from cassette master with a few short splices from a different edit of the same master plus
another taper’s 1st gen. source that had the tape flip in a different place.
You’ll have to listen very carefully to hear the transitions and it is now the entire show without any cut songs.

01 [05:26] Positive Vibration
02 [03:46] Dem Belly Full
03 [06:05] Concrete Jungle

05 [03:58] War!

07 [04:50] Heathen
08 [03:26] Easy Skanking
09 [04:37] I Shot The Sheriff

04 [03:36] > Punky Reggae Party
05 [09:52] > Exodus

Some microphone handling noises, level changes and minor dropouts were eliminated or minimized seamlessly and this now sounds way better than previous versions of this show. I consider this to be possibly the best sounding audience Bob Marley recording that I have heard. Check the samples to judge the sound for yourself.thanks to Dime users chkorch, wailertape and scottsays (by way of pantagruel) for supplying the various sources that make up this remaster.Info for primary cassette master source: Nakamichi CM300 microphones with CP4 shotgun capsules > Nakamichi 550 cassette deck master > Dat > CD.

No equalization or noise reduction was used in the mastering process.

The sound clarity is amazing, the source is SOUNDBOARD and the tracks come across as studio quality.I did seperate the unedited original files, and only am sharing the best of the best here,,,,,,
to save bandwidth for those across the globe.
Thanks must go to the Remaster by Soul Rebel who we must give Much Respect for his work – amazing here in editing and compiling this gem freely for us to enjoy.
Thank You Soul Rebel and friends.
Here for this post I am breaking the original folder structure as I am only sharing the Remasters,
This is frowned upon….. but I feel it is neccesary to cut the folder size in half for those who do not have the bandwidth to download a monster file.
These Marley lovers should not suffer because of bandwith regualations where they live.
If I get enough PM’s I will upload the original Wave files, so Bob Marley fans can have them for archiving and comparison.
As Soul Rebel has mentioned above:
Please for the Love of Jah – Do Not Convert these to MP3 and Upload to other sites,
Much Respect to Soul Rebel for this rare gem.
Thank you also must got to traininvain09 for helping me find this brilliant copy, thank you.

There was a supposed recorded interview with Bob by the BBC after the Wailers finished “Get Up Stand Up”  however it is still unknown if the interview also took place November 26, 1973.

Much Respect to my friend Bomba for sharing this rare gem with me,
please find the 2 Original enclosed text from Bomba in the folder.
Here’s some of the original notes and comments:

“In praise and to the glory of the Rastafari, InI bring one love and Inity
to the massive with this gem from the original Wailers.
All of your favorite artists are together on three rare tracks from June of 1973.
In perfect harmony are Bob, Bunny, and Peter, backed by the solid rhythms of Carlton and Family Man.
Studio quality with a little hiss for historical accuracy, this is as special as
any material traded among his fans.
Then comes the second of the two sessions, this one from November 1973 without Bunny.
The Peter Tosh material, though, is still great.
With an open heart, you too can share some of this joy”. Bomba

“This is the first in a line of DAT seeds, Jah willing, from a great friend
of music named Joey Newlander, aka cosmofone.
His collection is so blessed, as are we to share in his generosity.
To him, respect Itinually.
He converts DAT > CD, which come in the mail and are extracted on
a Plextor 712A, using EAC in High/Secure, Test and Copy mode,
with proper read offsets and the like.
All the details are in the logs.
Conversion, tracking, text & seed to EZT in Nov. 2004 by nibbles,
just a regular guy who wanted to share what makes him happy”. Bomba

FreeMorrison Notes:
Original Eac Log file, Original FFP, Original Wailers-Scan-Shntool, and 2 Original InfoText Documents Included.
New FFP, MD5, auCDTect Flac Reports (100 % Flac), SBE’s Checked and Passed,
And 300dpi Art Work by FreeMorrison Included.

Please Feel Free To Share this one Anywhere, keeping the folder structure intact, please do not alter the Flacs, Bomba or nibbles have already tagged the files so they are ready to burn to disc properly.

Recorded by the legendary Neil Cronin and copied in a trade in the mid 70’s to two Sony PR-150 reels for Taper Pat. Mastered to cd by Matt Smith — R >apogee mini me (24/96) > apogee mini dac (monitoring) > wavelab 5.0 (dithered to 20/44) > CD (thanks a ton guys!!!) @

@ a little background on this gem. i saw this version of this show on one of Taper Pat’s lists and asked for a copy. I believe Matt had part of it and Pat had the rest of it, and then they put it together and sent me a copy. so grateful my friends! new wailers sources of this quality are truly rare and just wonderful. despite the minor blemishes on all copies that come from the set up and station, this is a joy to listen to and i don’t think this will get any better. maybe someday we’ll see a transfer from the mr or prefm source but that it has taken this long to get this source out, I’m not counting on it.

1st US performance – great show – overall, very enjoyable sound
of course it still has the slight monitor and / or equipment noise and perhaps some fm interference that are present on the commonly available sources (faint hum or buzz and occasional slight crackle?)

morever, we have had a copy with unknown generation
and then in 2005 emerged a 3rd gen tape. i really enjoy it but it was edited
by a person with little experience. i believe they did a nice job with
what they had but there are a few differences between sources:

* this source is a touch longer. it has more of the preshow recorded (bob’s short intro). both are complete however.

* the 3rd gen tape has it’s volume boosted which also boosts
the volume of the blemishes and crowd. as a result, i believe this
source has a more mellow sound and feel overall.

* the 3rd gen tape sounds tampered with, it has had some “equalizing”: it sounds and feels a little unnatural while this seems to have a more steady sound and feel to it. this new source has a fuller range and dynamic of instruments and vocals. in other words, the equalizing seems to both amplify and bury the music resulting in a less authentic and pleasing experience for me.
the edited tape version sounds more tinny and has less warmth than the unedited reel version.

* i can understand the dilemma of to edit or not: i think we need both. while
editing major issues can move toward restoration, it can also distort the actual sound of the show. editing also results in irreversible changes preventing continual improvements or remasters as individual skill and technology improve. it also reflects and embodies the subjective preferences of the editor which is very risky. still if a version can be enhanced to make the listening experience
as enjoyable as it can be at that time, that’s nice to have until even better upgrades are possible. I believe it is ideal to have a “raw” or unedited version in order to both preserve the music and allow for the best possible long term improvements.

While I don’t think you will be disappointed by either source, especially given the band and what’s generally available from them, imo, it’s critical that we get this source and upgrade into general circulation.
