Smile Jamaica


The Smile Jamaica Concert was a concert held on December 5, 1976, at the National Heroes Park, Kingston, Jamaica, performed by Bob Marley & The Wailers. Only 2 days after Marley had almost been killed by gunmen in his house, but survived and was driven up in the Blue Mountains. Nevertheless Marley agreed to perform one song for the 80,000 people in attendance, but it turned into a whole 90-minute performance despite his injuries. All Wailers performed except Bassman Aston "Familyman" Barret. A guest Bass player performed in his place. The performance included a horn section. The set list for the show was as follows 1. War/ No More Trouble/ Get Up Stand Up 2. Crazy Baldhead/ Positive Vibration 3. Smile Jamaica 4. Rat Race 5. TrenchTown Rock 6. Keep on Moving 7. Want More 8. Them Belly Full 9. Jah Live 10. Rastaman Chant 11. Rebel Music 12. So Jah Seh

After the concert Marley left Jamaica for London where he stayed for 16 months until he returned in 1978 for the One Love Peace Concert.

Review

    * Marley's last concert before going to exile in London and coming back for the One Love Peace Concert (see also 1978-04-22).
    * "Crazy Baldhead" is heavily cut, fading in at the end of the song
    * only known live performance of "Smile Jamaica" and "Keep On Moving".
    * rare live performance of "Jah Live".
    * members of Third World were Marley's band for that concert.
    * during "War" Marley shows his injuries to the audience.
