I admire many reggae artists and Bob Marley was definitely a talented and charismatic man, and I like a lot of his music, but I feel that there is much better Reggae out there. Jimmy Cliff's Too Many rivers To Cross is an imperious track but his main success was with The Harder They Come soundtrack and not a lot else.

Marley definitely helped spread the Reggae sound worldwide, but there was an audience already built in the UK before Marley came to prominence due to the influx of West Indians in the 50's and 60's and the skinhead culture of the late 60's warmly embracing it.

Well I don't think I would have ever listened to Jimmy Cliff, had it not been for Bob Marley; he was the one who made reggae more accesable to people, as well as popularized it, and if I had had never listened to him, I surely would not have listened to or even heard of Jimmy Cliff at all.
