The concert contained on this CD took place at The Santa Barbara County Bowl in the autumn of 1979, when Bob was touring in support of his militant Survival album. And the resulting film is an epochal record of a Bob Marley performance; one that stands up as being easily an equal of the better known Live at the Rainbow show filmed on the Exodus tour in 1977. For all intents and purposes, the Survival tour had kicked off on September 24 1979, when Bob and the Wailers had played a benefit concert for Rasta children in the National Heroes Arena in Kingston: 1979 was the United Nations’ International Year of the Child. At that ‘Heroes’ Park’ show, Bob introduced the audience to a pair of new songs from the imminent Survival album - “Ambush in the Night,” the story of the assassination attempt on his life by gunmen on December 3 1976, and “Zimbabwe,” in which he expressed his militant support of the freedom movement in the country still known as Rhodesia.

Bob Baldwin's twist on holiday songs is the ultimate musical gift to the universe. Christmas favorites with the signature "Baldwin Twist", as he taps into his Gospel roots blended with Jazz and Soul Music. A timeless piece for the ages. "Trying to make a holiday record is so weird because it's seasonal," says the native New Yorker. "Doing Christmas jingles in August when sweat is rolling down your neck can be challenging, but after eight years of pulling music together, we finally came up with something that we hope speaks to the word 'classic', and something my audience can pull out every year and feel the music with a current type of sensibility. This is definitely one of my favorite projects recorded." - Bob Baldwin

Originally issued only in Jamaica, this Lee Perry/Bob Marley-produced early-'70s album saw the Wailers continue their move from their ska and rocksteady roots to a more sparely produced form of early reggae, also moving toward more spiritual concerns and aspirations toward peaceful brotherhood in their lyrics. Actually, for a Lee Perry production it's rather on the basic no-frills side, with a stark ambience highlighting the vocal harmonies and throbbing bass.

Originally released in 1972 on Vanguard Records, Bob Frank’s self titled debut album took elements of Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Ian Tyson and filtered it through a pot-smoked haze infused with Frank’s long-time friend, Memphis guru Jim Dickinson.

Preserving newly written Bob Dylan songs for copyright is the reason why the Band's Garth Hudson rolled tape at Big Pink but The Basement Tapes were something much more than songwriting demos. Greil Marcus dubbed it a celebration of the "Old, Weird America" in his 1997 book Invisible Republic, connecting these songs to Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, adding an extra layer of myth to tapes that were shrouded in mystery from the moment bootlegs started to circulate. The Basement Tapes Complete strengthens portions of that legend while simultaneously puncturing it. Certainly, the six-disc box – its first five discs assembled according to Hudson's numbering system, with the sixth disc collecting sessions discovered later – feels substantially different from the LP released in 1975, where the overall picture was distorted by Robbie Robertson adding sometimes significant overdubs and including Band recordings that weren't cut during those seven months in 1967.

John Wesley Harding is Bob Dylan's eighth studio album and was originally released on December 27, 1967 on Columbia Records. It marked Dylan's return to acoustic roots music after having made three albums of electric rock. The album was incredibly well-received by listeners and critics alike, and the song "All Along the Watchtower" became one of Dylan's most popular numbers after it was covered by Jimi Hendrix the following year.

I picked this CD up from Starbuck's the other day because I noticed there was a Previously Undreleased live version of No Woman, No Cry. I proceeded to listen to the album on the ride home the next day. The great thing about Marley and the Wailers is one song can be listened to with excitement, and the same song can later serve as a lullaby at a later time.
