Bob Marley: Memories of Jah People

New e-book by Emmanuel Parata.

Emmanuel Parata is a French reggae lover. Since his childhood, he was lulled by the music of Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Third World and many other reggae legends...

But one artist in particular stood out: Bob Marley.

The music of Bob and his universal message permeates Emmanuel life and that is why he decided to become a collector of memorabilia.

Ten years ago, Emmanuel launched his investigative work. Motivated by his passion for reggae, he began extensive research for rare videos, concerts audios, interviews, unpublished photographs and newspaper clippings of Bob Marley & the Wailers.

Wanting to share his passion with fans around the world, he decided to create his website in 2010 BobMarleyArchive.com, and to open its archives of audio clips, interviews, rare photos, and a section called "Memories." These have now been assembled into an eBook, Bob Marley: Memories of Jah People.

"I thought there were many fans of Bob Marley, but many of these fans have never met or even seen Bob in concert, so I created Memories Of Jah People so that they can live the moment as if they were there," said Emmanuel. "About a year ago, I collected unpublished stories, real stories of people who met Bob Marley in professional settings, in person, or just at a concert. I have assembled these stories in an interactive book, and the reaction of the fans and feedback have been mostly positive."

"My new project is to write a book with a lot of stories, illustrated with original photos from my personal collection. It may take a long time, but I want the best for the fans. And I hope my dream will come true..."

It is still a work in progress. Stay tuned...
