Synopsis by Jackie Turner-Robinson
This interview was allegedly recorded in spring of 1981, approximately three weeks before Bob Marley's death, although some claim it was actually recorded during the "Survival" tour when it stopped at UCLA in 1979. In either case, the interview offers an in-depth look at the inspirations of the legendary songwriter and musician, accompanied by members of the Wailers. Topics discussed include the Rastafarian movement and divine inspiration, the affect of social and political situations on his songwriting, and music as an agent for social change.
