Bob Marley / Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 / new audio-video set

bob_easyskanking

Universal Music will issue Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 next month, an audio/video deluxe set that documents Bob Marley and the Wailers’ live show at the Boston Music Hall in the summer of 1978.

Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 features the first set of that evening (8 June) and this 13-track live show not only features on the CD but also a DVD (or Blu-ray) , because some apparently great footage, recorded from a single hand-held camera at very front of crowd, has been found.

The 46-minute video includes seven of the 13 songs in the full set. Where there is no video (because the film was being changed in the camera!) a new animation has been created to ‘fill the gaps’.

Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 is out on 16 February 2015

    A fan-shot, handheld concert video from 1978 on Blu-Ray? Is that really necessary? :)

    I hope they will release 2CD deluxe versions of the remaining Island albums. I’d prefer that over more live stuff at this point.

  2. hedley says:

    The CD/Blu Ray seems a bit heavily priced at $35.

  3. Fat Old Bloke says:

    Unessesary DVD. For extreme fans only. This is the way things are going with so called deluxe sets with a DVD that contains dubious content.

  4. fan says:

    …and no LP…
