For Bob Marley fans, it’s time to get up, stand up … and run to the nearest indie theater. Magnolia Pictures announced today they have acquired U.S. rights to Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald‘s long-in-development Bob Marley documentary Marley, described as the definitive documentary about the legendary musician, from his earliest days to his rise to international superstardom.

Marley is executive-produced by Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley, and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. Made with the unprecedented support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, archival photos, and incredible performances and interviews with his family, friends and bandmates.

Documentary distribution maestros Magnolia Pictures will release the film theatrically and on VOD April 20, and some time later VH1 will premiere the film on television as part of its Rock Doc series.

“This documentary is the ultimate revelation of my father’s life … The family is proud to be able to have the world finally experience this emotional journey,” said Ziggy Marley in a statement.

Bob Marley and the Wailers – Birthday Countdown #2 Live from The Rainbow Alternative Night

Bob Marley and the Wailers

Rainbow Theatre, London, England

June 2nd, 1977  (rare unreleased date)



Two of Bob Marley’s most famous live shows were performed in London. The 1975 shows from the Lyceum used to make the “Live” release and the

June 4th 1977 show from the Rainbow used for the “Live at the Rainbow” release. Here is a rare recording from a different night in the historic run of shows at the Lyceum.


This show is almost a instrumental only set. Bob’s vocals are so low in the mix you can’t really hear him.

* the SBD version sounds good, but the vocals are almost turned off, so it’s almost only instrumental.
* rare 1977 performance of “Concrete Jungle”.
* the date is not confirmed, but the show usually circulates by this date.
* the show was most likely filmed on video, as probably were all Rainbow 1977 dates.


burnin’ and lootin’ with intro.

Below is an article by Vivien Goldman from Sounds June 11th, 1977 with her account of one of the nights in this historic run at the Rainbow



11 June 1977
Bob Marley & The Wailers: Rainbow Theatre, London
Vivien Goldman, Sounds, 11 June 1977
THE TENSION in the Rainbow was almost painful, the only relief the appearance of the Wallers.
And the curtain rises on a scene of splendour: two columns on either side of the stage soar the full height of the Rainbow, lions rampant on each one. The backdrop, painted by Tony Wright, is more atmospheric than I’d imagined it could be, warm reds and golds evoking Kingston at night, palms etched behind shantytown, lights blur in the distance.
It’s the first time the band’s played an Exodus-based set, (the European dates featured a range of classics) and there are a couple of loose edges in key and tempo. But any slight roughness is over-shadowed by the passion of Bob’s singing.
Tonight is a crucial night, the first presentation of his new material to the capital of reggae outside Jamaica itself. Each song builds and builds to heights of concentrated power. As ‘Natural Mystic’ opens the set, a tide of pure, high energy sings through the theatre.
It’s so satisfying, watching the Wailers. I love the way Family Man plays bass, planted firm, like a tree growing from sturdy roots – just the stolid set of his shoulders shouts that he’ll never give up the fight. Carly drums in crisp clockwork chops, every limb alert. Seeco calmly shifts through percussion parts, always adding oblique, unexpected emphasis. New guitarist Junior Marvin delights in showmanship, tantalising the audience with wheeling seagull swoops at his guitar, dancing vigorously back and forth, while Tyrone behind the banked keyboards bobs in smiling counterpoint. The I Three dip and sway, looking very exotic tonight in off-theshoulder white-ruffles, red gold and green turbans imperiously swathing their heads.

‘So Much Thing To Say’, merges into ‘Guiltiness’, my favourite track on the album, a disturbingly precise blend of remorselessness towards the guilty and remorse at the very existence of the downpressor… Bob shudders with passion while he sings, emotion squeezes through his voice as wine squeezes from grapes.
One of my favourite moments of the set is ‘Rastaman Vibration’, with a new keyboards part from Tyrone, a subtle alteration in the pulse that delicately flings the song into a new light. Tyrone stuns now, and Seeco performs amazing rhythm runs that flicker round the Carly/Famlly Man unit in a quicksilver outline. Positive.’No Woman No Cry’ moves you. It has to be that way.
‘Lively Up Yourself’ suddenly swirls into a new near-Latin texture, just like the title suggests, it shakes the audience into a more physical mood – revitalises the veins, brightens the bones, and boosts the blood. ‘Jamming’ is exuberant: exultant: joyous, again, just as it should be. Somewhere around that time, Junior delivered some sparse and bouncily imaginative guitar breaks, provocative and visual, and received extravagantly enthusiastic applause (Birth Of New Guitar Hero?)
Of course, there has to be an encore. ‘Get Up Stand Up’ is so perfect it seems unavoidable. That’s when Family Man’s bass seemed to roar, after a night of solid rumbling thunder. Now it’s an army of marching feet again, an imperturable onslaught on your whole body, battering you into submission. I discover that when my head droops in a parallel line to the floor, the bass bounces upwards and directly through the frontal lobes, controlling the pulse-rate, I’m certain, and the heart beat.

