Song for the New Year: Bob Marley; So Much Trouble in The World; the final recording session, Miami 1980

This rare and wonderful footage, shot at Criteria Studios in Miami Florida in the fall of 1980, reportedly depicts the last rehearsal session Bob Marley recorded. Maestro Marley appears shortly after the 2-minute point.

Some thirty years later, and four hours northwest of Miami, the sky is shadow-gray with cold; damp winds whip the Spanish moss to and fro, to and fro.

And there is indeed so much trouble in the world.

I have great hopes for this brand new year, just the same. This year of mine. This year of yours.

May our next spin around the sun be filled with creative pleasures, good company, and as many thrilling discoveries--and new challenges to dare yourself with--as you're up for.


So much trouble in the world
So much trouble in the world

Bless my eyes this morning
Jah sun is on the rise once again
The way earthly thin's are goin'
Anything can happen.
