Bob Marley and the Wailers Live at the Rainbow

Amazon.ca

On June 2, 1977, London's Rainbow Theatre "caught fire"--in the best possible way, of course. At the time, Bob Marley and the Wailers, already huge in the UK, were on tour in support of the locally produced Exodus. While the show starts off with the slow-burning "Trenchtown Rock" (1973's African Herbsman), Marley's performance grows increasingly incendiary until, by the time they get to the climactic closer, "Exodus," it looks as he's in another world entirely. The turning point is an extended version of "Crazy Baldhead" (1976's Rastaman Vibration), in which Marley seemingly enters a trance, performing primarily with eyes closed. By the late-1970s, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer were long gone, making the electrifying Marley more the focus than ever before (and for the first few songs, the rest of the band is barely visible). Other highlights includes "Lively Up Yourself" (1974's Natty Dread), in which Julian "Junior" Marvin throws some Hendrix-style moves into the mix, and "Get Up, Stand Up" (1973's Burnin'), in which the audience echoes Marley's words, as lost in the moment as the man on the stage. This two-disc set includes the 1984 BBC documentary Caribbean Nights (AKA The Bob Marley Story). It features performance excerpts ("Slave Driver" from 1972, "Stir It Up" and "Rastaman Chant" from 1973, "Bad Card" from 1980, etc.), and interviews with Tosh, Joe Higgs, Chris Blackwell, Judy Mowatt, wife Rita Marley, and mother Cedella Booker. --Kathleen C.

Back in 1978 I was fortunate enough to have seen the king of reggae perform in a small amphitheatre. When Bob Marley and the Wailers hit the stage the audience knew they were in the presence of very special human being. When you watch this video for the first of a guaranteed many times you will be astounded by the magical charismatic vibe Bob Marley delivered to his audience. This excellent live performance captures the essence of his spiritual being and the dynamic energy he displayed. The accompanying musicians are minus Bunny Livingston and the late great Peter Tosh but have no doubt that this version of the Wailers was more than competent. The backup vocals by the I-Three's, which included his wife Rita Marley are as soulful as it gets. See Bob prance and contort on the stage like a shaman, with his wild dread locks flowing about as he casts his magic on the crowd. the interaction between Bob and the audience is a symbionic delight. Whether it is a down tempo number like "No Woman No Cry" or an exuberant original version of "Jamminng" Bob Marley struts his stuff like a man possessed. He had a message to convey to the world and in his short life of 36 years he achieved immortality and accomplieshed his goal of reaching many people. Twenty years have passed since his death and his music lives on and this live concert captures the vitality of his music. If you have never seen him perform this is a good video to get to see why he was and still is such a favorite throughout the world. See this video for a live performance nearly 25 years old but powered and fresh as a mystic breeze blowing in from Jamaica. Long live the Honorable Robert Nesta Marley!!!

This is one of the greatest recordings EVER made, just happens to be on video AND interpreted by the original, Robert Nesta Marley.

My brother, when he was just 13 and I 15, brought home Babylon By Bus, in to my parents' home, and we played it on my Father's stylus.

Unbelievable. I had my Willowdale, Ontario, Canadian Exhibition Marijuana poster on my wall. But he got it more, mahn.

I'd heard the audio from this for years, then to my amazement in the Downtown Vancouver HMV, there it was. The tracks I'd heard, plus more, captured and presented in digital video.

I wonder what the great mastah Rasta, the great Nyabinghi, would have done in this age of such disillumination since His Death?

We are blessed that this concert was caught on film. Every song is amazing, and both he and the wailers were on that night. My favorite songs on the set are "Rebel Music", "War - No More Trouble", and "The Heathen". But even the other songs on this set are great. Beware because the version of "The Heathen" is amazing and you will rewind it many times to see it again. I can't count how much i've played this in the year i've had it. Hopefully it comes out on DVD with bonus features.

What was I thinking? Why did it take so long for me to add this incredible video to my collection? Bob Marley...the Wailers...the I-Threes...rhythm as strong as any you'll ever hear and a magnificent performance by a totally mesmerizing ambassador of reggae. Do yourself a favor, even if you're just a marginal reggae fan, and invest in "Live At The Rainbow". You won't be sorry.

This is a great DVD of the 1977 concert at The Rainbow in London. Beautifully recorded, and photographed, this is a high-quality production that I would recommend to all fans. This is also a great 'intro' concert for newcomers to the Wailers. Definitely, this is well worth the expense. Excellent interplay between Bob and the band members!

I was lucky enough to have been working at the Rainbow Theatre when this video was shot. The experience has stayed with me ever since. Marley remains the Muhammad Ali of reggae music. Backed by the tightest reggae outfit ever heard every second of this video is pure mesmeric pleasure.
