Marley, Bob - Live Forever
(Island B0014680-02 US-11 EX 600:-)

Serving as the final document of Bob Marley’s exceptional career, Live Forever can only be described as a strange beast. This double-CD set has the entire 90-minute concert given to a capacity audience at Pittsburgh’s Stanley Theatre in September 1980, which would prove to be the reggae icon’s last-ever performance. It was undertaken a mere three days after Marley’s terrible collapse in Central Park, precipitated by the cancer that was killing him, which brought a clear diagnosis that his days were truly numbered, and when listening to the concert in retrospect, a sense of confused anguish seems to linger in the wings.

It is highly unusual for a Marley release to yield sorrow as its primary reaction. The Wailers’ stage performances were joyous affairs, awesome in their displays of musical mastery, and for the forceful offerings of creativity and spirituality that Marley served up in equal measure. However, the unfortunate truth of Live Forever is that most listeners will be saddened by its contents, with a clearly exhausted Marley struggling to hold things together.

Box set exclusive: The full concert on three 180-gram audiophile LP's.

Super Deluxe packaging includes photos from this historic night plus reproduction of the rare UPRISING tour program. Housed in a 12 x 12 book.
