    In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <https://www.furious.com/perfect/index0823.html>, you'll find (among other things):

    The story of "Trenchtown Rock" by Eric Doumerc
    "'Trench Town Rock' was released in the early summer of 1971 on The Wailers' own Tuff Gong label and... it "turned Bob Marley into a national hero" thanks to its "lilting melody, pulsating 'riddim' and proud language." Indeed, the song's unforgettable
    bassline was to make it a major reggae anthem and Marley used "Trench Town Rock" to open his memorable concert at the Lyceum in London in 1975. The live recording of that concert was largely instrumental in launching Bob Marley's career in Europe. But
    the importance of the song transcends that fact."

    We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you have anything to share.
