Marley on The Road Book

Non esiste luogo sulla terra in cui la sua immagine non campeggi su magliette, graffiti o cartoline. È stato oggetto di film, documentari, libri, interviste, mostre fotografiche. La sua pagina Facebook è la più cliccata di sempre, più di quella dei Beatles, dei Rolling Stones, di Bruce Springsteen.

I testi delle sue canzoni sono stati studiati e tradotti in tutte le lingue del mondo, la sua vita è stata raccontata in centinaia e centinaia di libri. Eppure mancava una pubblicazione che raccontasse la fonte che ha alimentato e alimenta il suo mito, ovvero le sue esibizioni dal vivo.

Perché Bob Marley, prima di essere un rivoluzionario, un profeta e un’icona, è stato uno straordinario musicista.

Ivan Serra e Marco Virgona, due dei più grandi collezionisti ed esperti di cose marleyane, colmano ora la lacuna, consegnando al grande popolo dei fan di Tuff Gong un libro unico. Il materiale dei loro archivi, frutto di quasi quarantanni di passione e di ricerche, si unisce a quello raccolto nella rete dei fan club di tutto il mondo e accompagna la storia di tutti concerti che Marley ha tenuto dal 1962 al 1980: foto inedite, ticket, poster originali, articoli di quotidiani e settimanali dell’epoca, testimonianze dirette sulla vita in tour, setlist e line-up accompagnano il lungo viaggio di Bob e delle sue band attraverso questo mondo, dal primo all’ultimo show, facendoci scoprire, oltre all’artista anche un Marley intimo e quotidiano.

Introduzione di Eugenio Finardi. Prefazione di Bunna (Africa Unite)

The long awaited book: for the first time ever a book on all Bob Marley ‘s concerts from 1962 to 1980. Each concert is illustrated with unseen photographs, rare articles, posters, tickets, informations, anecdotes, set lists, line up, audience. A book written by fans for fans.

“The Bible and Bob Marley” by Dean MacNeil is the first book written on the King of Reggae as biblical interpreter ("one of the few to take Bob Marley's use of the Bible seriously" writes Stephen C.A. Jennings in the foreword), focusing on the parts of the Bible that Marley quotes most often in his lyrics. MacNeil limited the analysis to songs composed during the Island period from 1973 to 1980: in a total of 83 songs, he identified 137 biblical references, mostly from Psalms, Proverbs, Gospels, Pauline Literature, and Major Prophets. There are 5 interesting chapters (Introduction, Review of [...]

THE MARLEY MANUSCRIPT "The Marley Manuscript" is told from the point of view of people close to Bob: the conversations in this book were conducted in the months following the passing of Bob and much of them were written in Jamaican patois. The front cover is an awesome photograph of Bob taken in 1979 during his encounter with Michael Manley: it's a picture never seen before. In the first 30 pages Bob's cousin Sledger recalls his relationship with the King of Reggae, his grandfather, granny uncles, aunties and the time in Nine Mile and Trenchtown. Tata and Tommy, Steeko, Richie, [...]

The tour began at the Coleman Club in Nottingham, England, on 27 April 1973, as the first show in Peckham had been cancelled before, and ended with four shows at Max's Kansas City in New York City, in late July. In October they performed as an opening act for the Atlee Yeager Band and Sly and the Family Stone (who served as the headliners), in a figure skating hall in Las Vegas, New Mexico. The majority of the audience thought The Wailers, an American rock band, would perform, but they were surprised seeing a Jamaican band; Mark Paul, the drummer of the Atlee Yeager Band said that they looked like biblical figures from the Old Testament.Bunny Wailer refused to participate in the second tour leg in the United States and was replaced by Joe Higgs.

Exodus Tour 1977

The tour began at the Pavillon Baltard in Paris, France, on 10 May 1977, and involuntarily ended with four shows at the Rainbow Theatre in London in early June; actually there were six shows planned to be performed in London, but the last two shows had been cancelled due to Marley’s serious toe injury he received in a football friendly game with French journalists just before the tour’s start in Paris. Subsequently the tour’s second leg in the United States had first been postponed and then definitely cancelled. The last show of the tour has been released on VHS and DVD, labeled Live! at the Rainbow. It is reported that all four shows have been recorded and taped on video.

Kaya Tour 1978

The tour was initially set to begin in early May in Miami, Florida, but the first six shows had to be postponed due to lead guitarist Junior Marvin‘s cocaine problems. Therefore, the tour began in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on 18 May 1978, and ended in Miami, Florida, on 5 August 1978. The tour was divided into three legs, two U.S. legs and one European leg between. Before the tour Marley performed at the One Love Peace Concert on 22 April 1978.

Survival Tour 1979

The tour started in Boston in late October 1979, and ended in Libreville, Gabon, on 6 January 1980. During 1979, which was the International Year of the Child, the band made appearances at a few benefit concerts for children, as was the case on 10 August 1979, in Jamaica, prior to the Survival Tour, and on 15 December 1979 in Nassau, Bahamas. The tour took place mainly in the United States, but also included performances in the Caribbean and in Africa.

Uprising Tour 1980

The tour started at the Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland, where Marley performed for the first time, on 30 May 1980, and ended at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 23 September 1980, which was Marley’s last concert. Two days prior to the Pittsburgh show, after playing two shows at the Madison Square Garden, Marley collapsed in Central Parkwhile jogging, and was told to immediately cancel the U.S. leg of the tour, but he instead flew to Pittsburgh to perform one final performance. He was rumoured to go out on stage to say “Hi” to fans with Stevie Wonder during his performance of Master Blaster but this is not true. Marley went to a few treatment clinics in the United States, Boston, New York and Miami (Maybe Mexico). Each place gave him only a month to live. Marley then left for Germany to receive cancer treatment which eventually was not successful but prolonged his life 6 months more than any medical clinic in the United States predicted, as Marley died in May 1981.

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Starting out in 1963 with the group The Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee “Scratch” Perry.

After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, Marley pursued a solo career upon his relocation to England that culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977, which established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records.[5][6] Exodus stayed on the British album charts for fifty-six consecutive weeks. It included four UK hit singles: “Exodus”, “Waiting in Vain”, “Jamming”, and “One Love”. In 1978 he released the album Kaya, which included the hit singles “Is This Love” and “Satisfy My Soul”.

Diagnosed with a type of malignant melanoma in 1977, Marley died on 11 May 1981 in Miami at the age of 36. He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality.He is considered one of the most influential musicians of all time and credited with popularizing reggae music around the world, as well as serving as a symbol of Jamaican culture and identity. Marley has also evolved into a global symbol, which has been endlessly merchandised through a variety of mediums.
