Bob Marley LIVE! [vi] - The Yvette Acoustic Tape 1976

This might be news to some of you. This tape is a little bit of a gem. It's Bob at his girlfriends house, jamming away on his guitar. I can find very little information on this one as usual, but the files came to me with a text document so here it is:
Recorded in one of Bob's girlfriend's houses this tape includes
many songs that Bob never released and some that would become some
of his most famous classics. The mood is really relaxed and Bob
seems to be in a really great mood often laughing out loud at some
of the things he is singing. He then gets a bit more serious
with the deeply religious God of All Ages where he is accompanied
by the heartbeat rhythm of a bongo drum.
Rumors is also another great highlight featuring some fantastic vocal form.
Bob on this tape also composes some of jammin as well as a very early rendition of
Easy Skanking. He also chats a bit between songs about opening a hospital in Ethiopia.
The tape closes out with Oh What a Day, which is a long very early version of what
would become Misty Morning.

So there you have it. One website tells me that his girlfriends name was Yvette Crichton and that it was in Jamaica. She had a son by Bob: Makeda Marley, in 1981.

I found a picture of Bob and Yvette when they were an item!

This was obviously just recorded on some tape machine so don't be expecting studio quality recording here, saying that, it's ok. Don't miss it!

Still looking for potential members here. If you can upload and offer even ONE album a week, I want you! Email me to join and you could be posting the next album!!

Hmm...seems I might have made a bit of a mistake with the photo of Yvette crichton.
see this thread here: where I got the photo and they are discussing the credibility of it.
I cannot find another photo of Yvette anywhere...
