Synopsis by Mark Deming
More than any other artist in reggae music, Bob Marley took the music from its former status as a regional Jamaican phenomenon and transformed it into a sound and style that has truly captured the attention of the world. A superb singer, songwriter, and musician, Marley was also a mesmerizing live performer, and this video captures Marley and his band the Wailers on stage at the height of their powers in 1977, shortly after the release of the album Exodus. The 13-song set includes "No Woman No Cry," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Lively Up Yourself," "Jamming," and "Get up, Stand Up."
