Arthur Gorson shot a series of images of Bob Marley in his home country of Jamaica while on assignment for the groundbreaking Rolling Stone article, “The Wild Side of Paradise.” The article finds Marley and his band roaming around Kingston, and documents the start of Jamaican-bred reggae seeping into the popular consciousness. That year, Marley and his band were embarking on their first European tour and recorded their first album for Island Records, Catch a Fire, at Harry J’s studio in Kingston. Only a few months later, Marley would release the album Burnin’ as a solo artist, which included the song “I Shot the Sheriff,” one of the many songs that would go on to define his career & legacy⁠.
