Bob Marley & The Wailers – April 13th 1979 Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan Rare Recording


Bob Marley & The Wailers

1979.04.13. Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan

This show has the  most clapping I have ever heard during any concert, so I asked a Japanese friend if he could give me some insight.  I talked with Hideki Nakagawa who explained to me that since the Japanese can’t sing along with the songs since they don’t understand English well, they “clap to convey the feelings of us from start to end.”  Hideki also had this to say about this particular show. “I am hearing this show now and it is most amazing show of all Japan shows. The Crowd sing along with No Woman No Cry(Bob brings to sing and start sing) it is magic moment.
Junior said Japanese word at end of Jammin “Okini”.
That means “Thank you” in the words of Osaka Dialect,
usually “Arigato”.”
