 escaped an assassination attempt in Jamaica, he arrived in London during
 the first week of 1977 and set to work recording his fifth studio album.
 Exodus became the album that transformed Marley's career, a recording of
 extraordinary creative maturity, which resonated with audiences around the
 world. The album established Marley as the Third World's first superstar, a
 legacy that survives thirty years after the album's release.
