Regular price $ 27.99

180-gram LP with insert. In July 1973, Bob Marley and The Wailers were about to embark on their first international tour to promote their latest album, Catch a Fire. Released in April 1973, it had broken into the UK and USA charts and caught the attention of influential music critics everywhere. Reggae music was on the verge of becoming a global phenomenon and The Wailers had secured a prominent role in it's delivery through Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. Before supporting roles with Bruce Springsteen and Sly and the Family Stone, the band was booked at Boston's premier jazz venue, Paul's Mall, for a week-long residency. There can be little doubt that this is a truly precious document of an iconic band in their prime, and with the inclusion of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer before their departure, it makes this particular broadcast all the more essential. Klondike proudly presents the entire original WBCN-FM broadcast of Bob Marley and The Wailers live at Paul's Mall in Boston, Massachusetts on July 11, 1973. Professionally remastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
