The Legend Lives On: Bob Marley DVD+CD Due November 2016!

Image title

Due out in November, ‘The Legend Live’ is an exciting two disc set comprising the original DVD of Bob Marley's now legendary concert at the Santa Barbara County Bowl on the 25th of November 1979, plus a CD featuring 18 of the best tracks from the show.


The concert was among the last of the legend's live performances committed to film before his untimely death in May 1981 and features the Tuff Gong in his full pomp, performing 21 of his most popular works. Regarded an equal of the now legendary ‘Live At The Rainbow’ show from 1977, the Santa Barbara performance includes superb versions of such major hits as ‘I Shot The Sheriff’, ‘One Drop’, ‘Exodus’, ‘Jamming’, ‘Is This Love’, ‘Stir It Up’ and the anthemic ‘Get Up Stand Up’.


The concert footage on the DVD runs for approximately 90 minutes, with a number of bonus features, including a 51 minute documentary ‘Prophecies & Messages’, which features fascinating interview footage with the Wailers’ keyboard player, Tyrone Downie.


The CD comprises the very best performances from the night, most of which have never previously been available as audio-only tracks.
