One of Bob Marley & the Wailers’ most famous albums is getting the deluxe reissue treatment. On June 2, the Marley family and Island Records are putting out expanded and remastered editions of Exodus. The release date is one day shy of the original record’s 40th anniversary.

As part of the celebration, Marley’s son Ziggy has created Exodus 40 – The Movement Continues, which a press release is calling a “restatement” of Exodus. He’s gone back to the original tapes, fashioned new recordings out of “unused and never-before-heard vocals, lyric phrasing and instrumentation” and re-sequenced the tracks. This new disc will be included in a two-CD package and a three-CD set that adds performances at London’s Rainbow Theater captured the week the album was released.

The Super Deluxe Edition takes vinyl versions of those three records and adds a fourth LP comprised of two takes on “Punky Reggae Party,” — the original and a dub — and an extended mix of “Keep on Moving.” There are also a pair of 7″ singles, “Waiting in Vain” b/w “Roots” and “Smile Jamaica (Part One)” b/w “Smile Jamaica (Part Two).” The Super Deluxe Edition will come out on June 30.

In addition, a gold vinyl version of the original record will also be released. You can check out the track listing below and pre-order at Marley’s web store. All pre-orders for the Super Deluxe Edition come with a digital download of a new take on “Exodus” in which Beenie Man, Queen Ifrica, Tarrus Riley and others have recorded new vocals onto the original. The track was overseen by Stephen Marley.
