When the American singer Johnny Nash was invited to Sweden in 1970 to star in and
write the music for the movie
Love is Not a Game, he offered Bob Marley a piece of
the action. In 1971, Nash, Marley and producer Danny Sims decamped to Stockholm,
where they stayed with Nash keyboardist, John 'Rabbit' Bundrick, with whom Marley
and Nash wrote the movie's score. Alas, the film closed the day after the premiere due
to bankruptcy, and nobody got to hear the theme that they had written. Shortly after,
Marley vanished.

That is all I know about the Swedish links with Jamaican music in that era. Sweden did
prove itself receptive to reggae, however, when Desmond Dekkers' 'Israelites' became
a number one hit single.
