I heard Marley say this exact psalm at a Marley concert I have on video which took place in California.

Does anyone have the Marley song: Selassie is the Chapel? I know it is very rare and I believe he wrote it with or inspired by Mortimo Planno or Planno wrote it himself I am not sure.

I cant think of a bad Marley song, some appeal to me more musically than others but all do lyrically.

Coming in from the Cold
Forever Loving Jah
etc etc etc

Selassie is the Chapel :)

The Complete Wailers 1967-1972

"Adpated from the country western song "Crying in the chapel" this song is one of the most sought-after of all Bob Marley's rare recordings. The most recent auction bid for one of the original singles, of which only 26 were pressed, is $3800US dollars. It began as a recording by Darell Glenn, son of the song's composer, Artie Glenn, but it was Rex Allen who turned it into a country & western hit. In Jamaica in the '60s, country music was perhaps more popular than the island's indigenous riddims. It is likely that Mortimo Planno, the Rasta elder who changed the lyrics, had heard the previous hit versions, perhaps the country smash by Rex Allen; or the '50s doo-wop by Sonny Till and the Orioles; or, most likely, Elvis Presley's more recent 1965 chart success. Whichever, Planno turned the song into a Rastafarian hymn, and pressed a couple dozen copies on his own blank label, twelve of which were taken to Ethiopia by Bob's closest friend, Jamaican soccer star Allen "skill" Cole. Planno recalls the song as being recorded at the JBC studios in Kingston on June 8,1968, a date which is disputed by Bunny Wailer, who claims that he played on the flip side of the single, "A Little Prayer" (with bears a vocal by Planno), following his release from prison in September that year. It is unlikely that the sessions were held at different times. Regardless, the song features Bob on vocals, Peter on guitar, harmonies by Peter and Rita Marley and Constantine "Dream" Walker, along with several Rasta drummers."