Again, there’s a classic inevitably to ‘Exodus’ as an encore. It’s so powerful, it grabs your soul and squeezes. Difficult to follow. Certainly at this point in time, when the song seems to tug just under the surface of Bob’s skin.Then the song gushes out from so deep inside him it hurts. For once, his eyes stare wide open, he’s in a transcendental state, anguish firing his wiry super-fit blue-denim’d body to a new stature. He grows before your eyes, and his voice swells and swells and swells, sounds as if they’re turning his vocals up so high, adding echoes and echoes till the board must explode.
Or maybe his voice is simply growing louder and louder till it threatens to vibrate the bolts fixing the roof to the building, the way Ella Fitzgerald’s voice shatters glass on the Memorex ads, and the roof will simply rise heavenwards on a bubbling hot geyser of Bob’s voice, pulsing it higher and higher each time he shouts MOVE. “We’re leaving Babylon,” he stresses ardently, “going to our FATHERS’ LAND”. Tyrone’s voicebox twists mysteriously round Bob’s singing.
And then it’s “We the generation, tried through great tribulation” over and over, round and round. Each time the anguish of the lament deepens, till it’s a cry against all wrong in the world, from the abundance of thievery going on in the audience even while he’s singing so passionately and explicitly of everything that’s right and true, to every other bitter idiocy that’s perpetrated on this planet. Higher and higher.

Alton Ellis The Godfather of Rocksteady


Get Ready To Rock Steady

Many consider Alton the greatest Jamaican singer, and in Jamaica his voice is  even bigger than Bob Marley. Dennis Alcapone had this to say about Alton. “Alton was a bigger artist in Jamaica than Bob Marley. Everybody, even Bob, would love if he could sing like Alton Ellis. All of them would sit back and listen to Alton because Alton was the king.” His soulful voice spanned all genres of Jamaican Music from Ska, to Rocksteady , and Reggae as  Alton helped lay the foundation for Jamaican Music.

Alton Ellis came from Trenchtown, the same part of Kingston that was home to stars like Bob Marley. He and  his younger sister Hortense got their start as kids competing on Kingston talent shows like “Vere John’s Opportunity Hour.” In 1959, as half of the duo Alton & Eddie, he recorded the R&B-style scorcher “Muriel,” which became one of the first hit records for the pioneering local producer Clement Dodd.

Alton had many hits with Coxsone and also Duke Reid like  “Girl I’ve Got A Date,” “I’m Just a Guy” and his 1966 classic “Get Ready Rock Steady,” that ushered in a whole new style of music called Rock Steady. It is said that when the track was recorded Jackie Mitto had to fill in for the regular bass player and since that was not his regular instrument he had trouble keeping up with the fast ska beat, so he elected to slow down the tempo. Alton had several other major successes in 1966, including “Cry Tough” and the smash “Girl I’ve Got a Date,” the latter of which became his biggest hit and signature song.


Rock steady had  a mellower, slower more soulful sound that formed the bridge between the hard-driving brass of ska and  reggae. It was perfect for Altons sweet tenor voice.“Alton ruled the rock steady era,” Mr. Alcapone said. But Mr. Ellis’s influence did not stop there.

In 1969 his track “Get Ready Rock Steady” was used for “Wake the Town,” featuring DJ U-Roy which started the DJ revolution with it massive popularity. The instrumental track to Alton’s  composition “Mad Mad” became one of the most covered recordings in reggae history, and his 1967 composition “I’m Still in Love With You” was covered several times, most recently by the dancehall artists Sean Paul and Sasha, reaching No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot Singles chart in 2004.


Having been so ripped of by Jamaican producers, Alton moved to Canada then to England where he created his own Alltone label. He was also awarded Jamaica’s Order of Distinction in 1994 and was inducted into the International Reggae and World Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

A real pioneer of Jamaican Music and Hailed as the King Of Rock Steady, Alton may have been eclipsed by Marley and Reggae but to many he is truly greatest singer to come from Jamaica.

 Here is a very rare live clip of Alton Ellis.


Bob Marley And The Wailers, Not A Quiet Night in Chicago 1975

Many Bob Marley concerts circulate in trade circles with collectors, hardcore fans, and archivists, and of all those shows one of the best that has never been officially released is this epic show from the Quiet Knight in Chicago 1975.  It was on June 10th 1975 that Bob Marley And The Wailers performed their second of 2 nights at the Quiet Knight Club.

