Reader's Choice: Bob Marley 'Concrete Jungle'

Gif Created on Make A Gif

This is a little departure from our latest Reader's Choice (My First Music) Saturday Morning items. In fact, we chose it ourselves because tomorrow, Sunday, February 6th would have been Marley's 66th birthday. His music was heavily influenced by the social issues of his homeland, and he is considered to have given voice to the specific political and cultural nexus of Jamaica. His music also influenced the development of Rock music in particular though not exclusively, and still does. (Read more about Mistah Marley on Wikipedia.)
