EDITORS’ NOTES

Exodus catapulted Bob Marley into the international mainstream and the hearts of humankind. Released in 1977, it swayed with a keys-led vibe and husky, lilting vocals that sounded like no reggae before it. Split into two parts, thematically, the collection found Marley tackling religious politics on the heavyweight jams “Natural Mystic” and “So Much Things to Say.” Revealing his softer side for the first time, he let his voice dance across themes of sex and relationships with the flawless, feel-good anthems “Three Little Birds” and “One Love/People Get Ready.”
