Newly Discovered Tapes of Bob Marley & The Wailers Live Concerts have been Unearthed in a London Basement
Four days after Bob Marley's 72nd birthday, tapes of shows he performed in England from 1975-1978 that had previously been unearthed have finished being cleaned up after a year of painstaking work to save the original sound.
These reels have been lying in a dank London basement for forty years and have finally been cleaned up and saved after a year of tireless effort. Thirteen reel-to-reel tapes were found in the basement of the hotel that the band stayed in during their European tours have all the classics and have been described as,"spine-tingling". The tapes were all water damaged, seemingly beyond repair, but using today's restoration techniques and lots of loving care, the tapes known as the,"Lost Masters", now have given up their treasure trove of Marley shows from The Lyceum in 75', the Hammersmith Odeon in 76', the Rainbow from 77', and the Pavilion de Paris from 1978. Marley fans will recognize the Rainbow as the venue that the incredible BMW Live show took place at when the original Wailers were still together.© 2017 Grateful Music LLC
