"Seeing Marley perform is not unlike watching a trained lion; except that he has the situation, the audience under complete control. His raw, aggressive singing style is punctuated by leonine body movements; a wild toss of his tangled mane he pounces, leaps and almost roars. He is King of the Jungle for that moment. He leaves audiences dancing in the aisles."
– Sandra Jackson, New Pittsburgh Courier, 1979
