Soul Rebel: A Portrait of Bob Marley
Soul Rebel
A Portrait of Bob Marley
Hardcover      ISBN: 1933784261

Award-winning and internationally renowned Washington Post and Time magazine photographer David Burnett, delivers an intimate and previously unpublished look at Bob Marley's personal life in Jamaica, music, and Exodus tour at the height of his career and shortly before his tragic death.

On assignment in Jamaica for Time magazine, photo-journalist David Burnett first photographed Bob Marley in 1976 and continued to document the Reggae legend on tour throughout Europe during the spring of 1977. Burnett's vision coupled with Marley's larger-than-life charisma resulted in an amazing collection of previously unseen images witnessed for the first time in Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley in Jamaica and Beyond. Of the more than 200 images published here, only a handful were ever used for the Time article. While focusing on Marley, Burnett's work also canvassed a broad array of burgeoning Reggae talents in Marley's native Jamaica, including portraits of Peter Tosh, Lee Scratch Perry, Burning Spear, and Ras Michael. Compelling and incomparably candid, Soul Rebel honors the anniversary of Marley's birth with a testament to the legacy of a legend. For any Reggae lover or music history buff, Soul Rebel offers a matchless glimpse into Marley's life shortly before his tragic death in 1981.

Alan Lomax: The Man Who Recorded the World
Alan Lomax
The Man Who Recorded the World
Hardcover      ISBN: 0670021997

The remarkable life and times of the man who popularized American folk music and created the science of song
Folklorist, archivist, anthropologist, singer, political activist, talent scout, ethnomusicologist, filmmaker, concert and record producer, Alan Lomax is best remembered as the man who introduced folk music to the masses. Lomax began his career making field recordings of rural music for the Library of Congress and by the late 1930s brought his discoveries to radio, including Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Burl Ives. By the 1940s he was producing concerts that brought white and black performers together, and in the 1950s he set out to record the whole world.
Lomax was also a controversial figure. When he worked for the U. S. government he was tracked by the FBI, and when he worked in Britain, MI5 continued the surveillance. In his last years he turned to digital media and developed technology that anticipated today's breakthroughs. Featuring a cast of characters including Eleanor Roosevelt, Leadbelly, Carl Sandburg, Carl Sagan, Jelly Roll Morton, Muddy Waters, and Bob Dylan, Szwed's fascinating biography memorably captures Lomax and provides a definitive account of an era as seen through the life of one extraordinary man.
