From the best B-side of all time

On what can only be described as the best B-side to an album ever recorded, we find Three Little Birds as the second to last song.

The 1977 Exodus B-side has the following tracks: Jamming, Waiting In Vain, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Three Little Birds, and One Love/People Get Ready.

Exodus propelled Bob Marley to superstardom and made him one of our time’s best-loved songwriters and singers.

The seemingly simple chords of Three Little Birds make this song sound as if it has always been around. It always will be, that’s for sure!
