“One of the truly great photojournalists, Burnett has captured unforgettable images...[he] visited Marley at his Jamaican home and then amassed more shots of the reggae king on the Marley and Wailers’ “Exodus” European tour. Only a few of Burnett’s magnificent pictures saw the light of day. Now you can experience over 200 of them. Each absorbing photograph offers new insights into the soul of this timeless musician/activist. Burnett, an exceptional artist himself, allows us to travel through Marley’s eyes, right into his deepest essence. We can appreciate fully the intensity, caring, power and rebelliousness of this musical force.”

"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."
