“Redemption Song” (Bob Marley Cover)

By Jeremy Hammond:

My cover of “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley.


Originally released on the 1980 Bob Marley & the Wailers album Uprising, “Redemption Song” is the final track on the final studio album release before Marley’s death in 1981.  It is also significant for having been hailed as an acoustic folk classic by many fans and critics.

Jeremy Hammond, continuing to bring great new bands to the Laptop Sessions blog, plays a heartfelt version for you in this post, complete with a nice fingerpicking section on the intro to the song.  And, please don’t adjust your screen or worry about what you’ve been inhaling… that’s a purposeful visual effect on Jeremy’s video!  🙂

We hope you enjoy this latest installment of the Guest Sessions with our favorite contributor, Jeremy Hammond.  May it help to bring hope and peace to your holidays!
