Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Bob Marley Live In London, 1977

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, Bob Marley was recognized as "...reggae’s foremost practitioner and emissary, embodying its spirit and spreading its gospel to all corners of the globe." A prolific songwriter whose music reflected his Rastafarian beliefs, the deprivations of the Jamaican ghetto and the demand for social change, Marley was also a dynamic performer, evident in this rendition of "Lively Up Yourself" at the Rainbow Theatre in London, June 1977.
