Hundreds of candid and intimate photographs of the artists and producers who brought the reggae sound to the international stage, captivating a generation.

Includes never-before-seen shots of Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Toots Hibbert, Burning Spear, Jacob Miller, Third World, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and of course, Bob Marley, the reggae icon and subject of the biopic Bob Marley: One Love.

With a foreword by acclaimed rock journalist and director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous).

During 1975 and 1976, renowned underground photo-journalist Kim Gottlieb, and her husband, Island publicity head Jeff Walker, documented what is now widely recognized as the Golden Age of reggae. Over 2 years of historic trips to Jamaica and exclusive meetings in Los Angeles, Kim took iconic photographs of the artists who would go on to define the reggae genre.

Kim’s photographs include never-before-seen performance photos, candid behind-the-scenes footage of Bob’s home in Jamaica, and exclusive records of key moments in reggae history, such as Bob’s first US television appearance, the historical Dream Concert with Stevie Wonder in Jamaica, and Bob meeting George Harrison backstage at the Roxy in 1975.

Reggae historian Roger Steffens' vivid contributions illustrate the significance of those early years in reggae documented in Kim’s photographs, many of which have not been seen in over 30 years, and many more of which have never been released to the public.

Intimate and revealing, Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae is a rare and beautiful record of one of the most exciting moments in music history, told through the photographs of a true artist.
 

Kim Gottlieb-Walker has been a photographer for over forty years and has worked throughout the entertainment industry in film (John Carpenter's Halloween and Escape from NY), television (Cheers, Family Ties, Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories), popular culture (Andy Warhol, Woody Allen, Philip K Dick) and music including Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, Gram Parsons and Pink Floyd for the music press.

She lives with her husband, Jeff, in Los Angeles.

"’Reggae got soul,’ Toots Hibbert sang in one of his best-known songs, and Kim Gottlieb-Walker's remarkable photographs coax that soul out of shadow and light. Her images from Jamaica capture the rough environment that shaped and challenged these artists, and the unquenchable joy that filled their music. They're the next-best thing to listening.”—Richard Cromelin
