Exodus is a roots reggae album released by Bob Marley & the Wailers on June 3, 1977 (see 1977 in music). Much of Exodus was recorded in London, while Marley recuperated from an assassination attempt. It is widely considered to be one of Marley's best albums.

"Jamming," "Waiting in Vain" and "One Love/People Get Ready" were all huge international hits. Exodus peaked at #20 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, and #15 on the Black Albums chart. Other stand-outs include "Natural Mystic" and "The Heathen," which excel both musically and lyrically.
