All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
As the title implies, this is indeed Bob Marley & the Wailers captured in performance at the Lyceum Ballroom in London during the final U.K. leg of the Natty Dread tour. Passionate and symbiotic energies constantly cycle between the band and audience, the net result of which is one of the most memorable concert recordings of the pop music era. With the addition of lead guitarist Al Anderson during the recording sessions for their previous long-player, Natty Dread, the Wailers took increasing strides toward a seamless transition into the consciousness of the rock music audience. Anderson's bluesy guitar runs liberate "Burnin' and Lootin'" as well as "Trenchtown Rock," the only new composition on Live!. Anderson bobs and weaves his supple-toned fretwork among the somewhat staid rhythms common to reggae. The mutual affinity that binds Marley with his audience is evident in the roars of approval that greet the opening notes of "Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)," "I Shot the Sheriff," and "Kinky Reggae." Likewise, "No Woman, No Cry" elicits a group singalong as the sheer volume of the audience challenges that of the amplified musicians. With this evidence, there is no denying that Bob Marley & the Wailers were becoming the unlikeliest of pop music icons. Additionally, Live! underscores the underrated talents of the Wailers as musicians. Older works such as "Burnin' and Lootin'" and "I Shot the Sheriff" benefit greatly from Tyrone Downie's keyboard punctuation and the soulful backing vocals of the I-Threes. The 2001 Definitive Remasters issue of Live! is appended with "Kinky Reggae," which was originally released as the B-side to "No Woman, No Cry." The track was taken from the same Lyceum performance in July of 1975. Likewise, Live! is the title that seems to have sonically benefited the most from the remastering work done by Ted Jensen.
All Music Guide
"One good thing about music -- when it hits, you feel no pain." So proclaims Bob Marley in the opening line of this concert recording, and he and his band proceed to brutalize the crowd with the finest reggae then being produced. Live! can be taken on either of two levels: First, as one of the greatest live albums of all time, and second, for the uninitiated, as an excellent introduction to the music Marley & the Wailers were making in the early to mid '70s. It is, in a very real sense, Marley's "greatest hits" collection of the 1973-75 era. ~ Jim Newsom, All Music Guide

    simply awesome

    From the beginning to the end it is a classic album- if at the end of Get Up Stand Up you do not want to go fight injustices - I will be very surprised. The call and response between Bob Marley and his singers/ audience is truely moving. The Wailers are accomplished musicians who add to Bob Marley's charisma that you can feel through his interaction with the audience. The most impressive part of the CD, and what makes Bob Marley a legend is that what he sings- he means. There is no doubting the conviction of his beliefs.
