The documentary that originally aired on the Entertainment Channel under the name "The Bob Marley story", then oddly "Caribbean night" is one of my favorites. It's too bad that they edited out the Bunny Wailer interview featured in the original version for contract/money issues. I'm not sure if they made their way back on this DVD as I am reviewing this from my knowlegde of the VHS tapes.
If you were craving something "fresh" from Bob Marley, here it is?
This is an excellent (and economical) 2-DVD set. Disc 1 is Marley live at the Rainbow (London) in June 1977. A MUST for Bob fans. Check out his dancing throughout and spinning like a top onstange during "Exodus" and his prophet-like stance through much of the proceedings. Mostly tunes from "Exodus" and "Natty Dread." Powerful.
Disc 2 is "Carribean Nights.' Early cable fans will recognize this as "The Bob Marley Story" which used to air a lot on A&E and "USA's Night Flight" (of sainted memory) in the late 80s and early 90s. Lots of REALLY rare footage that did not appear on television when it was orginally aired. We see Bob's pal Jimmy Cliff performing a ska set while very young in the early 60's, unedited interviews with Bob's mom, Peter Tosh, and Rita, and Bob performing at the Zimbabwe independence celebration in 1980.
There are also some really interesting interviews. A Canadian interviewer gets downright rude with Bob, asking him "Don't you think that most conservative people would think that you look strange?" (remember, dreadlocks were rarely seen outside of Jamaica during the 70s). I won't spoil it by telling Bob's answer, but let's just say our reporter friend had met her match.
But enough of this, just SEE it!
