Bob Marley and the Wailers: Stir It Up

Here is Bob Marley’s official site, his Facebook page and a Reuters story about Marley, the recently released movie directed by Kevin MacDonald.

Among the great Wailers songs are Them Belly Full, Get Up Stand Up, Jamming and Buffalo Soldier.

Toots and the Maytals is another great reggae band. Here is Pressure Drop, one of the hits from The Harder They Come, the landmark film that introduced reggae to the rest of the world. Jimmy Cliff sings the title track. Another song from the movie–it’s one of the great soundtracks ever–is By the Rivers of Babylon. This version was done much later by Cliff.

Peter Tosh, who had been a Wailer, had a hit with Don’t Look Back.
