Stephen Marley – Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life Wins 2012 Reggae Grammy with Exclusive Live Mix of Revelation Pt 1

Congratulations to Stephen Marley for winning this years 2011 Reggae Grammy for this CD “Revelation Pt1: The Root of Life”.  He went up against his brother Ziggy Marley’s CD “Wild and Free”, Shaggy’s “Summer Kingston”, Israel Vibration’s “Reggae Nights” and Monty Alexanders “Harlem-Kingston Express Live”.  As an exclusive special to celebrate the great achievement I share with you a live mix of tracks from Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life.  These tracks are taken from a few different shows on Stephens 2011 tour supporting the CD.  In my opinion, Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life is one of the best reggae releases in the last 10 years. Track after track of wicked songs and murderous riddims. All but False Friends and Working Days which I have not heard live are included here and I have also included a complete video broadcast from Stephens Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life tour from Aug. 20th 2011 Lowlands Festival,the Netherlands.

For Bob Marley fans, it’s time to get up, stand up … and run to the nearest indie theater. Magnolia Pictures announced today they have acquired U.S. rights to Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald‘s long-in-development Bob Marley documentary Marley, described as the definitive documentary about the legendary musician, from his earliest days to his rise to international superstardom.

Marley is executive-produced by Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley, and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. Made with the unprecedented support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, archival photos, and incredible performances and interviews with his family, friends and bandmates.

Documentary distribution maestros Magnolia Pictures will release the film theatrically and on VOD April 20, and some time later VH1 will premiere the film on television as part of its Rock Doc series.

“This documentary is the ultimate revelation of my father’s life … The family is proud to be able to have the world finally experience this emotional journey,” said Ziggy Marley in a statement.
