Black Uhuru – Buffalo, NY 9-16-1984 Soundboard Complete Show
A really great recording from the massive Uhuru right before they would split and reform with Jr. Reid in 1985. I really enjoy hearing live version of What is Life and Solidarity.

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”.”
Audience Recording. Fairly Good Quality. One of the lesser circulated dates from the April 1979 tour of Japan. For the more serious collectors that like to have history preserved in its best quality, I have provided lossless FLAC files and for most are MP3 files, just click on the song title to play or left click and save as to download.
