Descriptions du produit



I have always been involved with a hard type of living. My father I never even knew. My mother did domestic work for thirty shillings a week. We had to fight hard. Jamaica a university for the whole world; a place where the truth may be revealed. But money in Jamaica is like a piece of fat riding the people’s heart. I don’t work for money. I have no desire to be a superstar. I just do what God tell me to do. If there’s anything me have to do, me a go do it. Me like meself better when I just sing. More than trying to sing. Singing something real, you don’t sing it; you really see it and you mean it. So you don’t have no sweet way to sing it. You could almost talk it.


The teacher, she say, “Who can talk, talk; who can make anything, make; who can sing, sing!” And me sing. There are those who play music for kicks. I am not the kind of artist who plays for kicks. I do not go out of my way to do another’s song. You see, me don’t believe in trend or fashion. What people call soul music. To me, soul music is music that talk about truth. It must have a human story to the song relating a real-life situation.


Every time I play I get that fresh inspiration. So if somebody try to catch up with we, we can leave and change again. Because that’s what we been doing over the years. Every time that we make some music, they catch up with we. So we change. Just like ska, rock steady, reggae. If them come too much and call it reggae, we go to nyabinghi music, the first music. That mean death to black and white oppressors. But that type of music, it come from the heart. Every time you hear drums, you hear it. Sometimes soft, sometimes frightening. You get to know it. Like when I first hear Rasta drumming. I think it’s something terrible going to do with me. Because it’s something that we no understand. And yet it’s so near to me and then we get to understand and everything become natural again.


Rastafari means head creator--God. Mind you, everyone has a different conception of God. He said, “Every knee shall bow and tongue confess, and no stone shall be left unturned.” That means whatever your color or race, you will have to confess to His Imperial Majesty, God, Allah. Thank God, we are past the worst. You see, the song comes through inspiration. Then it comes out on paper. But it’s someone tell me that. Inspiration come from Jah. It’s Jah tell you we past the worst. Is not me tell you we past the worst.


Rasta is all things. Justice, love, peace to all mankind. The God who make I and I, Him create technicolor people and Him make earth and all resources. Yes, pressure is there. And all these things. But which way true? How can you get true? The only truth is Rastafari and commandments that are made by God. Judgment catch you. Because the majority thing that is happening is judgment. A real innocent man, I don’t think anything can happen to him. God make a prophecy: those who Him love are those who love Him.


I don’t want to write if I don’t have no vision. God can give it and he can take it back. Can take you with it, too. I grew up to be a Rastaman. When I wasn’t a Rasta, I was only growing. Everyone is searching for something. Maybe all growth is a direction of where you go and find it. But everyone search for it. When I search and find, it was Rasta. Then I notice I was Rasta from ever since. The way of life is what I seek for a long time. Not in the sense of eating and clothes but in the sense of natural spiritual living and togetherness. I never liked the church because they always fighting against one another. So I must find a different way. Or if I can’t find that, God no there. So--when I find Rastafari, I say, yes!


God do everything the way Him want to do it. And there’s plenty we don’t have to understand. The cycles of time. You know, time a change. Because Jah is the greatest chess player in the world. When you have people who think a prejudice way, them take the God out of the world. There is no prejudice. You have right and wrong. The right thing to do is positive. If me hate you, there is something wrong with me. You can’t go to Zion, I can’t go to Zion that way. I have to love you. Still, I might not do things the same way as you do them. But I have to keep all the hate out of me. Because you can’t go to Zion with hate.


I don’t come down on you with blood and fire, earthquake and lightning, but you must know that within me all of that exist too. . . . You can just imagine if everyone on earth did have one day where we just put all our minds together regardless where the force is, as long as it’s positive, and just meditate for even an hour that day. And just live nice with them nice meditation. I mean, now, the climate would be nice, the smog would a leave.


After a while I start to think, well, there’s work to be done. I must deal with this music God has given me and so this music can carry me. So me say, okay, earthquake can come. But if God send me out, Him never shake no earthquake upon me. So it’s not that fate that me a trouble with.


