Previously uncirculated photos of Bob Marley live at Jaap Edenhal, Netherlands, 1976

MIDNIGHT RAVER recently obtained 90 photo negatives of Bob Marley and the Wailers performing live at Jaap Edenhal, Netherlands on June 13, 1976.  The photos, taken by photographer LEX VAN ROSSEN (1940-2007), document Marley performing in the Netherlands for the very first time.  These photos are particularly noteworthy because they show guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith on-stage with the band.  Chinna toured with the Wailers as guitarist on the 1976 tour.

Also included here is an audio recording of the show:

Here are some of the extraordinary photos:


Apple Gabriel in Dub

For all of you Israel Vibration fans out there I am delighted to share with you several dub tracks featuring former Vibration co-founder Albert “Apple Gabriel” Craig.  These tracks were supremely produced by Netherlands-based mixologists “Not Easy At All” production crew.  Very strong stuff in a time when we need it most…


Bob Marley and the Wailers: Jaap Edenhal, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1976

So the show I’m sharing with you today is very special.  Why?  Because it is a newly released show that has never circulated in the 35 years since it’s taping.  I received this show yesterday from my very good friend Fred from France who owns  According to Fred, the show was leaked to the web 2 days ago by the original taper, a Dutchman by the name of Hans “Madtaper” Devente.  We owe this taper a huge debt of gratitude not only because he shared with us an historic show, the audio of which most never even knew existed.  But he also performed a substantial upgrade to the audio to make it quite listenable.

According to his file notes, which are included in the download, this was Bob Marley’s very first appearance in the Netherlands.  My friend Martin Huisman, also of the Netherlands, has written extensively on Marley’s performances in the Netherlands.

Many have been enjoying this great show from Grammy winner Stephen Marley and Crew for months now.  It was broadcast on a few networks-satellite channels some complete and some in different qualities. I recently came across this opening bonus track of Punky Reggae Party that Stephen likes to open the show with. Below is the rest of the show in the highest quality available so get ready for some roots, rock, reggae.

And the rest of the show, which has been on tearing up youtube.
