Bob Marley - The Final Concert

I did not realise just how long ago Bob Marley passed away, until preparing this piece.

Probably because some of his music is still often heard playing, either on the radio or TV, and the fact that time does indeed seem to fly by ever faster, whatever the case, sadly aged just 36, he passed on in 1981.

Bob Marley played his final concert at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA, on September 23rd, 1980. The live version of 'Redemption Song' on 'Songs of Freedom' was recorded at this show.

Afterwards he sought medical help from Munich specialist Josef Issels however sadly his illness was beyond cure at this stage.

Songs performed are as follows:

01. Natural Mystic
02. Positive Vibration
03. Burnin' & Lootin'
04. Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)
05. The Heathen
06. Running Away
07. Crazy Baldhead
08. War No More Trouble
09. Zimbabwe
10. Zion Train
11. No Woman No Cry
12. Jammin'
13. Exodus
14. Redemption Song
15. Coming In From the Cold
16. Could You Be Loved
17. Is This Love

This is a tremendous concert full of the vibrant sound I associate with Bob Marley. The sound quality is very good stereo soundboard (there is some level and tone adjustment during the first song - after that it is really good).

So enjoy this!
