"If reggae music is your passion, don't miss the lovely REGGAE ON THE RIVER 2-DVD set: it captures in depth and detail the story of Humboldt County California annual Reggae on the River festival, now into its 20th year.
Disc 1 focuses on the story of how the festival evolved from a fund-raiser to replace a community center torched in an arson fire to its present incarnation as one of the largest, most popular music festivals in California.
Disc 2 of REGGAE ON THE RIVER provides a focus on the music itself, gathering the finest moments from the 3-day festival's 20th anniversary show and including bonus menus and tracks."
I love this dvd!!! A must have for true reggae collectors...

"Are you kidding me? This dvd is one of my favorite reggae concert dvds of all time, and I have a collection of nearly 100 now. The opening Third World "96 Degrees in the Shade" will amaze you; Michael Franti blows everyone away with "We Don't Stop", David Lindley is superb with "Quarter of a Man", and Anthony B gives one of his best performances ever recorded on film. If "Raid the Barn" or Toots and the Maytals don't get you skankin', then nothing on this planet will. I was at Reggae on the River 06, and this dvd was the reason we decided to make that trip from San Diego. A MUST HAVE! I would give this one 6 stars if humanly possible. A few of the songs are a little disappointing (I'm not a big fan of Baby Cham, and Marcia Griffiths butchers Bob Marley's classic "Redemption Song"), but the rest are absolutely phenomenal. If all reggae concert dvds had this level of production quality, then it would make our lives a lot eaiser. BUY THIS DVD!!! You'll thank me later."
