Just received this on DVD, having pre-ordered it... Saw it at the cinema, so know what I'm getting.

However, Amazon has sent me 3 (THREE) e-mails informing me of my savings, having pre-ordered it. A tad over the top don't you think?

P.S. The extra penny was a tax refund... Let the good times roll....

No doubt I'll pick up the DVD.

No doubt it will sit unopened alongside BABYLON and FIRE IN BABYLON for many years Confused

I paid some site last year to see Marley when it was first released. Sort of kicking myself now, because it is now on Netflix.

I went into it with low expectations. Since so many other books and interviews about Bob Marley have been such let downs. But this was pretty good. Not the best it could have been (I feel that the remaining Marley family members just ride the hell out of Bob's coattails to the extreme...just my H.O.). However it was pretty darn good. I definitely didn't feel like I wasted my time.

My Dad has this thing for collecting Jamaican movies and documentaries (both on DVD and VHS). Perhaps I could get it for him for Christmas or something.

I watched the "Roots of Reggae" DVD a few months ago.....and got to thinking how the Marley's and a few others, are still riding his coattails 30 years on, when they all are talented enough to have gone out, and made a name for themselves, outside of Bob, moreso than they've done... Rolling Eyes

That's one of my reservations about buying it.

If I get it, I wonder how long before I get round to watching it?

It took me 10 years to get round to watching "The History of Football: The Beautiful Game" narrated by Terence Stamp. Maybe I should have left it in the wrapper, as it's worth BIG money I've seen online.... Rolling Eyes
