Ziggy Marley

Ziggy Marley called in to talk about new releases and celebrations for Bob Marley’s 70th birthday year, especially an amazing new CD/DVD package, “Bob Marley & The Wailers – Easy Skanking in Boston.”  We discussed how the video footage was made up of one single camera shot from a fan’s perspective and how that comes across in a very personal and intimate way, and also how the music just jumps out of the speakers.  This doesn’t sound like a recording that’s almost 40 years old.  This is fresh and alive.   It’s time to take the legacy of Bob Marley away from the posters and t-shirts of frat boys and truly appreciate the artistry of the man.
