Bob Marley - Paris Theatre London 1973

Bob Marley and the Wailers undertook the 'Catch A Fire' tour from April 27th to July 21st 1973, in the UK and then finishing in the USA. The set list varied from show to show on this tour, however this gig captures those songs most frequently performed, and includes both Peter Tosh compositions (Stop That Train and 400 Years). The running order is also fairly typical of the gigs where these songs were performed. This concert was at The BBC's Paris Theatre in London, the line up included Wailers stalwarts Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. The concert lasted just 45 minutes and an additional performance of Jammin' recorded at Pittsburgh in 1980 is included at the end. This then is Bob Marley and the Wailers live at the BBC Paris Theatre, on the 24th May 1973. Set list is: 1. Rastafarian Chant 2. Slave Driver 3. Stop The Train 4. No More Trouble 5. 400 Years 6. Midnight Raver 7. Stir It Up 8. Concrete Jungle 9. Get Up Stand Up 10. Kinky Reggae Re broa

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. Comin
