Notes

By the time the Wailers reach Hawthorn Hall at Leicester Polytechnic, they were the talk of London among rock’s devotees. At this show, Chris Blackwell is on hand giving out promotional copies of Zippo lighter-themed Catch-A-Fire LP.  Members of YES’s road crew are on hand to take the load off of the Wailers and ticket prices outside the venue hit a preposterous 50 pounds! A small price to pay to witness rock ‘n roll history in the making.
Of their performance at Leicester University, a writer for the Leicester Mercury wrote of the Wailers:

“The powerhouse of the band is Charlie (sp) Barrett, whose fill-ins were nothing short of miraculous and bass Aston Barrett, who delivered the goods with a perfect economy of action – holding back on the off-beat and thereby doubling the impact, And over it all there was the clean crisp dampened chords of the two guitarists – giving the overall sound its distinctive rhythm. Where the Wailers score over most reggae bands is in their imaginative use of soul-type harmonizing with Marley taking the lead vocals and the other members answering in the classic gospel oriented-call and response style.”
