Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Still sounds as fresh today as it did 30 years ago! Bob Marley and the Wailers at their exhilerating best. My favourite Bob album.

Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIVEly up your self Oct. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
I consider this to be one of Bob marley's best cds.The cd starts off with the incredibly moving trenchtown rock.Then you have an excellent rendition of Burnin and Lootin. Them belly full is an incredibly energetic song. Next,is a totally groovin' lively up yourself. no woman no cry is a slow song but has to be considered one of marleys best and this is by far the best version of it.I shot the sheriff and Get up stand up would be without a doubt their best editions also if Peter Tosh was with him.Then you have a fun and fast kinky reggae. this cd shows how much marley loved making this music. I would reccomend this cd to anyone because it is definetly not just for hardcore marley fans like myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars "One Good Thing About Music... July 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
...when it hits, you feel no pain."
From the opening notes of "Trenchtown Rock" to the end of "Get Up, Stand Up" (I do not have the remastered version w/ "Kinky Reggae"), Bob Marley and the Wailers weave a tight infectious groove that must have been amazing to witness live. Recorded in 1975, the band is clearly "into it" and they deliver definitive versions of some of their best-known tunes up to that point.
While short by today's standards, Live! is superior to the more lengthy, but not quite as strong, Babylon by Bus. There is not a weak track in the bunch. "Trenchtown Rock" is a great opener and "No Woman, No Cry" is an absolute show-stopper.
In short, this is a tremendous CD..."so hit me with music..."

4.0 out of 5 stars Lively up yourself May 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

It's live but it's probably his best. That's usually unusual, because live albums reveal nothing new and usually aren't very good jams. Read more
