    Kaya 40 (Pre-Order)

    The Marley Family, Island Records, and UMe will collectively proclaim the sun is shining in celebration of 40 years of Kaya, Bob Marley & The Wailers' historic March 1978 release. This most special anniversary edition will feature Stephen Ragga Marley's exciting and vibrant new Kaya 40 mixes of all ten tracks from the original album alongside its original mixes.


    Recorded in London concurrently with the material that ultimately comprised 1977's Exodus - a record proclaimed by Time Magazine in 1999 to be the Best Album of the 20th Century - Kaya is the perfect sonic-sibling bookend that shares all the joy, spirit, and literal DNA of some of Marley's most groundbreaking material. Kaya contains a number of the most enduring, heartfelt songs in the entire Marley canon, including Is This Love, Easy Skanking, and Sun Is Shining.


    Kaya was initially released just one month ahead of Bob Marley & The Wailers headlining the legendary One Love Peace Concert at The National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica on April 22, 1978, an event that featured 16 of reggae's biggest acts. One Love Peace was heralded as Marley's triumphant return to his native soil, following his long exile in London after having fled the country as a result of a December 1976 assassination attempt at his Kingston homestead.


    The album was recorded with the then-new configuration of The Wailers that comprised brothers Carlton and Aston Family Man Barrett on drums and bass, Tyrone Downie on keyboards, Alvin Seeco Patterson on percussion, and the I Threes - Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths, and Judy Mowatt - on backing vocals, along with newest member Julian (Junior) Marvin on guitar. Two of Kaya's songs had previously appeared in different arrangements on 1971's Soul Revolution - the title track, and Sun Is Shining.


    Stephen's goal in mixing Kaya 40 was to create a balance that drew heavily from the original versions. Using Bob's vocals from demos from original Kaya sessions that were recorded at different tempos, Stephen synched the vocals with alternate takes and layered it over different instrumental arrangements. Stephen tried to keep the flavor as authentic as possible. To mix the album, he used a similar minimal approach, basing his version heavily off the classic analog concepts they used in the 1970s.


    Bob Marley's artistic legacy forever endures, and the 40th anniversary edition of Kaya only serves to reinforce just how much we all share the shelter of this special music.

    Kaya (Awaiting Repress)

    Features Original Artwork

    Kaya continues what has become an unspoken tradition in the evolution of Bob Marley & the Wailers discography -- blending western sounds and motifs with the icons and traditions from the very core of Jamaican society. In fact, the very word kaya is synonymous with marijuana in Rastafarian culture. Likewise, the album Kaya could be easily construed as an open love letter or musical paean to the lifestyle that Marley so eagerly embraced and promoted.


    Themes of commonality and unity pervade this release more so than previous albums. Likewise, the overt political stances that had become somewhat of a moniker for Marley and the Wailers are temporarily replaced by timeless compositions, such as the eternally optimistic Easy Skanking and Is This Love. Marley had not -- as some proclaimed -- gone soft, however. The light, at times practically giddy, rhythms on Satisfy My Soul contrast the darker brooding sonic and lyrical images on Running Away.


    The most pressings issues Marley deals with concern ever-increasing spiritual consciousness. Throughout Kaya, humble thanks is offered to, as well as guidance sought from, Jah -- evidence that the spirituality that permeates the Wailers music is real and not lip service. Kaya could be considered the oasis before the political and personal eruptions that would inform and influence Marley and the Wailers next studio releases Survival and Uprising.

    Babylon By Bus

    Features Die Cut Cover Art!

    Arguably the most influential live reggae album ever, Babylon by Bus captures Bob Marley and the Wailers during the European leg of their Kaya tour in the spring of 1978. The success of this set was not entirely unexpected, however. If the universal and widespread acclaim of LIVE! -- their first concert recording -- was an indicator, all involved knew that a Bob Marley & the Wailers performance contained unique energies and a vibe all of its own. Sharply contrasting the somewhat pastoral grooves of the Kaya album, Babylon by Bus possesses a more aggressive sound -- which was a trademark of this particular band. Tyrone Downie's progressive rock keyboard flavors on Exodus, as well his judiciously located percussive clavinet accentuations during Punky Reggae Party, lock in with Aston Familyman Barrett's viscous basslines to create something akin to psychedelic reggae or even along the lines of Parliament/Funkadelic. Likewise, Heathen highlights Anderson's explosive guitar leads, which are distinctly reminiscent of Eddie Hazel from his early days with Funkadelic.

    The House

    Porches' third record The House is a conscious effort in minimalism and honesty. "Making
    Pool"-the band's 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut-"I learned how valuable
    the spirit of the demos are," says singer Aaron Maine, "so this time I made a point of
    capturing a song the day it was conceived." Because of this desire to document immediate
    sensations, the record's fourteen tracks offer a series of diaristic vignettes. There are
    moments of emerging from fear of ego death ("Leave the House," "By My Side," "Now
    The Water"), escaping the corporeal ("Now The Water," "Swimmer"), the terrifying thrill of
    young love ("Country," "W Longing"), and parting with the past ("Wobble," "Goodbye").
    While these themes possibly paint The House in a dark light, the record is marked by an
    excitement at the prospect of self-discovery, and commitment to the process of getting
    there.


    Though Aaron largely composes on his own, The House features contributions by Alexander
    Giannascoli ((Sandy) Alex G), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), Maya Laner (True Blue, Porches),
    Kaya Wilkins (Okay Kaya), Bryndon Cook (Starchild & the New Romantic), Cameron Wisch
    (Cende, Porches), Jason Arce, Bea1991, and his own father, Peter Maine. As with Pool, Aaron
    brought his recorded work to Chris Coady (Beach House, Slowdive, TV on the Radio), who
    then mixed The House at his Sunset Sound studio.
