Bob Marley and the Wailers, Live at Westfalenhalle, Dortmund, Germany 1980 (New Audio Source)

What I have shared with you today is high quality video footage of the now-historic performance at Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Nordrhein-Westfalen on June 13, 1980.  This is probably one of Marley’s best known shows as it has been rebroadcast throughout Europe on live rock television shows like “Rockpalast”.
This concert features a lovely intro set by the I-Threes followed by a fiery performance by The Wailers.  The video quality is near perfect, thanks to fans who have continually upgraded it year after year.  This footage is much better than even the bootlegged DVDs circulating right now (I know because I purchased one).  Much like the Amandla footage from 1979, it is somewhat surprising that this concert has not been released officially by Island or Tuff Gong as it would require very little remastering/upgrading.
I could not locate a press review for the Dortmund, Germany show, therefore I included a review of the Strasbourg, France performance, which took place a few days earlier on June 9, 1980.  The review, written by Desmond Allen, was published in the Jamaica Gleaner on June 19, 1980.
Enjoy!  It is not every day that you get Marley footage of this quality!
