Bob Marley and the Wailers’ summer 1977 concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre will make its DVD debut Nov. 8 via Universal Music Enterprises. “Live! At the Rainbow” was originally issued in 1991 on VHS but has been expanded here as a two-disc package with several new features.
The show was taped just as Marley’s iconic album “Exodus” was cruising up the U.K. charts and finds the artist backed by a Wailers lineup featuring lead guitarist Junior Marvin, the brotherly rhythm section of drummer Carlton Barrett and bassist Aston “Familyman” Barrett and backing vocalists Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffith.
The 100-minute, interview-laden documentary “Caribbean Nights: The Bob Marley Story” will be found on disc two, as well as a video tour of the artist’s home village, Nine Mile.
