Rita Marley Releases 'Lioness Of Reggae' Album On Ziggy Marley's Tuff Gong Worldwide This May

Award winning singer, musician, philanthropist and reggae icon Mrs. Rita Marley, OD will release a career retrospective of her most well-known material. The Best of Rita Marley 'Lioness of Reggae' will be released exclusively on limited edition vinyl, Friday May 3. "I felt this was a project that needed to be done, her musical legacy, message and vibe is unique to her and an important part of reggae’s history. This is a way for us to highlight and share her beautiful art", says Ziggy Marley.

Alpharita Anderson displayed a deep love of music since childhood, singing to her family while working. This passion would ultimately lead her to form The Soulettes, which led to the eventual meeting of local Trench Town musicians Robert Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston - known as The Wailers. Soon after this fateful meeting, the talented young Rita became an integral part of The Wailers musical development, as well as a constant presence and influence in her husband, Bob Marley's, life and legacy; including as a member of the I-Threes alongside Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt.

Mad Caddies' Punk Rocksteady

Rockabye Baby is a music label that creates cover albums in the style of lullabies; taking famous songs by Iron Maiden or Green Day and turning them into gentle instrumental tracks. This exists so that parents can listen to music they love and recognize, while soothing their child.

In a lot of ways, Mad Caddies' Punk Rocksteady feels like Rockabye Baby for Adults. Taking twelve classic punk songs and giving them a reggae makeover; transforming these famous songs of fire and fury into easily listenable tracks that can be played around the house on a Sunday afternoon.

The tracklisting is solid; twelve classic punk songs ranging from The Misfits to Against Me!, with a healthy serving of tracks from fellow Fat Wreck Chords labelmates. The song choice alone puts the record off to a great start, picking tracks that showcase punk's secret penchant for melody.
