Dubwise Personal Notes: One of my favorite Bob shows. Its very special because its the first time his mother saw him perform.
He does some uncommon songs like Night Shift and Johnny Was and Jah Live. A lot of different talking between songs and lyrical changes.
Bob is in a great mood. Enjoy this remaster.
