Not many musical acts can claim to have a quarter-billion — that’s billion with a “B” — recordings sold, but Bob Marley & The Wailers have been introducing new generations to reggae for more than 30 years.
One of the seminal albums for the sound, the group’s 1977 album “Exodus” earned the honor “Best Album of the Century” by Time magazine in 1999, and “One Love,” perhaps its biggest hit, was named “Song of the Millenium” by BBC. And now Santa Clarita Valley music lovers can hear Al Anderson of The Wailers — who’s toured with Bob Marley since 1975 — when he comes to the Santa Clarita Valley on Aug. 14.
While the “Exodus” album was recently re-released and remastered for its 40th anniversary, now you can come listen to one of reggae music’s most influential bands play a live show in an intimate setting, where you can hear your favorites like “Jamming,” “One Love” and “Buffalo Soldier” from the artists who helped make the songs famous.
