Fifty years ago this month, Bob Marley and the Wailers handed the master tapes of the album ‘Catch a Fire‘ over to record producer Chris Blackwell.
It marked the beginning of Bob and his band’s collaboration with Island Records: a collaboration which went on to produce reggae music’s greatest hits – including ‘One Love‘, ‘Is This Love?’, ‘Three Little Birds‘ and ‘Could You Be Loved‘.
Catch a Fire included the Marley-written single ‘Stir it Up‘. The Johnny Nash cover of the song topped the charts the following year … heralding Bob Marley’s career not only as a solid gold performer, but also as a million-selling hit songwriter.
Hit stage show ‘Legend – the Music of Bob Marley‘ brings all of the singer/songwriter’s hits to life, live on stage, including Bob’s aforementioned four biggest hits plus ‘No Woman, No Cry’; ‘Waiting in Vain’; ‘Jamming’; ‘Buffalo Soldier’; ‘I Shot the Sheriff’; ‘Exodus’; ‘Get Up, Stand Up‘ and ‘Satisfy My Soul’.
Show promoter James Taylor of Entertainers promises “an unforgettable evening celebrating this musical icon in one fantastic stage show extravaganza”.
He says: “Legend combines Bob Marley’s superb, distinctive vocals with flawless musicianship and a supremely talented cast.”
“It is a two-hour spectacular, showcasing the magic of Marley. It captures the charisma and culture of an icon gone too soon.”
This year’s nationwide tour by the production has gained much critical acclaim, including Paul Goff of BBC Radio Tees noting: “The highlight for me was Three Little Birds: everyone in the building was singing, en masse, ‘everything is gonna be alright’.”
