Bob Marley: Songs of Freedom

Finally decided to grab this, its been on my want list for awhile. So I finally broke down and spent the money, which I consider an investment in good music and my soul.

This is a 4 disc set of music throughout Bob's career, every disc in this set are classics and can be listened to from start to finish. This set is definitely a tribute to a man who brought a blend of freedom and music with a perfect rhythm to the world. The music picked out for each accending disc definitely shows off the maturity of Bob as a musician.

Between a summer BBQ to just kicking it for a long weekend, this set can be a major stress reliever and bring up any foul mood. Just don't forget the Appleton Rum and some tropical punch, and let the warm Irie sounds of Jamaica's finest fill your spirit!

I highly recommend this album to anyone remotely interested in real Reggae music, in need of some positive vibes, and for Marley lovers its a must have.

Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley is the muthafukin KING!

I've listened to most of his discography, so I'm sure this is a great purchase.

Do yourselves the favor and buy a record player and listen to the original Vynil records (through a good system). You don't know what you're missing until you do.

Long live Brother Bob.

Being a Jamaican, Bob's music will always hold a special place in our hearts. He was ahead of his time, a true ambassador who's legend will live on forever.

True story, my father used to own what is called a grain store back in the day. Bob Marley used to frequent the store as a child and a young man. He also knew "Georgey" quite well "And then Georgey, would make the fire light, log wood burning through the night" No Woman No Cry....

The track is my crack.......................... lucky 7 - ra7or racing
"When I arrive at di front.... big fight" Rossi


RIP Phatstud......... You will be missed.

Bob Marley soul and music will live for ever

Great collection of music. I bought that set back in 1996. I also have a crap load of his other cd's. Great relaxing music.

Actually saw that movie this past movie, CGI at its worst. The only thing that made the ticket price worth it was the little speech they threw in there. I hope it woke some people up to him and into Reggae music as a whole. But not why I picked up the discs for back in October and then to my review in November, I don't even think I saw the trailer back then.

Always liked Reggae music, but it wasn't till I was older that Bob's music really started meaning something to me beyond just listening.

I'm hurting x 2 is awesome, it's cool they played both versions back to back. I've had this 4 TAPE set forever. I need to get the cd's now.

actually now that I think about it, it might be 6 tapes. I can't remember. But I do have the book and tapes if anyone wants to buy them off me. :)

Thats cool man. What made you come to the US and leave the island?

Been to Jamaica twice, once for my sister's wedding and returned for my honeymoon. Both times we flew into Montego Bay and stayed in Negril. Stayed at Drumville Cove the first trip, and at Couples for the second.

I saw 1 600RR on our honeymoon just flying down the road, its crazy how people drive down there but they seem to know what they are doing or just lucky!!! I sure wouldn't be ridding a motorcycle though! But with all the curves around the coast line it'd be a blast.

Ya man my mother wanted a better life for me and my other sister, brother. The first stop was New York City……scary coming to a new land…….but we made it here. I still go back to visit my other family member back there and my sister Judy come the U.S. to do some concerts and that I love to go to……..I be getting front row seat and backstage pass, get to meet a lot of other singers. This Christmas she sends me a big rum fruit cake…..it was so good…….it give me a buzz……..now I’m going to the gym to work it off…….but there is no place like home Jamaica.

Thats cool Raydog, I hear you on theres no place like Jamaica. If I had a way to start some sort of business down there I'd be outta here! I love the US but I think we are getting our noses into too many problems, and we're getting too busy for our own good. I'm counting the days till I can get back to Jamaica for a vacation! Hopefully sooner than later!


I've been picking up some more Reggae music here and there a few of my favorites are Steel Pulse, The Gladiators, The Wailing Souls, and Israel Vibration other than the standard Ziggy/Damian/Stephen Marley, Peter Tosh, and Jimmy Cliff. Ziggy's latest "Love is my Religion" and "Dragonfly" are 2 great discs.
