In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Bob Marley Exodus album a re-release is coming out as a USB Music Album.
The USB album will be available May 28th to a limited 4,000 with exclusive video footage of Bob Marley and the Wailers playing at London’s Rainbow Theater back in June of 1977.
2,000 copies will also be released in the MicroSD card format along with a CD version. The CD version will have the exact look and feel as the original LP which was released in 1977.
Doing music releases on a flash drive are slowly becoming more popular. Now available are The Fratellis on flash.
The 256MB flash drive includes the single Baby Fratelli (listen now), the video which goes along with it, a web link and “competition,” whatever that is. I would say The Fratellis have a touch of Penny Wise, Wild Flower and my buddies band Imperial X.
USB flash drives continue to pave the way on how people use solid state memory. First we had the simple replacement of the floppy via USB thumb drive, then our beloved U3 platform for portable applications, now we see bands releasing music on flash drives. I don’t think we’ll ever see that from Compact Flash or Sony and their Memory Stick.
