A review of soundtracks and scores released the week of April 17, 2012.

Marley – Original Soundtrack by Bob Marley & the Wailers

Marley is a new documentary that chronicles the life of the man who brought Reggae to the world, Bob Marley.  This two-disc soundtrack is a companion piece to the film.  It is essentially a greatest hits album that includes a combination of studio and live recordings by Bob Marley and his band The Wailers.  The soundtrack provides a gateway into Bob Marley’s music for the casual fan or those who are curious about his work.  A fanatic won’t find much need in purchasing the album, already owning most of his music.  They should however purchase the previously unreleased version of “Jammin’” found only on this soundtrack.  It was recorded at the One Love Peace Concert in 1978 where Marley famously brought two Jamaican political rivals together to shake hands in an act of peace. »
