Released at the end of 1975 as the legendary Live! album and was broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour in 1976. After a particularly up-tempo version of "Burnin' & Lootin'" they segue into a spirited take of "No Woman, No Cry," which has the entire audience The show takes an upward thrust when they kick out "Kinky Reggae," which Marley uses as an introduction jam to present members of The Wailers to the audience. Marley was incredibly animated during this show, which is somewhat odd since by this point in his career, he had gotten more introspective onstage, concentrating mainly on the political message he was preaching. This show, however, is an exception, with Marley getting the audience deeply involved in the spirit of the show. "Lively Up Yourself" is a perfect example of where the rhythm of the band meshes perfectly with the rhythm of the audience. "Stir It Up," is another rhythmic gem, with Marley doing a joyous interplay between his vocals and those of his back up singers, The I-Three, which featured his wife, Rita. The electric piano solo played through a wah-wah pedal by Tyrone Downie takes the track to a whole new dimension. Other highlights include the always infectious "I Shot The Sheriff," which had already become a massive hit internationally thanks to a near-perfect cover by Eric Clapton; and the Marley standard "Get Up Stand Up." This concert is a wonderful testament to the genius of Bob Marley and his ability to entertain any audience he was placed in front of. This is almost the complete show from Lyceum, missing only Trenchtown Rock as its intro song. All these songs have been released on the "Live" album 1975 (except Stir It Up which was released posthumously on "Babylon By Bus", but was recorded here). The version of No Woman No Cry is the most famous version and often played on the radio. Both Lively Up Yourself & Get Up Stand Up was cut into around 6 minutes on the original "Live!" album and faded out, but here we can listen to the whole songs.
