Forty years ago this year, Island released Bob Marley’s landmark album Live!. The album, which includes live tracks from his performance at London’s Lyceum Theatre, captured the energy and essence of that amazing performance like few live albums have. The forthcoming Universal/Island release Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 is a tremendous live recording and Marley’s best live album since 1975.
