A Time & Place - Julian Marley

Tuff Gong

Bob sure passed along some fine genes to his many offspring. I admit having trouble keeping up with all the Marley boys. Ziggy's probably garnered the highest profile, Stephen seems to shape the sounds for his younger siblings at Jamaica's Marley Music Studios. Damian 'Jr. Gong' released the brilliant Halfway Tree album last year, and 2004 appears to be A Time & Place for Julian Marley. Seriously, I thought one of the lads would end up being the 'Tito Jackson' of the family but Julian's torch burns bright as he walks his father's path. A Time & Place faithfully recreates that squelchy, rubbery, impossibly funky Marley and the Wailers sound that made many of us fall in love with reggae in the first place.
