Bob Marley Memorabilia
Selling your Bob Marley and The Wailers Memorabilia?
Bob Marley’s musical career started shortly after he moved to Trenchtown where he would meet future collaborators Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Beverley Kelso, Junior Braithwaite and Joe Higgs.
In the early 1960’s he recorded with legendary reggae producer Lesley Kong before working with the Ska and Reggae pioneer Coxsone Dodd where he would find himself in the company of legendary Jamaican artists Ernest Ranglin and The Skatelites Jackie Mittoo.
In the latter part of the 1960’s he worked with music producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry & The Upsetters and recorded numerous songs with the Wailers in this period up until 1972 when he would tour with Johnny Nash in the UK and met up with Island Records supremo Chris Blackwell who signed him and his band The Wailers to his label, initially as a replacement for the recently departed Jimmy Cliff.
After two unsuccessful but critically acclaimed albums ‘To Catch a Fire’ and ‘Burnin’ The Wailers would disband after prestigious support slots with Bruce Springsteen and Sly & The Family Stone.
Bob Marley would then continue as Bob Marley and The Wailers churning out further albums such as Natty Dread, Rastaman Vibration, Exodus, Kaya, Survival and Uprising. At the same time he would become an accomplished live performer with many legendary performances notably at the Lyceum Theatre and Rainbow Theatre in London.
Sadly his career was cut short prematurely by his untimely death in 1981 at the age of just 36. His legacy and body of work is extraordinary and his importance in bringing reggae to a worldwide audience is undisputed.
