Review

* AUD source 1 is one of the best sounding AUD recordings. It was
recorded by a "deadhead" (a fan of The Grateful Dead).
* AUD source 1 cuts out after "No Woman, No Cry" and cuts in back
at the very beginning of "Jammin'".
* AUD source 2 has slightly inferior, but still great sound and is
complete as well. It features the very beginning of "Jammin'", but has a
cut during "No Woman, No Cry".

Review

* a recording surfaced in 2007 due to a lossy digital radio broadcast by
Danish National Radio on occasion of the 2007 Roskilde Festival.
* probably an audience recording, since the audience is very notable and
the sound is a bit distant.
* it is likely that songs which have been played on almost every 1978
concert ("Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)", "War", "No More Trouble")
as well as maybe a few others like "The Heathen", "Crisis" or "Lively Up
Yourself" are missing.
* "Positive Vibration" cuts out towards the end.
* "Rebel Music" cuts in at the end.
* "Concrete Jungle" cuts out at the beginning.
* "Crazy Baldhead" cuts in at the beginning.
* most of "Is This Love?" and "Jammin'" is missing.

Review

* this show was initially planned to be released on the Babylon By Bus

* several show excerpts of various lengths have been broadcast on Dutch
radios.
* all the liberated bootlegs like "Jah Is Ready", "Rotterdam, Holland 1978"
"Europe/USA 1978" or "Fight For Your Rights" have inferior sound quality
because the right channel of the actual stereo recording had been
extended to the left channel, making it an inferior mono recording. The
radio broadcasts and one mislabeled bootleg have stereo sound, but are
incomplete.
* one radio broadcast included the opener Steel Pulse. All radio broadcasts are lossy.

* It was not clear if the recording is from the early or from the late show,
as two shows were performed on that date. In 2006 an audience
recording from the late show surfaced (see 1978-07-18 (late) for details).
* "Positive Vibration" cuts in. There's a cut during "No Woman, No Cry"

 tape problems during the second half.

(see 1978-07-21 for more details).
* "Yeah, you know... so the Rastaman Vibration got to be positive! Yeah!"
  Marley before "Positive Vibration"

Rastafari! Rastafari! Rastafari! Jah Rastafari, Selassie I the First, earth's
rightful ruler! Easy Skanking! Excuse me while I light my spliff, good God,
