“The Natty Dread tour started on the 5th in Miami so by this show The Wailers were in a tight groove. It was a new time for Bob and The Wailers band with the addition of the I-Threes Judy, Marcia, and Rita on tour. The performances on this tour would help sky rock Bob’s music to the mainstream with the huge popularity of No Woman, No Cry. The recordings from the Lyceum in London later in the Tour being used for one of the greatest Live LP’s ever showing the power of Bob’s live presence to everyone. The setlist contains one of the rare performances of Nice Time and So Jah Seh. Plus a very special rendition of Get Up Stand Up with Bob scatting and changing up the lyrics through out. A few recorded sources have surfaced over the years. This one recorded by a well known New York area musical archivist Jerry Moore and from copy of his master. Many Marley live concert collectors put shows from this tour and 1979 tour as their favorites. Performance like this and the rest of this tour massively helped shape the aura and highly rising popularity of Bob Marley.”

Included here is a review by Don Rojas which appeared in the July 9, 1975 issue of NY New Amsterdam News. “The ’75 Manhattan Center gig was a classic BM&W performance! In addition to the fantastic lossless audio captured from it (see below), we now have some video which can only be described as phenomenal. As part of the ‘MARLEY’ documentary push in 2012, the family had the video recording upgraded to high-definition, however, very little was actually featured in the film. It was released as a special feature on the Blu-Ray DVD of MARLEY. It is currently the highest quality video footage of a Marley performance in existence.”
