LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 18

In the mold of so many large labels during the 70s, Island attempted to capitalize on Marley's popularity and the trend of the day by issuing a double live album. If the Wailers weren't such a powerful live act, this would have been totally unjustified trend hopping, but as with the earlier Live LP from 1975, this set offers up several excellent renditions of numbers like "Exodus", "Stir It Up", "Rat Race", "Concrete Jungle", "Lively Up Yourself" and "Is This Love", plus 7 more.

Dynamic (Jamaica), 1972. Very Good+
A little bit of crossover from Jamaica with some amusing covers done in a subdued reggae style.
