February is going to feel a lot like July once this album is released! Recorded 30 years ago while reggae star Bob Marley was touring in support of his album Uprising, Live Forever is Marley's last recorded concert. This never-before-released audio collection offers an incredible snapshot of one of music's most influential performers.
Bob Marley & The Wailers – Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, September 23, 1980 (UMe/Tuff Gong International) is a 2CD/3LP/digital collection that features many of the singer's most cherished songs, and is available for the first time on February 1st, 2011. This unforgettable concert contains unique performances of "No Woman No Cry," "Jammin'" and "Is This Love," to name a few, and depicts a musical innovator and inspiration to people of many cultures and generations. This spectacular audio documentary Live Forever also immortalizes the last song Marley ever performed live in concert: "Get Up Stand Up," his rallying cry for equality.
"Bob's music has always conveyed a message of hope, unity and love. It has brought countless people together as it did that night 30 years ago in Pittsburgh. To hear that music today and to be able to share it with a new generation shows that Bob is as relevant today as he was 30 years ago," said Rita Marley in a statement.
The momentous occasion captured on Live Forever is now available on 2CD/3LP/digital, for the benefit of all who missed their first opportunity to attend that magical evening. Marley's influence on today's musical landscape and his continuous worldwide appeal is still evident today. And his legacy and message carry on. That's the most important thing, since Marley's message was so positive and uplifting. It must and should live on.
The Marley family also plans to commemorate Bob Marley and his legacy with other celebratory events throughout the year in 2011.
