We list some artists that have been compared to Bob or seen as the next Bob Marley at some point. Then we explore why there hasn’t ever been another artist quite like him. No recording artist has been as revered and respected. We also touch on conspiracy theories circulating around his assassination attempt, and death.
Experience the REWIND SUNDAYS ‘Jamaica Love’ Roots & Culture event (recorded live on August 19th) that showcased musical selections from some of Atlanta’s top DJ’s including Highlanda Sound, Natural Vibes and Copper Ash alongside Propa English. It was a musical treat with conscious music flowing through the air.
This mix features reggae’s vocal harmony groups from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
I took it back to the roots on this one. I focused on songs with an impressive vocal arrangement. This is a specific selection of songs with male singers harmonizing together.
I featured The Wailers, mostly from the “Catch A Fire” album. That album has that very dry, grassroots sound. This was before instrumentation such as horn sections and electric guitars were added. Before the female energy of the I-Threes was added.
The mix also featured some of The Heptones‘ Studio One era hits. I dropped in some original Israel Vibration before they split. Other groups featured are The Techniques, The Abyssinians, The Gladiators, The Sensations, The Mighty Diamonds, and The Silvertones. You also hear songs from Lloyd Parks and We the People, The Sharks, The Royals, The Cables, and The Flames.
Listen to those names and you know these brothers were from a different time. These vocal groups created some of the most beautiful music and the most powerful songs. You feel their passion because of the emphasis conveyed within the harmonies. There was something special about those days.
