Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Forced to leave Jamaica after an assassination attempt, Marley recorded this 1977 masterpiece in England; inspired by the recent events in his life, songs like Jamming; Waiting in Vain , and the epic title song became some of the all-time classics of reggae. Disc one is a remastered edition of the original LP plus rare mixes, B-sides and alternate takes. Disc two features five unissued performances from the Exodus tour, two versions of Punky Reggae Party and Keep On Moving (recorded in '77 with Lee Perry) and Marley's Exodus radio advertisement. An awesome expansion of what Time magazine called "the album of the century!"
In 1999, Exodus was rightfully voted the most important album of the 20th century by Time magazine. This is the visionary Bob Marley masterpiece, a concept album that distills the myriad experiences of both our daily lives and collective unconsciousness into 46 minutes of aural perfection. The deluxe CD reissue of Exodus has been flawlessly remastered from the original recordings and showcases what is probably the Wailers' tightest recorded performance. The initial notes of the album's opening track, "Natural Mystic," fade up from a deep silence, giving the listener the impression that the music generates from within a continuum of past, present, and future. The first half of Exodus bears witness to Marley's shift in focus away from the mundane problems of Babylon existence and toward a greater understanding of vital universal truths. The second half features songs like "Jamming" and "Waiting in Vain," which take a gently wistful look at the more interpersonal aspect of human relations. This deluxe edition offers a remastered and expanded version of the original album. --Rebecca Levine
