Nobody would argue that Bob Marley is the greatest and best known figure in the history of reggae music, some might say popular music period. And few could argue that his eldest son, Ziggy, has done more than many to keep the name and the music alive.
With his own broad knowledge of the music and its exponents, Ziggy Marley has compiled a record that is the must have summer album and includes some of the biggest reggae names and songs of all time.
'Ziggy Marley in Jamaica' is guaranteed to have you skanking in your back yard with a cold beer while the chicken chars on the BBQ.
"I love reggae music. I grew up hearing and hanging around some of the greats. My father, Peter, Bunny, Toots, Gregory, Dennis and many more. This album represents songs that make me laugh, sing and think. It is music that is relevant to the human spirit today and will be relevant tomorrow. What I love is the diversity of the themes and artists. Love songs like "Money In My Pocket" by Dennis Brown, spiritual songs like Satta Masagana by The Abyssinians and party songs like "You Can Get It" by Jimmy Cliff. These songs make my vibes high. There's nothing else like it."
