MARLEY, the original soundtrack for the recently released Bob Marley documentary, debuted at the top of Billboard magazine's Reggae album chart last week.

The 24-song, two-disc set contains most of the songs used throughout the documentary, with the exception of Teenager In Love

Released by Island Records/Tuff Gong, the soundtrack contains the first recording by Bob Marley, Judge Not, produced by Leslie Kong in 1962.

This is the 13th time that a Marley-theme album or compilation has topped the Billboard Reggae album chart.

The soundtrack is on three other Billboard charts. It debuted at number 122 on the Billboard 200 album chart; number 20 on the R&B Hip Hop album chart; and number eight on the Soundtrack albums chart.

Over on the iTunes chart, it is number two in the United States and number four in Canada.
