The official soundtrack for Marley, the first official documentary on the life and work of Reggae icon, Bob Marley has scored another major accolade for the late singer as it recently topped the U.S. Billboard Reggae charts.
The Marley soundtrack topped the Billboard Reggae chart last week following its official release on April 16, four days prior to the film's North American premiere. The 24 track, two-disc set features many of Marley's songs that play throughout the film as well as never before heard recording from the Reggae superstar.
The Island Records/Tuff Gong produced album features Marley's first ever recording entitled, Judge Not which was produced by Leslie Kong in 1962.
The soundtrack also features live performances of classic songs such as No Woman, No Cry, Trenchtown Rock and I Shot The Sheriff as well as singles while a member of The Wailers (including Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh) like Get Up, Stand Up and High Tide or Low Tide.
