Publisher Comments:

"’Reggae got soul,’ Toots Hibbert sang in one of his best-known songs, and

Kim Gottlieb-Walker's remarkable photographs coax that soul out of shadow

and light. Her images from Jamaica capture the rough environment that shaped

and challenged these artists, and the unquenchable joy that filled their

music. They're the next-best thing to listening.” — Richard Cromelin

During 1975 and 1976, renowned underground photo-journalist Kim Gottlieb,

and her husband, Island publicity head Jeff Walker, documented what is now

widely recognized as the Golden Age of reggae. Over two years of historic

trips to Jamaica and exclusive meetings in Los Angeles, Kim took iconic

photographs of the artists who would go on to define the genre and captivate

a generation.

Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae features candid and intimate

photographs of all of the musicians, artists and producers who brought the

reggae sound to the international stage, including Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer,

Toots Hibbert, Burning Spear, Jacob Miller, Third World, Lee “Scratch” Perry

and, of course, Bob Marley. Kim’s photographs include never-before-seen

performance shots, candid behind-the-scenes footage of Bob’s home in

Jamaica, and exclusive records of key moments in reggae history, such as

Bob’s first US television appearance, the historical Dream Concert with

Stevie Wonder in Jamaica, and Bob meeting George Harrison backstage at the

Roxy in 1975.

Acclaimed rock journalist and director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous)

introduces this volume with a rousing foreword describing the time he

accompanied Jeff and Kim to Jamaica to witness the burgeoning music scene

there. Reggae historian Roger Steffens writes lucidly about the significance

of those early years in reggae, and describes the pivotal moments documented

in Kim’s photographs, many of which have not been seen in over 30 years, and

many more of which have never been released to the public. Intimate and

revealing, Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae is a rare and beautiful

record of one of the most exciting moments in music history, told through

the photographs of a true artist.
