Notes

Mike Stand wrote of Marley in his interview piece titled “Better Off Dread” (Smash Hits, 1980):

Just how deeply he’d touched people was proved when he was invited to play at the Zimbabwe independence celebrations this year. When I asked Marley about it he smiled and sort of glowed with quiet pride but said very little, as if the occasion had been
a private one, although the concert and ceremonials were conducted in front of tens of thousands in a football stadium.

He did mention one jarring note though. Before the historic midnight, a disturbance among the crowds jostling to get in was answered by the police firing tear gas. But Marley wasn’t going to let a minor upset spoil the honour and happiness he felt.

“It was an experience for I an’ I y’know, strong feh watch the t’ing workin’ out,” he said in his calm, quiet sing-song manner.  “And we feel good feh taste little tear gas in Zimbabwe, get a little o’ th’ oppression there.”
