ZIGGY MARLEY

WILD AND FREE

2011-06-05

This is Ziggy's fourth solo studio release since leaving his brother and sisters in the Melody Makers. Since that time he has rocked with Dragonfly, did the family thing with Family Time but has failed to release a solid classic reggae disc until now. This CD begins with a track that promotes Ziggy's new super hero Marijuana Man and promotes his cause for the freedom of the herb, where Ziggy is joined by Cheers star and fellow activist Woody Harrelson. This CD may be closest to a one of his fathers disc than ever recorded dealing with personal revolutions as in the track of the same name, Marijuana in the title track and spirituality and religion in MMMM MMMM. Ziggy also sings about fatherhood and the issues associated with in "Welcome To The World". This CD was produced by Ziggy and the legendary Don Was and is a disc that will make his mother, father and brothers and sisters very proud while providing us with his finest solo release to date.
