Bob Marley & The Wailers Kaya 40 Vinyl 2LP

40th Anniversary Edition Double LP!

2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ KAYA. This special 40th anniversary edition 2LP set includes the original 1978 album on the first LP while the second LP features Stephen Marley's reimagining of the album.

Recorded in part during Marley’s and the band’s 1977 exile in London, KAYA is very much the sibling record to EXODUS. Fittingly, as Ziggy Marley revisited the original session recordings for the EXODUS 40 celebration, now sibling Stephen Marley revisits the original session recordings to commemorate KAYA, bringing a fresh perspective to this suite that’s quietly referred to as the ‘Peace Treaty’ album.

Songs from Kaya were recorded during the Exodus sessions. The album contains the radio-friendly songs "Is This Love", "Satisfy My Soul", and "She's Gone".

A month before the start of the Kaya world tour, Marley & the Wailers headlined the One Love Peace Concert at the National Stadium in Kingston on April 22, 1978. This would be the first time Marley set foot in Jamaica since the group's performance at the Smile Jamaica concert after he narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in December of 1976. He would later be awarded with the Peace Medal of The Third World in New York City at the UN General Assembly.

Following the emotionally charged Exodus and the attempt on his life, Marley's Kaya reveals a more mellow, philosophical side of the Rastafarian musician. The album peaked at #50 on the Billboard and stayed on the chart for 17 weeks.
