Full Show Friday: Bob Marley 1979 Harvard Stadium Boston, MA

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week..Bob Marley!
This show comes from 1979 and it has a full intro in the video and a Dick Gregory introduction that puts you smack back in that year, lasting until 15:10. This was Bob and company's first show on their 1979 Survival Tour and it took place in early October up in Boston.   

The video comes from a VHS tape, it is pro sound and pro shot, but a bit weathered in this digital age, still great though. The setlist from this show is also a bit different then others on this tour so this is fun experience on this freezing Friday.

Let the "Positive Vibrations" flow with songs like "No More Trouble", "Lively Up Yourself" and my personal favorite Marley tune, "Exodus" which here features Babatunde Olatunji the Nigerian drummer/activist. The rally was a political ones though so songs like "Slave Driver" Wake Up & Live" and "Them Belly Full" with a nice guitar solo, all get featured.

Really cool time capsule show. Enjoy:
