Melody Makers: Play the Game Right [EMI America, 1985]
Ziggy Marley owes Bob for his voice and his band, and he's not just whistling "I Shot the Sheriff" when he thanks him for "spiritual inspiration" as well--without it this record would be empty, voice and band notwithstanding. What's still missing is not only his father's genius but his father's experience. Here's hoping the spiritual inspiration is potent enough to keep the kid from trying to substitute musical experience for the life kind.
