Highly displayable Kaya album signed on the front cover in black ballpoint, "Rasta Love, Kaya, Bob Marley." In very good condition, with moderately heavy overall creasing, old tape to the partially detached left edge, and a small area of minor surface loss to the upper left corner; none of which truly detract from the overall grand presentation. The record is included. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.
In contrast to earlier, more politically charged Wailers albums, the sound on Kaya—a Jamaican word for cannabis, hemp, or marijuana—was considerably more serene and laid back, and its release coincided with the One Love Peace Concert, which heralded Marley's return to Jamaica from exodus in London. Albums signed by Marley remain exceptionally scarce, with this particular title all the more desirable given its neat signature, lack of inscription, and essential role in roots-reggae history.
