Jeremy Collingwood - Lick It Back: The Jamaican Vinyl Story of Bob Marley BOOKSKU: 9780953935055
Jeremy Collingwood has done more than most in trying to set the facts straight concerning the life and music of Bob Marley. Over the years much has been written about Bob and the Wailers, much of it tailored to fit the various agenda’s of the writers, whether in books and magazines or in online forums, blogs and websites. JC is having none of it. Here he tells the story via the tale the actual records tell, focusing on the Jamaican pressed vinyl and giving full attention to the pre-breakthrough releases through the likes of Clement Dodd’s Studio One label, Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s label and Lee Perry’s Upsetter label, as well as Bob’s own Wail’m Soul’m and Tuff Gong labels.
The contents of this book are broken down into four sections; Bob’s Career, His Musical Family, His Family and an Appendix. Illustrated throughout with scans of over 500 Bob record labels and over 350 other labels, sleeves and fascinating memorabilia, this will be an essential addition to your musical library.
