Are you in search of a essential Bob Marley book from Jamaica loaded with tons of Jamaican flavor? I thought so. Well, you probably already have a copy but if not, the book for you to get is ‘Bob Marley Reggae King of the World’ by Malika Lee Whitney and Dermot Hussey. First published in 1984 by Kingston Publishing, it has been licensed to publishers in the U.S. (E.P. Dutton, Pomegranite), UK (Plexus), Japan (Daiei ) and Germany (Minotaurus Projekt). The publishers have published several different editions and printings over the years but all (besides Japan) have kept the original look. The cover, spine and contents have been identical. Until now! LMH Publishing (formerly Kingston Publishers) has put a new look to this classic book in addition to new content. The book with the new look just hit the shelves on Feb 18th and may only be “easily” available in person in Jamaica for the time being. Hey, great excuse for a trip to Yard. You can also order the book online through LMH’s website (see link below).

Here we have yet another time capsule that captures the “world-a-reggae” according to Doctor Dread & RAS Records circa 1982. Included in this newsletter:
- One year after Bob passes on, a wonderful birthday celebration for Bob Marley in Nine Mile planned and catered by Rita Marley. Wailers play live for a small crowd of invited guests.
- Dennis Brown, Third World, Max Romeo, and Peter Tosh perform live in Rochester, NY. Yellowman plays Jamaica.
- New albums by Lone Ranger, Sammy Dread, and Mystic Revelation of Rastafari.
- Rockers movie review…
- Rare interview with former Clarendonian and RAS Records recording artist Freddie McGregor, who talks of his tour which just came to a close.
Many thanks to Doctor Dread for graciously donating this lost piece of reggae history to the MIDNIGHT RAVER REGGAE ARCHIVES!
