Notes And Information About The Release
The first release from JahMon's secret Marley treasure
Bob Marley and the Wailers
LIVE at the Wonder Dream Concert, Kingston JA, October 4,
This concert is one of the oddest and greatest moments in
all reggae history. The occasion was the visit to Jamaica of
the king of black music in the 70's -- Stevie Wonder. The
venue was the National Heroes Stadium in Kingston Jamaica.
The warm up band was to be Bob Marley and the Wailers. But not the current 1975 Wailers!
The Wailing Wailers -- Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny
Wailer -- together live onstage for the first time in two
years and the last time together forever.
The first four tracks are classic old Wailers sung by Bob.
The next two, classics retold by Bunny. The next three are
Toshes post-Wailers hits. Then some end-of-Wailers and
post-Wailers Bob tunes.
And in the oddest tune of all: the poorly played version of
I Shot the Sheriff is because it is Stevie Wonder's
excellent band trying to play reggae like the Wailer's. The
unrehearsed quality of it shows.
What is missing from this show is a version of Bob and
Stevie doing a duet of Superstition. Also, the Wailer's set
is missing the obvious closer of Get Up Stand Up.
Sound quality is acceotable but not great.
