Product Description

One Love documents the December 1999 tribute concert honoring reggae pioneer Bob Marley produced in Oracabessa Bay, Jamaica, and originally broadcast on the TNT cable network.

Exclusive DVD features also include a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound mix and a multi-angle presentation of the concert finale, enabling users to select from five separate angles.

Conceived with DVD release in mind, this high-end, live video concert taped in Jamaica lives up to its title with a generous repertoire of Bob Marley songs performed by reverent pop, hip-hop, rock, and reggae veterans. Shot on a rainy night in December 1999, the home video version expands upon an inaugural TNT cable telecast with an additional hour of performances. The DVD edition adds a premium level of special features and exclusive content.

The music's the main thing, of course, and on that front One Love is uniformly respectful, orbiting around Marley's songs and infused with whiffs of his Rastafarian world view and reggae's broader Third World perspectives. Marley's family members serve as hosts and frequent collaborators, with a limber house band further reinforcing a coherent, communal element to the performances, and the titular all-stars immerse themselves in Marley's world. Lauryn Hill opens the concert with what is clearly one of its highest points, a joyful "Turn the Lights Down Low." Chrissie Hynde and Erykah Badu take turns duetting with Jimmy Cliff, and another reggae titan, Toots Hibbert, proves a perfect, ebullient fit with a current lineup of the Wailers. The celebrity choices include a conspicuous subset of American folk-rockers in Tracy Chapman, Ben Harper, and Hootie and the Blowfish's Darius Rucker, with Chapman the most convincing in a glowing version of "Three Little Birds."

Avid reggae fans may be mildly frustrated by the overall crossover thrust of this homage, which favors Yankee rap and hip-hop (via Busta Rhymes and Queen Latifah) instead of homegrown dancehall; it tantalizes us with glimpses of Marley's peers, like Cliff and Hibbert, while being largely occupied with sustaining its parade of non-reggae marquee names. For most viewers, though, the scope of the concert and the first-rate sonic finish will sustain the spell, an effect powerfully expanded on the superb DVD version. --Sam Sutherland

Bob Marley's music speaks for itself. This DVD captures a concert in Jamaica where various artists gathered and performed, to celebrate his music.
And it is good. The video quality is clear, and the sound (mix) is equally crisp. I enjoyed watching the various artists perform Bob Marley's songs. The Reggae is excellent.
But I've got to say, there is something missing, aside from Bob Marley himself. Perhaps my opinion was/is affected by the appearance of RAP music on this celebration of Bob Marley's music. Believe me, I've tried to figure out what it is that appeals to people in regard to RAP, and I can't make a connection, at least not musically. I was enjoying the DVD until Rap appeared, effectively ruining my mood. Call me old fashioned and limited, but the riot cadence of RAP doesn't blend with Marley's music, which I happen to love.
My advice to consumers is to rent this DVD, and then decide whether or not you want to own it.
You may find that listening to Bob Marley himself, is the best.

Format: DVD
I'm generally skeptical about tribute concerts, but this one is quite decent. Superb sound and visual quality, and most of it is true to Bob's spirit. The performances vary. I thought the worst by far were the two songs with Chrissie Hynde. I love her from days past, but her movements looked ridiculously forced on stage and musically she just didn't do justice to Bob's genius. I don't follow Lauryn Hill, but I thought she was fabulous, both solo in "Turn the Lights Down Low" and when she teamed up with Ziggy on "Redemption Song." What a voice and stage presence! Chris Robinson sang an incredibly rousing and soulful version of "Kinky Reggae" with Damian Marley. It's always a pleasure to watch another reggae legend, Jimmy Cliff, on stage. He's more subdued than his "Harder They Come" days, but his performance of "No Woman No Cry" with Erykah Badu was very moving, a great tribute to one of Bob's finest songs. Other numbers are mixed, but overall compelling. We can all be grateful that so many of Bob's children took up the torch to continue his musical legacy. I agree with one reviewer that the very talented Ky-Mani Marley should have been included in one of the feature tracks; he only shows up in bonus tracks.

I initially took this DVD out at my local library, and after watching it a couple of times, decided I had to buy it. A nice addition to my Marley collection.

May 11, 2001 marks the 20th anniversary of Bob Marley's death yet it seems like only yesterday as these artists keep the memory of Bob Marley alive. The Rap improvizations get a little tiresome and I have to say sometimes "Bob Marley didn't write that part". Ziggy Marley is in top top form and for that reason I rate it 5 stars rather than 3 or 4. I also really liked Tracy Chapman's performances as it looks like she is really enjoying herself and she has a great voice. Ben Harper does a nice version of Get Up, Stand Up and Darius Rucker belts out a spirited version of War. The bonus features make it well worth the price.

This DVD is a "must have" for all serious home theatre enthusiasts that enjoy reggae music. The Dolby 5.1 tracks are fantastic, I have never seen any concert DVD production this good, I dont believe actually being at the concert would have given you a better experience than what this DVD has to offer in the comfort of your home. The video production is simply "in your face awesome".

Since Michael Peters is a Jamaican, I would expect him to know that Lauryn Hill has every right to be a part of the Bob Marley tribute, CONSIDERING SHE IS MARRIED TO ROJAN MARLEY. She has given birth to Bob's gandson, Zion. Before you insult someone, at least make sure you have the correct information.

[....] Having been an avid Marley fan since my teens (I'm now well into my forties), it was with a sense of trepidation that I slotted the tape into the player, on returning to Norway. Oh, what joy, the musicians were really tight and fiery, most of the singers gave spirited, if not letter-perfect renditions of some of my all-time favourite songs, regardless of genre. Sure, I could nitpick and say that it should have been an all-Jamaican affair, or failing that, an all "Third-World" affair (That's one gripe: Why no Africans?), but that's probably to do with who's available at that particular point in time. Also, I find the inclusion of some artists questionable, but I'd rather focus on the highs: Jimmy Cliff, Erykah Badu, Ziggy, The I-Threes, Tracy Chapman, Busta Rhymes, Latifah - and the list goes on.... The ultimate proof for me was when I showed it to my fourteen year old music students - and remember- this is ice-cold Norway we're talking about, were raving about it, and when we rounded off the course in African-American music with an all-in playing session, they attacked the "Rivers of Babylon" with gusto, if not finesse. As I write , it's been more than twenty years since you passed, Bob, but you still can warm up our frozen, Arctic hearts. Eilert Ottem

Format: DVD
I work at the Guitar Center in New Orleans and we have been playing this DVD on stage for our customers but I often times find myself as an employee there, dancing and moving and singing along. The video is moving in so many ways. I actually sat down on the stage and tears welled up in my eyes after watching the video. As a person who grew up on Southern Rock, I found a passion for Bob Marley's music and lyrics and found them to be extremely moving and compelling so watching this brought back my old memories of him. I hope everyone enjoys this DVD as much as I can and if not, what the hell... enjoy it your way and always remember to "Smile MON!"
