Notes

The Wailers do a live in-studio performance for London’s Top Gear Radio Show before performing live for BBC Channel 2’s Old Grey Whistle Test.  They perform “Stir It Up” and “Concrete Jungle” during this set.  This is one of only 2 or 3 times where Bob, Peter, and Bunny are captured on video performing together as The Wailers.

The Wailers were the first reggae act ever featured on the Old Grey Whistle Test.  Author John Masouri recalls the broadcast of this momentous event:

“Bands didn’t need a hit single to get on BBC2’s Old Grey Whistle Test – which immediately distinguished it from BBC1’s chart-based show Top of the Pops – making it the sole showcase for album-oriented acts.  The Wailers were the first reggae act to appear on the program me, which was an event in itself, and their riveting performance would seal the band’s reputation as Jamaica’s most riveting reggae act.  The Wailers mimed to pre-recorded rhythm tracks for the taping with only the vocals live but the live illusion was convincing as Fams rocked back and forth, with Carly riding his kit like a champion jockey, his hands and feet in perpetual motion.”
