The Bob Marley Reggae Tribute 1981
April 24, 2002
|Length||Approx. 103 minutes|
|Producer/Director||Karen Baxter & Robert H. Peitscher|
This 'Reggae Tribute' was filmed at Sunsplash IV, a four night event planned as a tribute to Bob Marley, who died three months earlier on May 11th, 1981. The impressive line-up of artists, introduced by MC Tommy Cowan, gives a fair impression of what was happening in reggae music in those days. The dancehall style was in full bloom and Dennis Brown, Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse and Gregory Isaacs were the superstars of reggae music. Their deliveries, together with Eek A Mouse's performance of Wa Do Dem ae highlights on this video. But there's more. The Mighty Diamonds and Third World deliver good contributions, but for me Louie Lepke's Tribute To Bob is the best this tape has to offer. Although the sound and image quality isn't always perfect it has a lot of goodies to offer.
