Doodle #13 (Thursday 11th February 2021)
I think this doodle fits the bill of Ingeborg's Abstract Thursday challenge subject of 'Geometric', and is another from one of my 1968 art school sketch books. It certainly wasn't a day for braving the weather and anyway there was a return visit from the Bobby Van to finish off the work done on Monday.
With thanks to Ingeborg for hosting.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Bob Marley and the Wailers - No Woman, No Cry (recorded 1974, Harry J Studios, Kingston, Jamaica and Island Studios, Hammersmith)
By the time Bob Marley came to record his third album for Island records, Natty Dread, two of the Wailers (Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh) had left to forge solo careers and his new line-up included the I-Threes, three girl singers including his wife Rita Marley. None of his albums to date had been big sellers for Island, including this one, but their reputations have grown thereafter, with Natty Dread now considered possibly his best. I played it today while revisiting his albums in the new The Complete Island Recordings box set.
Because of a quarrel with his publishers, most of the songs on the album were attributed to friends and relatives. Vincent Ford was named as the composer of No Woman No Cry. It was his kindness to Bob Marley as a child that had saved Bob from starving to death on the streets, and he used the proceeds to set up a soup kitchen.
