the great man himself. Have yourself an irie week and I'll catch you soon with another mix real soon.

One love 🔯