The Quiet Knight is now a hair salon.  It’s hard to believe the list of bands that played there, not only Bob Marley but Tom Waits, R.E.M., Prince, Run D.M.C., The Cramps, Bauhaus, The Stray Cats, Psychedelic Furs. The first Smashing Pumpkins show was there. And before then it was a mainstay for Chicago Blues with many blues legends playing there.  The Rolling Stones even showed up there after one of their shows to jam with Muddy Waters.

For me this show has been a treasured piece of history I have been enjoying for 3 decades now. Not only a wicked performance with Bob chanting back and forth with the crowd, but one of the best recordings in sound quality.  So good Starbucks did release a CD called Live 1973-1975 that contains Trenchtown Rock and Natty Dread. Those are omitted here do to being officially released. One of the most notable parts of the show is Bob doing the band introductions and really getting into it during I Shot The Sheriff.  Also the famous guy yelling from the crowd during Natty Dread is actually cool and enhances the feeling of being at a Bob live show.  Below are notes from Bob Marley

Kevin MacDonald’s Bob Marley Film “Marley” Will World Premiere Next Month – Finally

Kevin MacDonald’s long anticipated Bob Marley Film Will World Premiere At The 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.

Titled “Marley” and set for its world premiere in February 2012 in Berlin, the film will examine “the life, legacy and global impact of a true legend,” said in a  statement from the producers, Tuff Gong Pictures, Shangri-La Entertainment and Cowboy Films. It will look at the life  Bob Marley by interviewing many of the figures in and around him as well as using rare archival material.  MacDonald (Touching the Void and The Last King of Scotland)  ended up directing the film after Jonathan Demme and Martin Scorsese failed to get it finished.  There is also a film by Esther Anderson and Gian Godoy that is showing at film festival currently called “Bob Marley: The Making Of A Legend”. I have been privileged to view rare collectors versions of some of Esther’s footage and I will do an in depth article on her movie in a future post.

MacDonald’s film is most anticipate especially to long time collectors of Marley material as it has permission to include rare material and  has been given unprecedented access to the Marley family’s private archives.  Supposedly the first time they have granted this access to a film maker.  Most documentaries on Marley in the last decade or more have used much of the same footage.  Hardcore fans are eagerly awaiting some fresh never before seen footage (myself included).  Hopefully this movie will finally do justice to the life of one of the biggest most influential figures in popular music.

From Bob

Ziggy says, ” Saw a rough version of new Bob Marley documentary, Marley, with director, Kevin MacDonald.  It is a very emotional. This is the most personal Bob film any one will ever see. You will cry and smile.  Kevin MacDonald directed “The Last King of Scotland” among others. He’s very good.  I am one of the producers, it is being done as a joint production between Shangrila Pictures and Tuff Gong Pictures. Tuff Gong is our family’s company, started by our father.  I hope it will be in theatres everywhere, it all depends if they want it. I am sure it will be in theatres not sure if everywhere. I hope so though. Jah willing.”

Peter Tosh – Rebel with a Cause, Reggae’s unsung Revolutionary.

Peter Tosh  – Rebel with a Cause, Reggae’s unsung Revolutionary.


To mention Peter Tosh in the same circle as Malcolm X, Che Guevara, or Nelson Mandela is not uncommon. Peter was a true revolutionary, activist, and a rebel witha cause.  To wake up peoples slumbering mentality as he would put it, toshake up the system with Truths and Rights, Peter Tosh was like no other rebel.  He used the power of reggae music to spread his messages.  Never underestimate the power of music.  His stance on the Legalization of Marijuana lead to him being beaten numerous times, but he  was not afraid to speak his mind and Get Up Stand Up for his and our rights.

In recent years many have wondered why someone who gave so much seem almost forgotten. As an original member of the Wailing Wailers (The Wailers & Bob Marley and the Wailers) Peter was an original driving force in Jamaican Music in the late 60’s, and onward tell his tragic death in 1987.  He, Bob Marley, and Bunny Wailer helpedbring reggae music to the world and influencing many worldwide to learn more about Rastafari and their African Heritage. Peter was the only Wailer who could play an instrument and is know to have taught Bob how to play.  He wrote and arranged manyof The Wailers early songs. In 1973, he left the group for a solo career and went onto create historic LP’s like Legalize It and Equal Rights.


