Bob Marley Live from Rotterdam

Back in the day, I had an amazing Bob Marley bootleg on tape from Holland's Ahoy Club. It was a a really crisp SBD -- especially considering it was recorded in 1978. Well, I lost the tape (left it in a friend's car and it got "lost") and vowed to try to get another copy of the show if at all possible.

After years of searching, I finally found it! I thought I'd post some highlights for anyone who wants to take a listen.

Sounds like the Acoustic Medley that's on disc two (the best disc btw) of the Songs of Freedom box set. It's just Bob and his guitar playing "Guava Jelly/This Train/Cornerstone/Comma Comma/Dewdrops/Stir It Up/I'm Hurting Inside"
