Yearlong commemoration of reggae legend’s music will feature reissues, new collections and plenty of unreleased material from the Marley family vaults
Bob Marley would have turned 70 in 2015, so the reggae singer’s family is marking the milestone with a yearlong commemoration of his music and legacy. For the first time, the Marleys are granting Universal Music Group access to its extensive and private vaults of previously unreleased music to make for stocked reissues, video releases and new live albums.
First up on the calendar is Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Easy Skanking in Boston ’78, a never-before-released live CD/DVD. Footage from this gig was filmed on a handheld camera by a fan that Marley gave permission to stand front-and-center. The release is due out on February 10th.
