Product Description


When Bob Marley and the Wailers recorded their legendary 1975 London gig, little did they know of its lasting power. From the opening shuffles of "Trenchtown Rock" to the rabble-rousing "Get Up, Stand Up," this brief recording captured Marley's combo of critical invective and languid musical power. The rhythm team of Aston and Carlton Barrett make time-keeping splendidly melodic as Marley's gently scouring voice gets woven in with his backup vocalists in a mellowly dazzling display. On fire, the band jumps into the discovery of its power without regard to keeping the songs tidy or reflective of anything other than the moment of execution. No matter the years between its original release and the present, this recording will always breathe. Between Live! and the later, longer Babylon by Bus, Bob Marley showed categorical know-how in the art of executing state-of-the-art performances in the era of arena rock's supremacy. --Andrew Bartlett

There is something both magic and tragic about live recordings. The magic is that a performance is captured and bottled for future generations to experience. What's tragic, is that those future generations are only offered a small part of the live experience. The pallet is only whetted just enough to make the listener say "I wish I had been there to see it and hear it-to feel it FOR REAL."
Bob Marley and the Wailers Live! is one of the few live albums I've heard that transcends time and is able to deliver everything but the visuals of being at a live Marley performance. According to the recording, Marley and company were one hell of a live act. Every track bounces and grooves. All of the songs are classic live album fare-in that they're long, extended jams of Marley's best hits. Unlike most bands, however, these jams are listenable and welcomed. "No Woman, No Cry" and "Get Up, Stand Up" soar with a sonic majesty most other artists cannot achieve in the studio, let alone live on stage.
Live! takes no time in getting the vibes going, "Trenchtown Rock" opens the set, in it Marley pretty much sets the stage for the rest of the album singing "One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain." Indeed. The lyrics are powerful and yet at the same time very simple. Every word uttered, but Marley or his backup singers, is delivered with much honesty. A healthy mix of songs-love, feeling good, and politics permeate throughout. All the things Marley was (and still is) are represented equally.
Upon the third (or was it the fourth?) listen, I began to more fully appreciate the album's musicianship. The bass is kickin' and the organ hums beautifully. But best yet...the guitars are funky.

One of the remarkable things about the work of the late Mr. Marley is that if you ask people or look at Web and newsgroup reviews and opinions as to which was his best album, there are no definitive anwers.
If you want a collection, then Legend in its latest form might be the one for you, but the 4-disc Songs of Freedom set is a great collection if you can afford it, and One Love may be a better single CD collection than Legend (at least it has 4 more tracks).
Then there are a whole slew of studio albums from the astonishingly productive years of the mid and late seventies, for each of which there is someone to say that this is THE Bob Marley album. (I suspect that people, and this includes myself, as most strongly disposed towards the first Marley album they hear. First love is always the sweetest, I suppose.)
Then there are the live albums, and even there the competition between Live! and Babylon By Bus is intense. Leaving out the consideration that Live! at thirty-odd minutes and seven tracks is a bit short, truth is there is not a lot to choose.
Live! shows Marley and the band on peak form in performance in London, and here you have a nice example of a master performer perfectly in tune with an adoring audience, which at times is singing along en masse, giving a semblance of a soccer match crowd.
There is an especially wonderful and moving rendition of No Woman No Cry, and the other tracks are not shabby either.
All in all a very nice album to own and one I can heartily recommend to Marley fans, though I would not make it my first Marley purchase, and perhaps not even my first Marley live album purchase either, though ultimately these things are a question of personal taste.

Bob Marley and the Wailers were really on that night in London in 1975. Like many great live albums in the pantheon of rock music they were able to find their groove early on and it does not stop until the very end of the album. Bob's singing is as passionate and heartfelt as a blues singer and often times is even more so. His "sisters," the female back-up singers, only enhance the songs because their voices are so beautiful. The guitar and bass playing is, with most reggae, rythmic and melodic and it's impossible to keep from nodding your head or tapping your feet to the beat. The guitar player pulls off some really great solos that once again only enhances the feeling of the song. The organ is rythmic and improves the already incredibly tight sound of the rythm section. It was at this gig that the legendary live recording of "No Woman No Cry" took place. Perhaps even more impressive is "Get up, stand up" which makes you want to start your own revolution against crooked politicians and everything else that is wrong with this world. "Stand up for your right"... that's damn right, Bob. My favourite tracks have to be "Trenchtown Rock," a perfect opening track, "Lively up yourself," "Get up, stand up," and a SWEET song called "Kinky Reggae." The bass playing on that song just makes me wanna cry from joy it is so good. Even though it goes without saying, buy this album as soon as possible. One Love.

Live albums are rarely the top choices in a legendary artist's catalogue. They are usually left on the shelves for diehard fans. For every Allman Brothers at Fillmore East or Band of Gypsys, there are about five live CDs disregarded for better studio albums and one that has never even been issued on CD (and about thirty live offerings from the Grateful Dead) and it is often with good reason. Live albums often feature drippy jam sessions, have poor sound quality and reveal nothing new about the artist. But there are exceptions to the unimportance of live material; times when the band hits some inexplicable groove that just does not come about, isolated in a studio, staring at a soundboard. One is this 1975 LP from reggae legends, Bob Marley and the Wailers. Marley's socially conscious pleas fervently ride an intoxicating wave of crunchy beats and gorgeous back-up vocals. One can almost see the beads of sweat flying off Marley's face when he sings his finest mantra, "Get Up, Stand Up." Other selections such as "Lively Up Yourself" and "Trenchtown Rock" equal its heights of passion, while "Burnin' and Lootin," and "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)" sink into a hypnotizing, mellow wave. Unlike many other live performances, all songs are captured in clear, crisp almost studio quality sound and never outstay their welcome. Marley neophytes traditionally choose the greatest hits collection, Legend, as a starting point. It is a fine disc, but if you truly desire Bob Marley and the Wailers captured at their best, Live! is a must buy.
