Many of the photographs taken by Dutch photographers are seen here for the first time. The firsthand accounts [...] make this version of Bob's story unique. Excellent documentation of a brief moment in time and place, shedding new light on the man and his touring milieu."
There's hundreds of books out there about Bob Marley but very few are unique. This is one of the unique and necessary ones. It contains beautiful photos and nice information about BMW journey through the Netherlands. Done out of love and for the price I'd buy a copy today. Pure quality.
This is a really a great coffee table book. The photos are an awesome window into Bob's 1976 trip to Amsterdam during the Rastaman Vibration tour, and capture Bob with certain levels of both innocent exuberance and engagement with others that I've rarely seen in other photo sets of the Gong. The photos are printed on nice quality paper too, so it's really something to see.
