The second half of the 1970s was a prolific era for Bob Marley, at the peak of his glory days, during which he was releasing an album a year. After Rastaman Vibration in 1976, Exodus in 1977, the Jamaican artist released this Kaya in 1978, with tracks originating from the same session as Exodus, recorded during the first few months of his exile in London, in early 1977. The album is widely considered as his lightest, no doubt because of its theme, as Kaya means marijuana in Jamaican slang. The album starts off with Easy Skanking’s“Excuse me while I light my spliff”, as if Marley was totally at ease with the B-side nature of these songs. But it would be a mistake to underestimate the hit machines that were the Wailers, as this album features two of their discography’s biggest successes, Is This Love and Satisfy My Soul – certified double platinum in France and gold disc in the USA. Bob Marley also used these sessions to revisit his Lee Perry period, first with the title song Kaya, for which he wrote a chiselled version without Scratch’s wacky flamenco guitar, like a symbol of Island’s influence – some would say to the detriment of romanticism… –, while Sun Is Shining, more ethereal than its original, rose to new heights and spiciness with Junior Marvin’s electric guitar. On the B-side at the time, one could find She’s Gone, a song about an ousted lover, Crisis, which sounds like a spin-off born out of a rehearsal for Is This Love, or the “rastaman chant” Time Will Tell, cadenced by Nyabinghi drumming. The album ends in a deadpan way with Smile Jamaica, a title composed for its namesake concert on December 5th, 1976 at the National Heroes Park in Kingston, Jamaica, in which Bob Marley took part two days after being shot… © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

1977 was the year that Bob Marley became a superstar, but it was also the year that marked the beginning of the end. In January, Bob was exiled to London after being shot in Jamaica and recorded his new album, Exodus, in the Island studios. Packed with hits (One Love, Jamming, Three Little Birds, to name but a few), the album received universal acclaim after its release – its title track became No. 1 in England and Germany – and finally got him noticed by black American music stations. On 10th May 1977, the Wailers kicked off their international tour in Paris. During their stay in the French capital, Bob injured his foot and as the wound worsened, it was revealed that he had skin cancer. The tour was cut short, ending abruptly in London with four shows at the Rainbow Theatre.The performance on June 4th, which was also captured on video, has now been re-released on this album. Bob Marley is joined on stage by his legendary rhythm section composed of Carlton and Aston Barrett (drums and bass), Tyrone Downie on keyboards, Alvin “Seeco” Patterson on percussion, Junior Marvin – who turned down an offer from Stevie Wonder to join the Jamaican – on guitar, and the I Threes on backing vocals. The tracklist is an extravaganza of his greatest hits (Trenchtown Rock, I Shot the Sheriff, No Woman No Cry and Lively Up Yourself, featuring a deeply soulful blues solo by Marvin). Also included are three excerpts from their newest album, The Heathen, Jamming and finally, Exodus for a frenetic finale expertly led by Tyrone Downie. A beautiful piece of history. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
