Bob Marley and the Wailers Live at the Quiet Knight, Chicago, 1975

Here, once again, is a re-up of Marley’s greatest recorded concert.  Live at the Quiet Knight, Chicago, June 10, 1975 features the band on the Natty Dread tour through the U.S.  The show is notable for many reasons.  It features former Wailer Lee Jaffe playing harmonica on “Talkin’ Blues” and “Rebel Music (3 O’clock Road Block),” a raucous crowd who feeds Marley enormous energy throughout the show, and an exhausted Marley – voice cracking throughout the show – who grinds through one of the grittiest, grimiest, live performances you will ever hear.

Here is Marley’s performance of “Midnight Ravers” from the show:
