Blue Riddim Band – Alive Jamaica and Restless Spirit Out of Print LP Rips

The Blue Riddim Band – Alive In Jamaica

Blue Riddim became the first American band to play Sunsplash in Jamaica. “We were voted co-‘Best Band’ of the entire festival,” McLane says. “It blew me away that we blew them away. I was expecting pineapples and cantaloupes thrown at us. We’re playing these old songs, and we’re also from America, and we’re also white. It’s five o’clock in the morning, and they’re going, ‘What in the … ?'”

The Jamaica World Music Festival in Montego Bay on Nov 27, 1982 was part of a 3 day event that combined rock, pop, soul and reggae artists. The festival never became the annual event it was hoped to become, but lucky for fans most of the show has become available to collectors.  Some of the other bands that played at the festival included The Clash, The Grateful Dead, Aretha Franklin, The Talking Head, The English Beat, Toots and The Maytals, Rita Marley and The Melody Makers, and the historic and controversial set from Peter Tosh. Here in its complete form is the wicked set from Black Uhuru who were in top form in 1982.  This recording comes from the master tape so it is as good as quality you can get without a studio remaster. I will feature other sets from some of the other artists in future posts. 



Linton Kwesi Johnson w/ Dennis Bovell Dub Band – Sep. 27, 1981 Stockholm, Sweden Full Show

I am a big fan of Linton Kwesi Johnson. His Dread Beat and Blood was one of the most played piece of vinyl on my turntable back in the mid 80’s. This show from Stockholm captures Linton in his prime with the Dennis Bovell Dub Band. It was broadcast on the radio and I give thanks to those document and share rare unreleased roots like this show.

Israel Vibration – Roslyn, In my Father’s House, NY Oct. 10th 1979 Great Pre80’s Live Reggae

Today’s special is one of the oldest recording of the great roots harmony group Israel Vibration. To me I-Vibes are only the original trio, they might still carry on with the name but nothing compares to the beautiful sound the group in their hay-day with the original three members Wise, Apple, and Skully.  Enjoy this rare treat, I think there is only one other Israel Vibration show from 1979 and that is from Sunplash in Jamaica.

Bob Marley & the Wailers: Birthday Countdown Special #3 Live from Hammersmith Odeon, London June 16th 1976

Bob Marley & the Wailers

 

June 16th 1976 Live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London

A very nice recording from the soundboard.  Maybe a tad slow, I don’t mess with pitch control with transferring tapes.  I try to leave history as exact as it was documented. Bob and the Wailers did a run of shows at the Odeon from June 15th thru the 18th.  His mark as the king of reggae was solidified this year with these shows and the ones at the Lyceum show he now had the band in top for and was ready to conquer the world with his messages and positive energy. 

 Setlist:

Trenchtown Rock,

Burnin’ And Lootin’,

Them Belly Full,

Rebel Music,

Crazy Baldheads,

I Shot The Sheriff,

Want More,No More Trouble 

You can right clip and save as each song above, or just left clip to listen. Also

Here is a great article from NME,, thanks to Michael for sending it to me
Bob Marley & the Wailers: Hammersmith Odeon, London
Charles Shaar Murray, NME, 26 June 1976
RIOTS LAST NIGHT they said, marauding hordes of smart, mean kids swarming around getting illegal all over the place with property and the concession stands in the foyer. Not so much heaving the moneylenders out of the temple as ripping off their money, but as an analogy it will suffice.
Like Patti Smith’s Roundhouse set, the Wailers’ show gets things on which don’t happen in the ordinary crappy-old-theatre-with-humorous-acoustics type of environment such as is provided by town councils throughout the land.
The audience, by sheer sleight of spirit, made the rows of seating devices perform the Big Vanish just as they shut the house lights down, transforming Hammersmith Odeon into an environment fit for whoopin’, hollerin’, jumpin’ up and down, dancin’ tight, singin’ along and all kinds of other things that folks do when someone’s blowing clouds of inexorably exhilarating and ineluctably – you should excuse the expression – positive vibrations all over them.
‘Trenchtown Rock’ filled the hall, occupying space and time like a solid object. Down front it was like dancing in the middle of a choir while simultaneously getting a full massage – plus you could watch the band with the I Threes dignifiedly swaying in the breeze and Marley moving fluid behind the centre mike, radiating the strange kind of intensity of presence that a small man can use to dominate a stage.
The band generated what seemed like infinite quantities of energy with virtually no apparent effort; a judoka’s mastery of stress and balance and pressure. Family Man Barrett’s bass was a huge granite Odin humming in the bath and the guitars did almost as much dancing as the audience.
Marley himself was, they tell me, in a state of near exhaustion that night, but even in that state he moved more earth than any of your friendly neighbourhood gentlemen of leisure can do after fifteen hours sleep and half a gram of coke up the nasal cavities. What was so totally overwhelming about the show was not so much “The Music” itself (inasmuch as music can never be considered as something existing separately from the people who produce it and those who listen to it) as the audience, and what got the audience the way they were.
See, these days a lot of dull, brutish music is played dully and brutally and received dully and brutally by audiences grown accustomed to no better. The Wailers’ audience last Wednesday night reacted passionately and joyously to the music, singing and dancing along with it quite spontaneously and unpromptedly, without seeming at all dominated by or subordinate to the performer.
What was happening was quite simple. The audience regarded Marley as their champion and their voice, but not as their master or leader or prophet. They regarded him with admiration and affection, not with the kind of fawning idolatry that greets Bowie or Jagger. Similarly, Marley manifests respect and friendship to the people he plays to, a welcome change from the usual rampant condescension.
Maybe it was once like that in rock and roll: an audience hearing people instead of instruments and a man instead of lyrics, and not wanting or needing to cluster round the back to watch him get into his car after the gig.
