Bob Marley Exodus Expanded

Get ready for a LOT of Exodus from Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Exodus was released on June 3, 1977, and, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary, the Marley Family is releasing two-CD, three-CD, four-LP and a Super Deluxe package expanding the album.

The two-CD set will include the original album on disc 1 and a new interpretation of the album put together by Ziggy Marley that utilises “unused and never-before-heard vocals, lyric phrasing and instrumentation, incorporating and transforming these various elements into brand-new session takes.”

The three-CD set adds a disc with eight songs from the album recorded live at the Rainbow Theatre in London on June 1, 3 and 4, 1977.

The four-LP version contains the same music as the 3-CD set and adds the Punky Reggae Party LP with a previously unreleased extended mix of Keep On Moving, and a pair of vinyl 7″ singles, including Waiting in Vain b/w Roots and Smile Jamaica (Part One) b/w Smile Jamaica (Part Two).

According to the press release, fans need not be worried about Ziggy’s reinterpretation of the album. He approached it with “the utmost respect for his father’s music and the message.”

Ziggy uncovered 10 lead vocal outtakes for One Love, proceeding to piece together a dazzling, new lead vocal from the outtakes, which includes vocal booth lyric ad libs near the end of the song. He also assembled a noteworthy roster of musicians to record a new music bed for Turn Your Lights Down Low – which leads the song into deeper elements of R&B. Bob’s original vocals sit atop this fresh music bed, creating a new soulful experience with this iconic song. Ziggy and his hand-chosen musicians provide subtle instrumental textures throughout this knowledgeable reimagining from the multiple Grammy-winning heir to his father’s legacy.
