ABOUT EXODUS THE ALBUM
In early 1977, Marley flew to London after escalating political violence in Jamaica led to an assassination attempt on his life. During his sojourn there, Marley and the Wailers recorded the heartfelt musical masterpiece, Exodus. From the soulful skanking in “Jamming” to the funky gravitas of “Exodus” to the sweet melody of “One Love / People Get Ready,” the songs went on to become a seminal album to renowned musicians and fans everywhere. In 1999, Time magazine declared Bob Marley’s Exodus the best album of the 20th century, and BBC designated “One Love” as the song of the century.
Creator & Executive Producer Keith Wortman | Musical Director: Don Was
