“The Capitol Session ’73” – Bob Marley and The Wailers Concert Video provides crucial entertaiment. “What makes “The Capitol Session ’73’ stand out is that Bob Marley and the Wailers can really relax. They’ve got great sound. They’ve got the equipment that they know if anything goes wrong, it’s fine. It’s going to be fixed. They’ve got a really lovely, appreciative, little audience. All the ingredients for just a great afternoon doing what they loved. And it shows. I mean, it isn’t like anything else.” Director Martin Disney
“From seeing a lot and playing (as in football and sandcastles!) a lot with Bob Marley and the Wailers as an 8-year-old boy at Dad’s house in Malibu — not knowing who (or caring who!) these exotic guys with cool hats were — to eventually, 30 years later, discovering why they were there and finding and bringing this incredible footage to the world has been an extraordinary, challenging and ultimately unbelievably fulfilling journey. When I started working in A&R at Island my father always said to me, ‘film and photograph EVERYTHING.’ I know it’s different now, but I guess he had the right idea!” – Producer Barney Cordell
Bob Marley and the Wailers’ performance of “Slave Driver” from ‘The Capitol Session ’73’ is now available to watch on Bob Marley’s official YouTube channel.
