Live at the Roxy: The Complete Concertby Bob Marley & the Wailers
This two-CD set captures the electric night in 1976 at the Roxy in Hollywood when Bob Marley and the Wailers took reggae to the U.S. masses. Riding high on the Top 10 success of Rastaman Vibration, Marley, the classic Wailers band, and vocal trio the I-Threes deliver the classics with gospel fervor. Nine of the ten songs on Disc One were previously issued in 2002 as part of the Rastaman Vibration (Deluxe Edition) package, while the remainder, including the 20-minute encore medley of Disc Two, haven't been heard since May 26, 1976. This is Bob and company at their hungriest, a must for fans and a definitive look at the legend.

Imagine being in The Roxy theater on a warm May evening in 1976. Bob Marley is at the height of his powers. Reggae is a relatively new form of expression, and before you sings the man that revolutionized the genre. Invented it. Sharpened it into a steely knife of triumph and protest and self-expression. This is a must have disc for fans of Bob Marley and perhaps the best introduction any newcomer could have to his music. Reggae is meant to be seen and heard live. This is a magical example of Bob Marley's genius. Truly inspiring.
Bob marley is the man! His music lives with us even though he is gone. This is a great disc with a live show from the roxy. The recording is excellent and sounds like studio quality. Pick this one up!
It puts you there… nothing is better than live music. “Live at the Roxy” has it all. It’s BOB MARLEY and THE WAILERS at their best. Music like this should always be listen to live because of the great sounds and real feel to it… You can hear how the music touches the crowd and the roar of the crowd pumped me up!! “No women no cry” is my favorite song on the CD but this whole CD is good… It money well invested!
