Musical palate cleanser, rasta, mon, edition

From Bob Marley’s website:

In 1973 Bob Marley and the Wailers found themselves stranded on the West Coast of the United States after being asked to leave the Sly & The Family Stone tour for outperforming them every night. To make the best of the situation the band made their way to Los Angeles

The scene is Hollywood. Bob Marley and The Wailers were filmed in a closed door session at The Capitol Records Tower on October 24 by famed producer Denny Cordell, who received the blessing from Marley to capture the band recording 12 songs. Shooting with four cameras and mixing “on the fly” to a colorized tape, this footage, has been painstakingly restored, resulting in an incredible presentation of this unseen live session.

I just got this, so I haven’t watched the DVD yet, but the CD is terrific from an audio and musical standpoint.  Here’s “Stir It Up”, one of my favorites of his:

    They did another recording later that week at The Record Planet – 10/31/1973 in Sausalito that is one of my favorite recordings ever. I look forward to checking this one out! Thanks SB!

    In Amsterdam on business next to Ajax stadium last week…popped in Ajax team store…their away team kit is bob marley inspired with black jerseys and shorts with yellow red and green Adidas stripes on the uniform. The slogan in the store was the Rastafarian kit.
    The Dutch are uptight and a pain in the ass to deal with for bidness but they are on a different level when the business lights are turned off and the social lights come on.
    They play “three little birds” by bob marley at every home game. It is very cool.

    The video is amazing. Sounds like they mixed out the bass line, unfortunately.

    Johnny Nash had the hit with “Stir It UP”, but I like Bob’s better.

    The Catch A Fire album is excellent.

    I’m here in Rastaland. Antigua.
    Not a huge fan of reggae, but I am a fan of rum. The only problem? The butler made sure I had a bottle of JWB in the room…
    Between the fruity “Welcome to the resort” drinks and the JWB I took a power nap on the deck….
    The fucking no-see-ums tried to tote my ass off. I look like a kid with impetigo
