This is arguably the best album from Bob Marley - it contains many of his most famous tracks such as the groove-packed 'Jamming', the romantic classic 'Waiting in Vain', the humble and optimistic 'Three Little Birds', the philanthropic masterpiece 'One Love - People Get Ready', and of course the unmistakeable opening track that sets the the bar high and the tone of tracks to follow, 'Natural Mystic'.

The remastering is fantastic - the bass is ripe and pure, while the detail of the drumwork and horns is a treat for the ears. For those of you who are like me, CD1 has some real collectors' tracks: two extra versions of 'Jammin' - an instrumental and an extended, as well as an instrumental of 'Exodus', and an alternative version of 'Waiting in Vain', which is very interesting.

The great news is that CD2 is more than just a thrown-in add-on, there's 5 live tracks, taken from his gig at The Rainbow, London, in June 1977. The tempo seems to fluctuate slightlyat times, especially on 'Jammin'. But the real good stuff are the 4 tracks from the 1977 Lee Perry sessions - I'm so pleased to have them: 'Keep on Moving' and 'Punky Reggae Party' with dub versions of the two as well. They'll raise a few eyebrows at any muso parties for sure.

Finally, there's a brief audio commercial for the CD, featuring Bob cackling "Hi, This is Bob Marley..." doing a nice little cameo over Exodus, seguing into "Waiting in Vain".

This CD is THE DEFINITVE version of the album - now that summer is here, make it something special and get this album. Give it a spin at a barbecue in the garden and you can't go wrong.

IF you want an album to start your Reggae or Bob Marley collection going, you couldn't find a better starting place than here.

Have a great summer, everyone.

To have any kind of a great record collection, you MUST have either or both Exodus and Burnin' both by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
Exodus is the pinnacle of what Bob was trying to do in bringing Reggae to the masses and keep the political edge to his music and this is put in no finer detail than the title song from this magnificent album.
As well as that you have, One love, waiting in vain,Jamming, natural mystic and what I feel is one of the greatest love songs of all time, turn your lights down low.
This album is a must for anyone serious about there music, but don't take my word for it, PLEASE go and buy it for yourself, you'll thank me one day.

This is where it all came together.
After the lucid delights of Catch A Fire, the feisty Burnin` and Natty Dread, the intensity of the live album, and the more languid Rastaman Vibration, Exodus is a bona fide masterpiece. And it`s all here, with two superb extra tracks, in glorious
sharp-as-a-diamond remastered sound.
Some of Marley & the Wailers` most winning songs are here, and not just the `hits` either, but other great tracks like Natural Mystic, So Much Things To Say, and Turn Your Lights Down Low. Sometimes it`s the lesser known songs that tell you more about an artist. Listen to the incredible second side of Kaya for example...
I guarantee if you put this album on at any kind of party, most of the people will put down their drinks and get dancing. They`d just have to move about to this jubilant music.
I admit I took Bob Marley a little for granted when he was alive and making records like this, but I can now see he was one of his era`s greatest artists, on a par with Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield or Stevie Wonder as a creative singer, and catalyst for the talents with which he surrounded himself. And boy, did he have soul.
Exodus is an essential album of the eclectic 70s, which should adorn any collection
of music from that time.
Mind you, the magically wondrous Kaya was to come next, containing my all-time favourite Wailers track, Misty Morning. But that was some months away, and we had Exodus. More than enough to go on with.
These days, Bob`s voice sounds as natural as breathing.
What a loss.

Everything that needs to be said or written about this 20th century musical masterpiece has already been said and written, so here's a personal perspective that I sometimes share with myself when listening to Exodus. I'm not a huge reggae fan, in fact this is the only reggae album in my collection, which has be growing steadily for the last 36 years.
There's a sort of paradox with Exodus, on the one hand the music is so tight that you couldn't get a proverbial cigarette paper between the bass, percussion, guitars, keyboards, and vocals. On the other hand here's a group of musicians who are so talented and confident about their music that the notes seems to drip off them with very little effort. You get the impression that they had a great deal of fun making this album, no pressure no deadlines. Island records had a reputation for giving their artists time and space to develop their craft in those days.
For the purists out there this 30th anniversary edition has no extras, just 37 minutes of original perfection. No need to clutter it with stuff that wasn't deemed worthy of inclusion 30 years ago.
Sometimes when groups of like minded talented people get together, their mood, skill and enthusiasm produce great things, a moment in time never to be repeated in their life time. England won the world cup in 1966. Nirvana recorded Nevermind in 1991. Exodus was one of those moments. If you've not heard it give it a try I'm sure it will be in your collection for many years to come and who knows, your might one day replace it with the 50th anniversary edition!!
