Bob Marley Honored with Year Long Celebration for His 70th Birthday

Bob Marley’s music has inspired those young and old from all over the world for decades. Even 31 years after his death, he remains an icon whose music and spirituality continues to influence people to this day. This year he would have turned 70 years-old. In honor of his legacy, the Marley family will be commemorating his work with a year-long celebration of his music and global influence. Throughout the year Universal Music Group will be working with the Marley family to share unreleased material to the public.

The first release is Bob Marley & The Wailers – Easy Skanking in Boston ’78The footage was shot by a fan who was given permission by Marley to sit at the front of the stage, and has remained with the Marley family until now. Because the concert was shot with film and the cinematographer needed to change the roles during the show, there are gaps in the footage that have been replaced with beautifully animation while the audio continues to play.

Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 will be available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and CD and in stores on February 17th.
