This is May 11 the death day of Bob Marley a man of African-British blood who, within an extremely disenabling environment, converted an ordinary Jamaican folk music to a modern music and drawing international audience to it. He spiced it with philosophical input and instrumental melody. All these made him to become the first super star in the third world (a Herculean feat).
Some of his later life Albums and their most popular tracks are:
1. Exodus (One Love and Three Little Birds), 2. Uprising (Real Situation and Redemption Song),
3. Confrontation (Bufallo Soldier, Black Man Redemption, Stiffnecked Fool and Chant Down Babylon),
4. Rastaman Vibration (Positive Vibration, Who The Cap fit and War),
5. Survival (Africa Unite, Ride Natty Ride), 6. Kaya (Kaya, Is This Love and Time Will Tell).
His earlier Albums are:
1. Catch A fire (Baby We've Got A Date, Stop That Train, Stir It up and Concrete Jungle)
2. Natty Dread (No Woman No Cry, Bend Down Low, Natty Dread, Talking Blues)
3. Burnin' The Wailers (Get Up Stand Up, Hallelujah Time, Small Axe, Pass it on, Put it On, Duppy Conqueror, One Foundation, Put It On, and Rastaman Chant)
4. Shake Down (Stop The Train, Cheer Up, Go Tell it On The mountain)
5. Chances Are ( Chances Are, Soul Rebel, Dance Do The Reggae, Mellow Mood)
Other singles there are like Trenchtown Rock, Judge Not, Lick Samba, etc.
According to Robert Nesta Marley in his Burnin' The Wailers album, "One bright morning when my work is over I'll fly away home to Zion".

His lyrics and tunes have continued to inspire generations upon generations so much that his death appears faked and untrue.
