This Gem of A Time & A Place & Space in 1970's Jamaica with Bob Marley, 10 August 2013
Author: Debbie Allen from Hollywood with a Beach

Seeing this film with lost footage is like a window or a portal into a time & place & space in 1970's Jamaica the coming of fame or birth of the king of reggae. Bob Marley before the fame! Even the camera Esther Anderson used was a prototype Sony video camera.

I like learning motivation for songs and some gems are revealed here! I don't want to spoil the reveal! Enjoy riding in Esther's Land Rover with Bob Marley driving up and thru the Jamaican rolling countryside. Ever wonder what it would be like if you could have a spliff with the King of Reggae? Check it out here in the film as Esther does.

The soundtrack is phenomenal and fresh and upbeat and yet reggae classic in vibes. I definitely recommend it!
