Of his first meeting with Bob Marley, Jaffe wrote ‘I had just seen The Harder They Come [Jimmy Cliff’s reggae film] in England the week before. It was like the movie had just walked off the screen. And I was now face to face with the voice of a group whose music was the most revolutionary I had ever heard, who was both black and white and transcended race, whose music was both spiritually and socially conscious. He had this look about him, a certain aura, a certain calmness, a certain stoicism amid all the rock and roll hubris. In it but not of it. But certainly not of this place’.
