The Book of "Exodus": The Making and Meaning of "Bob Marley and the Wailers'" Album of the Century by Vivien Goldman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Recorded in London after an assassination attempt sent him into exile from Jamaica, and named by "Time" magazine as the album of the century, "Exodus" is Bob Marley's masterpiece of spiritual exploration. Much more than just a making-of-the-record story, "The Book of Exodus" takes in the history of Jamaican music, Marley's personal journey from Trench Town ghetto to global superstardom, his political involvement, Rastafarianism, and the biblical roots of the "Exodus" story, culminating in his triumphant return to the stage in Jamaica at the Peace Concert of 1978. As PR for Island Records, Vivien Goldman was instrumental in introducing white audiences to the Rasta sound of Bob Marley. Here, she provides a unique first-hand account of the album "Exodus", from its conception in Jamaica to the intense, sometimes raucous all-night studio sessions in London. "The Book of Exodus" is an unforgettable portrait of Marley from a member of his intimate circle and an acutely perceptive appreciation of his musical and spiritual legacy.
