V/A - Exodus 40 - 1Xtra Remake (2017)

Exodus - 1Xtra Remake
David Rodigan
BBC Radio 1 FM
31 December 2017


To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Bob Marley & The Wailers album 'Exodus', 1Xtra has re-created this masterpiece with the likes of Protoje, Chronixx, Kiko Bun, Morgan Heritage, the Marley Brothers and more. It includes an extended interview with Chris Blackwell.  Side One of the album, always the stongest again shines best on this project. Although Jamming & Turn Your Lights Down Low are well conceived versions too.

Programme first broadcast on BBC R1Xtra Sunday 4 June, 2017 at 7pm. This repeat is a first time broadcast on FM radio. The first 8 minutes of the Chris Blackwell interview were patched in from the BBC i-player as the beginning of the FM recording missed it.

This was the final bootleg of the month for 2017.

  1. Hard to improve on perfection but I look forward to this re-imaging of Exodus.
