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. (In the die-cut cover, with the printed inner sleeves but missing poster. Die-cut has a small tear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A later effort from Robert Nesta Marley, though nowhere near past his prime.

Second LP from this British reggae band, one of the first of their kind. Matumbi paved the way for groups like Steel Pulse & Aswad, before there really was a native British reggae scene.
