Description
When he died at age 36, Bob Marley was known globally as a champion for human rights. Growing up in the slums of western Kingston, Jamaica, Marley struggled to be accepted as the child of a mixed-race couple. He likewise fought to have his reggae music played on the radio and to spread the word of his Rastafarian faith. The 30 songs on this collection are a tribute to his spectacular achievement of these goals. They include "Natural Mystic," "Lively Up Yourself," "Sun Is Shining," "Don't Rock My Boat," "Duppy Conqueror," "Trenchtown Rock," "Soul Shakedown Party," "Keep on Moving," "Kaya," "Soul Almighty," "Stop That Train," "Fussing & Fighting," and "Mellow Mood."

"He wrote his first political song, called 'Simmer Down,' which was a message to the gangs, saying, 'You know, simmer down. Stop the violence. Stop the killing.' So he started to be a peacemaker fairly early on. And, as we all know, he kept writing these wonderful love songs up until he died, but they were mixed in with songs of rebellion and revolt and survival."—Marley biographer Stephen Davis
