Notes

Review of the show, written by J. Greg Robertson and published in the Hartford Courant on June 23, 1975.  On June 6, 1975, reggae legend Bob Marley brought the mighty Wailers to the Bushnell Memorial, as part of his Natty Dread Tour. The Sunday night show wasn’t well attended, according to Courant reviewer J. Greg Robertson, who blamed the lack of adequate notice (one flier read “Bob Morley and the Whalers,” which surely attracted a number of hockey fans). Those who attended were treated to Marley’s exceptional live show, “an hour and a half of reggae at its best,” Robertson wrote. “[Marley’s] impassioned performance of ‘I Shot The Sheriff’ made Eric Clapton’s best selling version pale in comparison.”  Thanks to the folks at midnightraverblog.com for the article.
