Jaffe witnessed Marley's life and increasing fame during those years. GREAT pictures of Peter Tosh and of course of Bob and the rest of the Wailers. I found the book to be a bit of an ego trip for the author to point himself out at every oportunity in the pictures that he was in haming up the shot as he always seem to be Bogarting. Some how Lee always looks even more disshevled than the rastas themselves.

SO MUCH THINGS TO SAY The Oral History of Bob Marley By Roger Steffens .

SO MUCH THINGS TO SAY The Oral History of Bob Marley By Roger Steffens Photographs by the author 434 pp. Norton & Company. It’s in his music, his life story, his worldview and the way he carries himself - he seems like an extension of the people and their leader. His music does not come across as a commercial gesture because it’s as if he’s on the public stage to speak for his constituents and give voice to their feelings and their needs. Marley wrote the song while sitting alongside his friend Lee Jaffe, who says Marley began with the line I shot the sheriff, to which Jaffe added, But you didn’t get the deputy.

Shipping to Russian Federation. Catch a Fire: The Life of Bob Marley By Timothy White.

An intimate portrait of two years on the eve of fame by a friend and collaborator of the Wailers.

In 1973 young artist and filmmaker Lee Jaffe met Bob Marley in New York City and within hours cemented a friendship that would see Jaffe becoming a "Wailer" right down (or up) to his dreadlocks. While Marley was well known in Jamaica, he was little known in the rest of the world. Jaffe witnessed Marley's life and increasing fame during those years. He helped organize Marley's first American tour and played reggae with the Wailers throughout Jamaica. He learned Rastafarian ways. And he took wonderful, candid photographs of the many colorful characters who moved through Bob's world. This book, with the photographs and Jaffe's account of those exciting years, is a lens through which we have an intimate view of the young Marley. Jaffe's recollections of life with Marley are little diminished by time. Indeed, they are as colorful as the photographs, and as revealing. 120 four-color photographs.

This is a coffee-table-style book and the 5-star rating should be understood in that context. Any Marley/reggae fan, I suppose, wouldn't mind have this sitting around in their home. Lots of great photos and Jaffe's text is of significant interest as he was the "white Wailer" who hung out with the guys and played with the band for a short period (harmonica). Anyone who spent time with Bob will likely have observations to make that are worth hearing and Jaffe is no exception to the rule. It certainly isn't anything close to a biography of Bob or a portrait of Bob as a man of his times. It can be seen as a journal of significant interest in the life of someone who spent a brief period of time with the great Bob Marley. Review by the author of Stir It Up: The CIA Targets Jamaica, Bob Marley and the Progressive Manley Government, a novel.

i read the book at a friends and had to have a copy for myself. It was priced right and received it right away. Nice job

The beautiful photos that give an intimate look at the life of Bob Marley before he became such an iconic figure would be enough, but together with the insightful and thoughtfully written accounts of those times by Lee Jaffe, this book is a definite must-have!!!

A treasure of great full-color photos - you feel like you're there in Jamaica. Also a leisurely read with interesting personal views of Bob Marley provided by Lee Jaffe. Very well presented on excellent stock paper; it may be a "coffee-table" book but every word is worth reading.

I understood that the book was about Bob Marley in the early years before fame, however, there was more information about Peter Tosh than Bob Marley.

Great book to add to my collection of books I buy and never read! Maybe one day I will break my leg and not be able to work for a month and plow through my growing library. Netflix will also have to go down at the same time.
"One Love" is great for two reasons: 1) the extremely rare pictures and 2) Lee Jaffe's chronicles of the Wailers personalities and experiences.
This book is chock full of extremely rare Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Bob Marley photos, most of which have only been seen by those close to Lee Jaffe. As an example, if you are reading this review, you are most likely aware of Peter Tosh's Legalize It album cover...you know, the one where he is sitting in a ganja field with his pipe. Contained within the pages of this glorious book are several pictures from the Legalize It photo shoot by Jaffe, who had a trigger happy finger, and Jaffe's impeccable memory allows for detailed captions of the photos in the book.
He also tells of his experiences with Bob Marley and crew, in response to Roger Steffens' probing questions. Jaffe has a lot to say and doesn't leave any details out. I bought the book for the pictures and was very satisfied with Jaffe's words. Through Jaffe we glean minute details about what life was like for the Wailers and crew prior to "bussing it" on the international music scene. He brings those experiences to life.
As a bonus, this book is attractively laid out with vibrant color schemes that are not too busy.
