Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 169/500!
Marley was recuperating from an assassination attempt during much of the recording of the Exodus album which was originally released in 1977. The success of this album boosted Marley to international stardom. The album includes such tunes as "Jamming", "Waiting In Vain" and "One Love / People Get Ready".
"As the title suggests, this album wasn't recorded in Jamaica; after Marley took a bullet in a 1976 assassination attempt, he relocated the Wailers to London. But tracks such as "Jammin'" are still suffused with the deep essence of reggae and life at home. "Three Little Birds," for example, had been written on the back step of Marley's home in Kingston, where he would sit and smoke herb. Each time Marley rolled a spliff, he would discard the seeds — the birds of the song's title would pick them up. "The music have a purpose," Marley said, and his spiritual intent was never clearer than on the anthem "One Love." - www.rollingstone.com
