Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer

Biography

Bob Marley was a hero figure, in the classic mythological sense. His departure from this planet came at a point when his vision of One World, One Love -- inspired by his belief in Rastafari -- was beginning to be heard and felt. The last Bob Marley and the Wailers tour in 1980 attracted the largest audiences at that time for any musical act in Europe.

Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"Bob's music has always conveyed a message of hope, unity and love. It has brought countless people together as it did that night 30 years ago in Pittsburgh. To hear that music today and to be able to share it with a new generation shows that Bob is as relevant today as he was 30 years ago," says Rita Marley.

Product Description

2011 two CD live archive release. Recorded 30 years ago while Marley was touring in support of his album Uprising, Live Forever is Bob Marley's last recorded concert. This never before released audio collection offers an incredible snapshot of one of music's most influential performers. This unforgettable concert contains unique performances of "No Woman No Cry," "Jammin'," and "Is This Love," to name a few, and depicts a musical innovator and inspiration to people of many cultures and generations. This spectacular audio documentary Live Forever, also immortalizes the last song Marley ever performed live in concert: "Get Up Stand Up," his rally cry for equality.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD FIERCE EXPERIENCE OF MARLEY AND HIS BAND LIVE February 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Two discs 49,41 minutes each approximately. The bonus disc contains approximately 28 minutes of music, plus an 8+ minute Marley family interview (enhanced video), from 2010. The audio tracks on the bonus disc (available only from Best Buy for a limited time) are-"I Know A Place", "Punky Reggae Party" (12" version), "Smile Jamaica", "Who Colt The Game", and "Keep On Moving". This set hovers between 4.5 and 5 stars. The sound is very good, taken directly from the mixing board at the concert. The only exceptions are tracks 7 and 8 on the second disc, which are from "secondary" sources due to the soundboard tape running out. These two tracks "Work" and "Get Up Stand Up", are a bit distant and muddy sounding-think fairly good bootleg quality, which is a shame because "Get Up Stand Up" (especially) is a stand out rendition. But the whole concert was originally not intended for general release, rather it was taped so Marley and the band could have a record of this (among others) night from the tour. The discs are slipped inside a tri-fold cardboard holder. The ten page booklet contains information on the concert and a number of good photos of Marley and the band. The band consists of Marley, Carlton Barrett-drums, Aston "Family Man" Barrett-bass, Junior Marvin-lead guitar, Al Anderson-lead guitar, Alvin Patterson-percussion, Earl Lindo-keyboards, Tyrone Downie-keybpoards, and the I Threes, Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths, and Rita Marley-background vocals.

This concert, Marley's last, is a very fine example of Bob Marley and his friends/musicians in concert. Arguably not as fierce as "Babylon By Bus" or the even earlier "Live!" (both from the 70's), it's still an awesome listening experience for Marley followers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remember the show February 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was fortunate to have been at this show. With some friends from Kenyon College we drove 4 hours to Pittsburgh in a small cramped car filled with certain commodities to get us psyched up.

Bob put on a terrific show and this album captures it. What memories.

The i-Threes opened and I still recall them swaying in time to the music. I recall they did three songs before Bob came out to thunderous applause. He was dancing the entire 90 minutes except for the acoustic Redemption Song which he performed solo and in a laid back manner.

Nobody in the audience knew that Bob was sick. His energy level was extremely high and he had total command of the audience.

PS - If anyone from the label reads this, I have some great photos from the show. I was shooting with a Nikon Telephoto lens and we were down front for the encore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must own for Marley fans! February 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This new live release is a must own for Bob Marley fans. Recorded on September 23, 1980, this was Bob Marley's last performance. This show was released many years ago on a Japanese import entitled One Day of Bob Marley. The quality of the Japanese import was quite good. However, this new release of the same concert is much better. The import version didn't include Redemption Song, Work, and Get Up Stand Up. This concert was part of Bob Marley's Uprising Tour, to support the Uprising release. Marley performed two shows at Madison Square Garden prior to this show. While in New York, Marley collapsed while jogging. He was told to cancel the remaining part of his U.S. tour, but ended up doing one final show, the Pittsburgh performance. For being over 30 years old, this live recording sounds excellent. This incredible performance is a must have for your Marley collection.

*Super Deluxe Edition Notes*

The Super Deluxe Edition includes a 2 CD set of the concert, 3 180-gram audiophile LP's of the concert, and a reproduction of the Uprising tour program.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Mediocre Sound on CD2? February 6, 2011
By Dan McG
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful and moving performance. But does anyone else notice the drastic audio quality change on all of disc 2, or is mine just defective? Disc 1 is a decent stereo monitor mix with good separation. But from the first track on disc 2 the sound is way over in the right channel and nearly mono, with only an occasional keyboard or percussive sound in the center. I know the last 2 tracks are from an audience tape but it's as if they made all of disc 2 sound bad so the last 2 tracks don't stand out. I have heard bootleg versions that don't have this problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars further background info for the curious fans February 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
as there are already many reviews which say everything (it's a historical document with very good sound quality and although not being Marley's best show, it's definitely worth buying it as there are great renditions of many well-known hits and fans' favourites), I just want to share some further information I have gathered for those who are interested in more background information about this release and this concert:

the original soundboard tape covers the opening I-Three set, and the whole Marley set until the tape runs out about 30 seconds before the segue from "Work" to "Get Up, Stand Up". for this release they remastered the whole tape to the best quality you can get, but they cut out the incomplete part of "Work" and instead took the two last songs from a "secondary" source which is actually an audience recording.

Most illegal bootlegs cover "Natural Mystic" to "Is This Love?". they used to be sped up, and have the audience cheering between the songs cut out, so it can fit on one disc. on this release most transitions have been preserved uncut.

What still remains a big mystery to me is the quality of the audience recording they used for the last two songs "Work" and "Get Up, Stand Up". the original audience recording (which also covers the audience noise after "Could You Be Loved?" and the following song "Is This Love?", as well as the noise of people leaving after "Get Up, Stand Up") has much better sound, clear and very crisp and well-balanced regarding the fact that it's an audience recording... they definitely worsened the sound for some (legal?) reasons... if you want to get hold of the above-mentioned original audience source you can easily find it in the internet.
