Celebrate Bob Marley's Music!

"Bob Marley's music speaks for itself. This DVD captures a concert in Jamaica where various artists gathered and performed, to celebrate his music. And it is good. The video quality is clear, and the sound (mix) is equally crisp. I enjoyed watching the various artists perform Bob Marley's songs. The Reggae is excellent.But I've got to say, there is something missing, aside from Bob Marley himself. Perhaps my opinion was/is affected by the appearance of RAP music on this celebration of Bob Marley's music. Believe me, I've tried to figure out what it is that appeals to people in regard to RAP, and I can't make a connection, at least not musically. I was enjoying the DVD until Rap appeared, effectively ruining my mood. Call me old fashioned and limited, but the riot cadence of RAP doesn't blend with Marley's music, which I happen to love.My advice to consumers is to rent this DVD, and then decide whether or not you want to own it.You may find that listening to Bob Marley himself, is the best."
Mixed bag with some real gems

"I'm generally skeptical about tribute concerts, but this one is quite decent. Superb sound and visual quality, and most of it is true to Bob's spirit. The performances vary. I thought the worst by far were the two songs with Chrissie Hynde. I love her from days past, but her movements looked ridiculously forced on stage and musically she just didn't do justice to Bob's genius. I don't follow Lauryn Hill, but I thought she was fabulous, both solo in "Turn the Lights Down Low" and when she teamed up with Ziggy on "Redemption Song." What a voice and stage presence! Chris Robinson sang an incredibly rousing and soulful version of "Kinky Reggae" with Damian Marley. It's always a pleasure to watch another reggae legend, Jimmy Cliff, on stage. He's more subdued than his "Harder They Come" days, but his performance of "No Woman No Cry" with Erykah Badu was very moving, a great tribute to one of Bob's finest songs. Other numbers are mixed, but overall compelling. We can all be grateful that so many of Bob's children took up the torch to continue his musical legacy. I agree with one reviewer that the very talented Ky-Mani Marley should have been included in one of the feature tracks; he only shows up in bonus tracks.
I initially took this DVD out at my local library, and after watching it a couple of times, decided I had to buy it. A nice addition to my Marley collection."

"May 11, 2001 marks the 20th anniversary of Bob Marley's death yet it seems like only yesterday as these artists keep the memory of Bob Marley alive. The Rap improvizations get a little tiresome and I have to say sometimes "Bob Marley didn't write that part". Ziggy Marley is in top top form and for that reason I rate it 5 stars rather than 3 or 4. I also really liked Tracy Chapman's performances as it looks like she is really enjoying herself and she has a great voice. Ben Harper does a nice version of Get Up, Stand Up and Darius Rucker belts out a spirited version of War. The bonus features make it well worth the price."

"This DVD is a "must have" for all serious home theatre enthusiasts that enjoy reggae music. The Dolby 5.1 tracks are fantastic, I have never seen any concert DVD production this good, I dont believe actually being at the concert would have given you a better experience than what this DVD has to offer in the comfort of your home. The video production is simply "in your face awesome"."
