7. Bob Marley & The Wailers – Uptown Theater, Chicago, IL, November 13, 1979


This concert was one stop on Marley’s 1979 “Survival” tour through the U.S. — just a few weeks before, Marley had been featured as the first reggae artist ever to perform at the Apollo Theater, where he had a week-long run. The recording comes from an audience member, who somehow had convinced security to let him record. He captured the only live version of “Survival” ever recorded, on an up-close and personal video of what it would have been like to actually be an audience member at one of Marley’s concerts.
