It's no secret that Bob Marley means everything to Jamaican pop music. Charismatic to a fault, courageous, defiant, and compassionate as well as being a world-class songwriter and performer, Marley recast Jamaica as Marleyville in the eyes and ears of the rest of the world. This three-disc, 50-track collection features covers of Marley tunes (plus covers of fellow Wailer Peter Tosh's "Maga Dog" and Bunny Wailer's "Dreamland") along with tribute sides recorded by Jamaican artists following Marley's death in 1981. The end result is a remarkably varied yet internally coherent set that not only pays tribute to Marley but also demonstrates the flexible durability of his songbook. Highlights include Max Romeo's skittering version of "Mr. Chatterbox," Tommy McCook's "The Meducia" (which is actually a sax-led instrumental working off the rhythm to Marley's "Some Women Must Cry"), the Groovers' fine take on "Bend Down Low," Delroy Wilson's delightfully joyous "Nice Time," Jackie Mittoo's "Put It On," and Augustus Pablo's suitably ominous and eerie "Three O'Clock Roadblock." Also worth noting is Toots Hibbert's moving two-part "(Marley's Gone) His Songs Live On," which was recorded live at Reggae Sunsplash. ~ Steve Leggett
