"Movement of Jah people"

The reggae album to top all other reggae albums, it is true to say that Exodus by Bob Marley and The Wailers was the record that truly broke reggae onto the world stage when it came into the light of day during the punk rock surge of 1977.
No one disliked reggae except the most right wing of nutters and punks loved the rebel music. Bob Marley had already leapt into the spotlight in 1975 with the Live album and its accompanying No Woman No Cry epic single. Eric Clapton's I Shot The Sheriff smash in 1974 paved the way, but it was Exodus that captured the mainstream audience and was taken to that audience's heart.
It was atour de force, still hard enough for the real dubsters (just about) but soft enough to make the Mums happy.
Exodus the single was the highlight of the set, but it was run a close second by Jamming, Waiting In Vain and Gultiness.
Remember it now - Movement of Jah People - MOVE!
