Won't You Help to Sing These Songs of Freedom

One of the albums from my recent windfall which is getting kept is Legend by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
One that I suspect that I had at one stage - on cassette at the very least.
14 songs that  you will all be familiar with and every one a classic in it's own way
Ranked at number 46 in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and one which has sold a staggering estimated 25 million copies.
This song, originally from Uprising is rather special and also gives me an excuse to feature this duet taken from 2003's Cash Unearthed.

Three absolute musical legends and all sadly no longer with us

Bob Marley & the Wailers - Redemption Song

Johnny Cash (with Joe Strummer) - Redemption Song


  1. Quite frankly we might as well all switch off our devices for the rest of the day right now. This is as good as it gets.

  2. Bob Marley & the Wailers - Love it!! (For some reason, couldn't play the second one, but will try later.)

  3. Love Bob Marley and love this song so if it was a compare and contrast he would win hands downs but really enjoyed the Johnny and Joe version too - Very moving recordings made by Johnny in his later years. And, all now gone.
