BOB MARLEY – "WAR" (Live) | EASY SKANKING IN BOSTON '78
In celebration of the 70th Earthstrong of Tuff Gong, the Marley family has opened up their personal vault to the fans and released a brand new, never-before-seen live concert video titled ‘Easy Skanking In Boston’. The show was held at Boston’s Music Hall during the 1978 Kaya Tour, and was filmed by a single cameraman whom Bob allowed to shoot from the front row. It’s some of Marley’s most energetic footage to date, and really gives a unique look into his live performances, making fans feel like they’re actually there watching the show from up close.
A must have for any true Marley fan, thanks to the Marley family opening up their private vaults, this amazing and historical never-before-seen live concert video from Boston’s Music Hall during the 1978 Kaya tour is available today worldwide!
The Wailers play the Matrix, a small club on Fillmore Street in the Marina District in San Francisco on October 19, 20, 29, and 30. This is where they first make their mark in the US. Slade and the J. Geils Band were hosting capacity crowds at the Winterland on October 30, 1973, however, both bands cut their shows short to rush over to The Matrix to catch the hottest show in town. Also in attendance were actress Faye Dunaway and musician Boz Scaggs.
