Notes

Bob Marley and The Wailers return to Los Angeles, CA four days after having just played at UCLA’s Paul Pavilion, for a special concert benefitting the Sugar Ray Robinson foundation at the Roxy Theatre.

Roger Steffens spoke about this performance during an interview in 2003:

I last saw him at the end of November in Los Angeles, the night of his Roxy performance, a benefit for the Sugar Ray Robinson Foundation. I sat alone in the Roxy that afternoon with him for nearly 3 hours while he played all the instruments himself and Fams, his band leader, set the sound levels. The first hour he kept singing something I’d never heard before, a song about redemption. I was mesmerized.

That afternoon at the Roxy and 2 of the evenings that same week I arranged for him to see the work print of “Smile Jamaica” and the suppressed documentary about the assassination attempt; and the work print of Heartland Reggae with the One Love Peace Concert footage. Afterwards, we asked Bob what he felt standing there between Seaga and Manley, two men in whose names so many thousands of Jamaicans have been killed. “I man no politician,” he explained, “But if I man a politician only one t’ing for me to do – kill them both.”
