Album: Bob Marley &the Wailers, Live Forever (Island)
Friday 28 January 2011
Taken from a show in Pittsburgh in September 1980, Live Forever is the last recorded concert by Marley and The Wailers, but while it represents them at the broadest extent of their appeal, it by no means captures the band at their most potent.
Many would regard the classic early three-pronged attack of Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh as the most exciting incarnation, and compared to their abrasive chemistry, this comes across as a touch complacent, even during the feisty agit-pop anthems "Burnin' and Lootin'" and "Get Up Stand Up", which concludes the show in a call to political arms. But "Redemption Song" is righteously delivered, and
there's no denying the band's locked-groove power on a rolling "Exodus".
