Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley
David Burnett, Chris Salewicz, Chris Murray
In honor of the sixtieth anniversary of Bob Marley's birth, Soul Rebel presents for the first time David Burnett's extraordinary photographs of one of the most respected international musical artists of our time. On an assignment for Time magazine, Burnett first photographed Marley in Jamaica in 1976 and continued to document the reggae legend on tour and in performance throughout Europe during the spring of 1977. Burnett's award-winning talent, coupled with Marley's larger-than-life charisma, resulted in this extraordinary collection of previously unseen images. Also included are compelling images of Peter Tosh, Lee Scratch Perry, Burning Spear, Ross Michael, and many more. Along with Burnett's remarkable photographs, Soul Rebel features an essay by author Chris Salewicz, one of the leading writers on Jamaican music and culture, as well as a foreword by Editor Chris Murray. Soul Rebel is sure to be an invaluable book for music lovers everywhere.
