Bob Marley and the Wailers live in Heidelberg, Germany


Bob Marley and the Wailers live in Heidelberg, Germany

The Exodus Tour began in Paris, France, on May 10, 1977.  The tour ended early in London with 4 shows being performed and 2 cancelled due to the toe injury Bob got during a soccer game in London.  The US part of the tour was also canceled. The last show of the tour has been released, labeled Live! at the Rainbow. It is reported that all four shows have been recorded and taped on video. At least 3 of the Rainbows shows in audio format circulate with Marley collectors one of which is almost instrumental since the vocals are so low in the mix.  Here is one of the rare non-official recordings from the tour. It features rare Photos from Heidelberg courtesy of Peter Sarowy who took these amazing pictures.

Good audience recording.  Too bass heavy but vocals are strong. The first 1977 unofficial Bob Marley show I traded for long ago.
Another standout long version of Heathen and a great Lively Up Yourself. Both those songs are stand-outs during this tour.