Daily, minutely, hourly Rastas pray, you see. Praying is just talk and when you talk, every word you say must be acceptable in front of God.

Let the word of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable.

So you don’t lead a different life and then come to prayer. You make sure you pray continually, so that every word you say, God agree with it. That is prayers. And there’s another prayer where you go to some quiet place. And another prayer where your whole heart start praying through your mouth. When you live Rasta, everything must turn to peace and love. Togetherness and helpful: a righteousness.


We make the moon and stars shine and the climate get better because people cause everything--God’s people do it, mankind. Then we have plenty of wheat and corn. And mankind just cool upon the earth. Me love farming. Me want to live upon a farm later. Me no really want to live in a flat and go to a club every night and come back, then do it again.

If you’re in the country at night, when the rain fall it’s best, you know. All you hear is the rain play music on the leaves--rtttt rtttt. Yeah, that life is sweet. You can tell before the rain, the fowl get excited and oil up them feather.


You see me here? The first thing you must know about me is that I always stand for what I stand for. The second thing you must know about yourself listening to me is that words are very tricky. So when you know what me stand for, when me explain a thing to you, you must never try to look upon it in a different way than what me stand for.


Waiting in Vain” . . . nice tune, mon. From long time back. It’s for people who never dig the Wailers from long time because they just couldn’t relate. So what I do now with a tune like “Waiting in Vain,” them might like it, and wonder what a go on.


I really get the recharge from Ethiopia. Because that song “Zimbabwe” come straight from Ethiopia. I write it in a land called Shashamane. So you can say, it’s a full recharge. And when the song come out--it just happen. So you can imagine if it was Ethiopia you wrote all your songs, then nearly every song you write would happen. Then, maybe, somebody would say, “Boy, he is a prophet!”


They say Second Coming is at hand. The time is coming when everything will be revealed. Rastafari said he’d return in two thousand years. And it’s been one thousand, nine hundred and seventy-seven. If Rastafari allows me to, I’ll still be alive.


My future is in a green part of the earth. Big enough me can roam freely. I don’t feel Jamaica gonna be the right place. Need somewhere new. Ethiopia. Adventure. You could start live. I suffered all this our life . . . need some adventure. Africa big enough. Jamaica little small island, you know. When I feel that the job has been done that I and I have been sent to do, I and I pack it up. When I feel satisfied and when Jah tells me that I am finished with this work--it might be the end of the American visit or the English visit--I will know that. When as many people as possible have heard what we have to say.


The vampires--most people are negative out there but Rasta people think positive. Most people in Babylon want power. Devil want power. God don’t want power. But devil need power, ’cause devil insecure.


We is what we is. We supply the way and prophecy run it. That in this time now, we come to our heritage of culture, our ancient culture on earth. As it was in the beginning, so it shall be in the end. Only thing that can make you survive is to know the truth, and the truth is that God say Him give man everlasting life, which means everliving life.

Me say me life here--this flesh--me have to live. Me never say there was no fear of death, but me no deal with death. Me no have time to risk this flesh too much ’cause it’s this me has to do it in. The spirit is stronger than the flesh, which means the flesh is nothing for the spirit to carry. That means there’s a way to live--a way, man, it can be done. That’s where Rastafari come in. Because everyone else preach that when you die, you go to heaven. No, I don’t like that one. ’Cause if when I dead, I go to heaven, then where was I before I am? If heaven’s the right place (where I was before I am), then I should have stayed there.


Sometimes Jah show you things before they happen. That’s what happen...

GOOD read but ended much too soon as did his life. DID NOT agree with all of his religious thinking but respect his courage to express himself. I LOVE ALL HIS MUSIC AND HIS MESSAGE THROUGH SONG.

A beautiful little book with timeless wisdom that I re-read regularly. Gives unique insight into the true depths of Bob's mind, heart and soul beyond the music. A must read for any Marley fan.
