Reggae Sunsplash 1979 Soundboard Recordings

Today I leave you with several recordings from Bob Marley and the Wailers‘ performance at Reggae Sunsplash II, held at Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, Jamaica July 7, 1979.  The first set of recordings consists of seven excellent soundboard recordings.  While the audio for these recordings is excellent, a couple of the songs are incomplete.  However, they are still worth a listen, and are heads and shoulders above any audience or audience/soundboard matrix circulating.
The last two recordings are the Wailers’ entire set recorded from several sources, including audience 1 and 2 and audience and soundboard.  Well worth a listen.  I have included the band line-up and set list as well.

I hope to have a new artist profile ready for publication next week.  Until then, enjoy these recordings!
