Every little thing gonna be alright ... - Hank Bordowitz - Google Books
Bob Marley remains the most famous and influential reggae star, 23 years after his death. While he has been the subject of many traditional biographies, he hasn't inspired an anthology like this before. Bordowitz (Bad Moon Rising: The Unauthorized History of Creedence Clearwater Revival) collects essays by music critics published during Marley's life and after, as well as contributions from writers (Alice Walker) and political figures (former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley). The articles cover Marley's early life, rise to stardom, impact on Jamaican and world music, death, wrangling over his estate, children, and Rastafarianism, concluding with articles about musicians with whom he played and who are carrying on the tradition. Generally well written and offering many viewpoints, this collection is a great read for casual readers and longtime fans. One caveat: the proofs were rife with typos, which one hopes will be fixed in the final book. Those looking for a straightforward biography should turn to Timothy White's Catch a Fire. For all collections where reggae or Bob Marley material is in demand. Bill Walker, Stockton-San Joaquin Cty. P.L., CA
