NPR Presents Interview With Cedella Marley

In a very interesting article titled "A Reggae Romp For The Family, With Marley's Music At Heart" NPR presents an interview with Cedella Marley about her upcoming musical called Three Little Birds;
Jamaican superstar Bob Marley once sang about "Reggae on Broadway" — and now, more than four decades after the release of that song, some of Marley's greatest hits have been incorporated into an off-Broadway musical for children called Three Little Birds. The musical, based on a children's book by Marley's daughter Cedella Marley, opens today at Manhattan's New Victory Theater.
NPR's Audie Cornish spoke with Cedella Marley, who is also CEO of her father's record label, Tuff Gong International, about the show, plus what the song means to her and what it was like growing up in the home of a counterculture icon.

One of the very surprising moments in the interview was when Audie Cornish asked Cedella Marley what was her favorite remake of one of her dads songs.  She said that Annie Lennox' version of "Waiting In Vain" "tugs at my heart".

Reggae Album in the Spotlight

When you listen to as much music as I do (for posting to my three music blogs) it becomes difficult sometimes to totally quantify what you mean when you say that you "Love" a album or a musician.

But the word "Love" is not an over statement in this case. When I think about how long I have owned this music, and how much time I still spend listening to it, it justifies my use of the word "Love" when talking about it.



Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com essential recording

Even as greatest hits packages go, this is an utter gem. Every song is inspired, in a class of its own, whether the real version of "I Shot the Sheriff," the hymnlike "No Woman, No Cry," or the sheer joy of "Jamming." Even allowing that Marley never wrote any bad material, then Legend is still the crème de la crème, the heart and soul of the Jamaican people packed into one five-inch compact disc. He was unique, and the message of this record, more than any other, is that he died far too soon. --Chris Nickson
