Jamaica – Family members of famed reggae singer Bob Marley have reportedly discovered a number of eight-track recordings by the late singer. The previously unheard songs, slated to be turned to an upcoming album, are sure to surprise and delight devoted fans.
Marley’s son, Ziggy, hopes to remaster the 1970s recordings, adding his own vocals and inviting contributions by artists like Carlos Santana.
The Marley family has approached Universal Music with the project with aspirations for release some time next year.
Ziggy Marley recently released his own solo CD, Dragonfly, on Private Music/RCA. The rock-based CD marks his first venture without the Melody Makers, his backup group featuring other Marley family members.
