Well over three decades after Marley’s death, he and his bandmates remain the most famous reggae artists of all time. Bob Marley and the Wailers explores their legacy.

Illustrated with photos and memorabilia from all phases of their journey, Bob Marley and the Wailers illuminates the lives and times of the man and his collaborators. Indeed, the Wailers are one of the most famous bands of all time, period.