Though perennially overshadowed by Marley, Peter’s militant style and views on life often appealed to many more than Marley’s more loveable friendly personality.  “In places like Africa, Peter is an even more respected star than Bob because of his militancy,” says reggae archivist Roger Steffens. “He was almost beaten to death on several occasions by Jamaican police because of his anti-establishment views. He didn’t just talk the talk, he walked the walk — and people respect that all over the word.”


Peter was a amazing person who not only influenced Jamaican musical history but through his music, words, and philosophy have impacted millions worldwide. I love Peters out-spoken militant personality that refused to be scared to speak his mind especially when it involved Truths and Rights and the Legalization of Herb.  Legalize It is more than an anthem, it is a whole Movement world-wide.  If still alive today, I know he would be at the forefront of the battle to Legalize It!  Peter’s music and messages have been a inspiration to myself and others and will continue to be for many generations.  People will always need to Get Up, Stand Up for their rights and Peter should be recognized for his contributions to the world just as  much as Bob Marley or any other freedom fighter that has received large media attention.  A true Rebel speaking for Equal Rights and Justice.

Burning Spear – The Marcus Garvey Teacher

Burning Spear


The African Teacher, The Marcus Garvey Preacher, The Man From The Hills

Burning Spears importance on my life and musical journey can’t really be put in words.  Unlike The Wailers with Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Bob Marley, Winston Rodneys music has taken me on a more spiritual meditative vibration.  Burning Spear is more than just a reggae artist, he is a cultural icon that has keep reggae music strong and conscious for almost 40 years. There is nothing like a Burning Spear concert. A powerful performer with an uncompromising sound that has a sometimes almost jazz-like abstration.  I have attended over 20 and some Spear fans are almost as livicated to following Burning Spear on tour as Grateful Dead fans were.  Winston’s energy and his top notch musicians always make for great live concerts.  A spiritual vibration, hypnotic and healing.  Go see the Spear live if you get a chance, it will heal the soul and energize the body.  Here you can enjoy tracks from many rare unreleased live shows.

Burning Spear: Marcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost

My Burning Spear Tribute Page with the largest gallery of Spear photos, plus rare unreleased live tracks.

From Burning Spears website

A music-maker, community icon, educator, spiritual up-lifter; Burning Spear’s importance to culture existed before media spotlight, and has only grown since.

For nearly four decades and more than 25 albums, he has carried the torch of the gospel of political activist Marcus Garvey, promoting self-determination and self-reliance for African descendants through lyrics and rhythms that truly deliver the messages of peace and love to all.

Not surprisingly, Burning Spear’s path in music began with a fateful encounter with Bob Marley. Both were living in the St. Ann’s parish of Jamaica. As Spear (born Winston Rodney) recalls, “The way the whole thing came about is that I found myself moving along up in the hills of St. Ann’s and I ran into Bob at the same time. And Bob was going to his farm. The man was moving with a donkey and some buckets and a fork, and cutlass and plants. We just reason man-to-man and I-man say wherein I would like to get involved in the music business. And Bob say, ‘All right, just check Studio One.”‘ It was there Spear recording his first two classic albums, Burning Spear and Rocking Time.

Bob Marley and The Wailers Beacon Th. New York City 1976

Beacon 1976

Bob Marley and The Wailers Beacon Th. New York City ,NY 1976

Bob Marley and the Wailers performed 2 shows per night on April 30th, and May 1st 1976 AT The Beacon Th. in New York City. Below are tracks and pictures from that historic 2 nights.

The tour began at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, on April 23, 1976, and ended in Manchester, England, on June 27, 1976. On the tour’s second leg Marley performed for the first time in continental Europe and premiered in Germany, Sweden, France and the Netherlands. After the tour Marley performed the Smile Jamaica Concert in his homeland Jamaica, after being shot a couple of days before. The album Live At the Roxy was recorded during this tour, on May 26.

These 4 sets from the Beacon Theater shows.Bob and his band in top form. They contain rare live performances of “Johnny Was” and “Night Shift” on May 1st was first show with the “Get Up, Stand Up”/”War”/”No More Trouble” medley

At the beginning of the tour, for example during the four shows at the Beacon Theater when Marley experimented and changed the setlist much more than later during the tour, a gospel-like medley of two Nyabinghi chants (“Rastaman Chant” and “Lion Of Judah”) and a brief reggae riff (“Keep The Faith”) had been performed at the beginning instead of “Trenchtown Rock”. Since the Nyabinghi chants were very meditative and slow until it segued into the lively reggae riff, it was decided to replace the long medley by the classic and instantly-lively “Trenchtown Rock” to better catch the audience from the beginning, as seen during the Natty Dread Tour in 1975 where “Trenchtown Rock” was the opening song as well

Now all can experience these shows on Bob Marley HERE
