Interview by Neville Willoughby, 1973
Length of music and interview is 30:58.
I liked "Interviews.." It was recorded in 1973 before the breakup of the "original" Wailers. The interviewer is also Jamaican, perhaps from more of a middle class background and the exchange between the two of them is interesting.
I had never really heard Marley that much in conversation. This recording is widely sold in Jamaica, Africa, and other parts of the African diaspora. I can see why it is so popular in the African world, because in it, Marley expresses a world view that is very African.
What really comes through also is how Marley had such a deep sense of spirituality. No words here can summarize this.
Marley's world view comes from the experience of being Rasta. So this is really what shines in the interview. He comments on spirituality, being an artist, laws and violence in Jamaica, Jamaican society, going to Ethiopia (Africa), his relationship with music, record producers, his identity, being Rasta. Things like that.
