Editorial Reviews

Review

"Burnett captures the haunting Misty Mornings of the Isle of Springs, and the private Jamming and cloudy studio wizardry of its musical magicians. We see intimate portraits of Burning Spear; the Bush Doctor, Peter Tosh; the irrepressible producers Jack Ruby and Lee 'Scratch' Perry; and most impressively, the Prophet Bob Marley, deep in thought and serious as a heart attack, in the process of creating and sharing his immortal Redemption Songs."

-Roger Steffens, Chairman, Reggae Grammy Committee; founder, The Beat magazine; author of Reggae Scrapbook

Format: Hardcover
A pure delight! This beautifully designed and printed book contains the kind of extraordinary photographs of reggae master Bob Marley the world has come to expect from award-winning photojournalist David Burnett, almost all of which are previously unpublished. But it is not just a picture book. Burnett spent time with Marley at Marley's home in Jamaica, and traveled with Marley and the Wailers on their famous "Exodus" European tour. He writes about them with the insight that perhaps comes from Burnett's rare access to Marley's private life few journalists were granted, combined with Burnett's rare gifts of observation and expression.

The pictures are gorgeous and illuminate Bob Marley's spirit and music. You just have to look these while listening to his songs to really "hear" them. I strongly recommend this one--just gorgeous.

In a time before publicist and stylists, when light was natural and images found (rather than created), photojournalist David Burnett captured moments that define a musical legend. Doubtful these images could be made today of the latest pop wunderkind, let alone someone of the stature of Bob Marley.

My daughter came home with a t-shirt of the man, then wanted to know who this Bob Marley was (kids today, right?)... this is the book I gave her.

Classic photojournalism at it's best.

Awsome book in itself, but the quality is like HD! Big pictures that are well placed throughout the book. Nice binding and hardback. Recieved in a reasonable amount of time even during the holidays. Must have for any Bob Marley fan

Format: Hardcover
The natural light Burnett used in the series of pictures of Marley at his home in Jamaica has the effect of making a man--who even decades later is considered a musical legend--completely down to earth and human.

"I think that rarely do you find journalists as sharp-eyed as photographers," said Burnett in an interview about his craft. "We are paid to look, and look around, we do. We notice little things that sometimes become very telling in a story."

You see these little details in the photos in Soul Rebel. The light in Marley's eyes, the lines in the skin of his hands, the lines of his face in his introspective profile.
