Bob Marley Time Capsule

To rate or comment:

From time to time in my continuing explorations of a big stack of 20-year-old VHS Hi-Fi tapes I made back in the late 1980s, I find such a priceless gem that I have to share it online.

Today was such a day. While going through a tape I recorded in Birmingham, Alabama, in December 1987, I happened upon an Island Records 25th Anniversary special that included a five-minute career overview of Bob Marley, including concert clips, interview excerpts with Island founder and producer Chris Blackwell, and Eric Clapton covering Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff."

The narrator is Grace Jones. The special originally aired on MTV.
