Heartland Reggae - Bob Marley 1978 [VIDEO]

Life has been unkind for such a long time, I've been to hell and then some. The most difficult part is right now. The Crohn's disease feels like it is killing me..
I don't have much strength to sit and write today but I just wanted to post something.
This isn't even a new post. It's an old one with a new link to the film on  youtube, since I got ravaged by the web sheriff and other corporations that hate music sharing.
Funny how youtube is OK though eh?

I will just leave the original info about this film, it does the job.
I hope you had a very good Christmas, not a commercial, presents and greed-filled one, just time with your family. I did.
I wish you the very best of luck for 2014. Let us hope it will be a much better year than 2013, my worst health year ever!

I got hold of a few different films based on the history of reggae, Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and related stuff. I have really been loving watching these and they are so relaxing during some pretty intense pain filled days...I just smoke some weed and try to sail over the pain, with the music. Oh and a hot water bottle burning my abdomen of course and my cat, Oliver, keeping my morale up. Hehe. Pathetic I know but life is as it is..

Well here it is, excuse a lack of deep research but if I tried to explain where my mind is you wouldn't understand a word I said...neither would I!

Heartland Reggae - Bob Marley 1978
A website too!
This is an amazing to watch film, beautiful Jamaican scenes, great performances of great reggae music by the masters themselves..

Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, U-Roy, Inner Circle, Jacob Miller, Junior Tucker, Jody Mowatt, Dennis Brown, Althea & Donna, Lloyd Parkes, Ras Lee Morris, Marcia Griffiths, Natty Garfield. There, I think that's about all of them!
OK this film Is a bit amatuer, the dubbing seems awful at times but generally you can hear it fine and it works. The way it switches from a live set, to some Jamaican scenery is apparently random..but it still looks nice there :)
This film is shot just before and during the One Love Peace Concert in Jamaica in 1978, during what you might call a 'trying time' for the locals, police and politicians...the reggae singers didn't have ot so easy either. this is the famous part whetre Bob Marley get's the two opposition dicks to shake hands on stage.. the fact that there is an amazing thunderstorm with lightning striking is somehow apt for the situation.


U-Roy is superb on here, made me go crack open an old album of his I hadn't listened to for a while..still as good as it ever was too.

OK my friends, hope you enjoy this fine film and I hope I can return sooner than last time, I have another reggae film uploading for you, it was a stroke of luck I managed to find it so it isn't so easily available online :)

And it gives me some hope in times of sadness,
that there are people struggling so bad for a better life
and still trying to improve the other lifes as well...
You, sir, are one of the most respectables among us.

Hey Mo, thanks for the comment. I don't know about 'sir' hehe but thanks :)
Life sucks sometimes. For many people. In different ways.
My point is I suppose that you find yourself dealing with the stuff that you are dealt with and it can be so hard but we all get there.
Or not hehe.
Either way, music helps.
Very much!
All the best,
