The Fantastic Bob Marley: The Yvette Acoustic Tape 1976

I have included a profile of Bob Marley and the Wailers titled “The Fantastic Bob Marley“, published in the Jamaica Gleaner Sunday Edition on August 10, 1975.  Please visit ISSUU to read the profile.

I have also included a link to The Yvette Acoustic Tape:

“Recorded in one of Bob’s girlfriend’s houses this tape includes many songs that Bob never released and some that would become some of his most famous classics.   The mood is really relaxed and Bob seems to be in a really great mood often laughing out loud at some of the things he is singing.   He then gets a bit more serious with the deeply religious ‘God of All Ages’ where he is accompanied by the heartbeat rhythm of a bongo drum.   ‘Rumors’ is also another great highlight featuring some fantastic vocal form.   Bob on this tape also composes some of ‘Jammin’ as well as a very early rendition of ‘Easy Skanking’.   He also chats a bit between songs about opening a hospital in Ethiopia.   The tape closes out with ‘Oh What a Day’, which is a long very early version of what would become ‘Misty Morning’.”

This historic recording is a must-have for any serious Bob Marley fan.  Enjoy!
