"The energy’s so high it seems as if the whole studio’s about to fly on wings to the sky. Chris Blackwell says, 'Call the Skip, now,' and someone fetches Bob. Standing on the platform behind the mixing desk, arms folded against the wall behind him, Bob shuts his eyes and listens intently to the final mix of ‘Exodus’. Suddenly his eyes snap into super-life; he beams, he shines with joy. It’s almost Jekyll and Hyde, Bob dances, transfigured, flinging himself in the free, athletic, MOTION that thrills onstage. Even here in the dark basement studio, it’s as if a North Lights aura throbs round every move. Everyone in the studio’s exultant, it’s a moment of triumph." – Vivien Goldman (Sounds Magazine, 1977)

Introduction
One of the 20th century's most charismatic and challenging performers, Bob Marley's renown now transcends the role of reggae luminary: he is regarded as a cultural icon who implored his people to know their history "coming from the root of King David, through the line of Solomon," as he sang on "Blackman Redemption"; Bob urged his listeners to check out the "Real Situation" and to rebel against the vampiric "Babylon System". "Bob had a rebel type of approach, but his rebelliousness had a clearly defined purpose to it," acknowledges Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, who played a pivotal role in the Bob Marley biography by introducing Marley and the Wailers to an international audience. "It wasn't just mindless rebelliousness, he was rebelling against the circumstances in which he and so many people found themselves."
