Song Of The Day 1977: Bob Marley - Three Little Birds

This week, we're going back to 1977 - the year punk broke and the year of Star Wars. Sit back and enjoy...

1977 saw the release of Bob Marley's classic album Exodus. Marley's ninth album was recorded while he was recovering from being wounded after an attempt was taken on his life. Staying in the UK charts for 56 consecutive weeks, Exodus was a huge album for Marley. Today's featured song is a beautiful little piece called Three Little Birds. While doing some research, I came across an alternate mix of the song, which accentuates its acoustic elements in a more stripped-down form. I've posted videos for both versions below. Please enjoy.
