Island Records celebrates the 30th Anniversary of one of THE albums of all time. The masterpiece that was Bob Marley’s Exodus was originally released on Friday 3rd June 1977. Described by Uncut as, “exemplary, crisp, and still astonishingly modern”, Bob Marley and the Wailers’ self-produced Exodus was recorded in Jamaica and London whilst Marley was recovering from an assassination attempt.
Exodus transformed Marley’s career. A recording of extraordinary creative maturity, the album resonated with audiences around the world. In the UK it stayed on the chart for 56 consecutive weeks, cracking the Top 10 this side of the Atlantic, as well as the Top 20 in the U.S. The album features huge hits such as ‘Jamming’ and ‘One Love’ and remains a favourite among fans.
