While he isn’t a member of the 27 Club, Bob Marley left this world all too soon at the age of 31.
Through the years Marley’s children have continued his legacy of music. On June 3 Island Records and UMe will celebrate 40 years of Marley’s album “Exodus”. In celebration an anniversary, a reissue in a variety of formats is being released with a few surprises.
Marley’s son Ziggy is leading the project he is calling a “restatement”. The new release is titled “Exodus 40 – the Movement Continues”. Ziggy’s “restatement” features elements of the original album that were recorded but never released including vocals and instrumentations.
All together four different “Exodus” sets are being released…
-A two CD package that will include the original album and the updated Ziggy Marley “restatement” edition.
-A three CD digital package that contains the original album, the restatement album, and a live version of the album recorded at the Rainbow Theatre in London in 1977.
-A gold vinyl album of the original “Exodus” will also be coming.
-And there is a super deluxe edition that will include the original album, the restatement album, the live album, and “Punky Reggae Party” all on vinyl; along with two seven inch singles – “Waiting in Vain” and “Smile Jamaica”.
Fans who pre-order the super deluxe package will also receive a digital edition of the package.
