A rebel, a visionary, an uncompromising champion of human
rights-Robert Nesta Marley rose from the slums of Kingston, Jamaica,
to make reggae music and his own message of rebellion,
self-determination, and the power of the individual a spiritual and
political force through-out the world. The author of the highly
acclaimed "Reggae Bloodlines" has created an intimate portrait of the
charismatic artist through interviews with those closest to Marley and
with Marley himself, including the last one before his tragic death in
the spring of 1981. The Wailers' recording sessions, concerts, and
life at 56 Hope Road, Marley's residence, are all part of a sensitive,
authoritative, and authentic look at the king of a musical movement
that swept out of Jamaica and into Western and Third World countries
alike. Derek Bishton "Blackheart Man"
