Considering the wealth of live material that must exist in the Marley vault, it's somewhat surprising that these releases have barely trickled out over the years. The choices could be equally confounding at times as well. The Roxy '76 release was a good but restrained affair and the Pittsburgh '80 release was more significant in terms of its historical relevance (it was Bob's final concert) than the performance itself. Not to mention the sound quality was disappointing.

Good news! Easy Skanking: Boston `78' captures BMW in full flight in front of an obviously adoring audience. The performance is riveting with sound quality to match. The band performed two shows that night in Boston and the Marley Estate wisely chose the early show for release. Both shows have been available for streaming on Wolfgang's Vault for years and I've always thought this one was the one to have.

The opening `Slave Driver' is as blissful as slipping into warm Caribbean water. The `Burning & Looting' segue directly into `Them Belly Full' is smooth as silk. Plus, `Easy Skanking' is a nice live rarity that doesn't pop up on any other official live collections.
