Bob Marley and the Wailers Africa Unite: The Singles Collection
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Island
What can be said of a new single-CD collection from the man who, besides James Brown, had more impact on music worldwide than anyone else in the past 40 years? What does another CD with "Get Up Stand Up" and "One Love" achieve? It‘s better (read: larger) than the frat-party standard, Legend; there are (dull) remixes by the ubiquitous Will.i.am and Ashley Beedle, and even a great newly discovered track ("Slogans"). But all in all, Africa Unite seems like just another easy answer to one of the deepest questions in 20th century music.
