Jamaica’s Gleaner looks at the release of Live Forever, the recording of Bob Marley’s last concert.
At the time, everyone in Pittsburgh’s Stanley Theatre knew they were witnesses to history.
Bob Marley stood tall and proud onstage and beckoned them to “Get Up, Stand Up,” and they responded loudly with wo yo yo yo. Later they discovered the history they witnessed was, in fact, Marley’s last performance. Live Forever encapsulates the pure energy of that fateful performance by Jamaica’s most legendary son.
The original live recording, captured on tape by Marley’s engineer Dennis Thompson, has been lovingly preserved and remastered for the 30th anniversary album release exclusively in the Caribbean. Adding to the distinctiveness of the collection-worthy album is the special eco-friendly packaging.
