Bob Marley & The Wailers: Live Forever

Live Forever is the 40th posthumous Bob Marley-related release.  Fortunately, it’s one of the better efforts, thanks to generally pristine audio quality and the significance of the show itself – Marley’s final concert, in which nearly all his utterances seem imbued with a prophetic quality.
