From The Guardian
Live recordings of Bob Marley and the Wailers, which were found by chance after spending 40 years in a damp hotel basement, are to appear at auction.
The reel-to-reel analogue tapes were recovered during the clearance of a hotel in Little Venice, west London, but, with water damage, mould and grime oozing out, they looked beyond repair and were going to be binned.
But after a two-year restoration by a sound engineer, Martin Nichols, the 10 tapes will be auctioned off next month.
The recordings were of 1970s gigs at the Lyceum theatre in the West End of London, the Rainbow theatre in Finsbury Park, and the Pavillon Baltard in Paris. They include some of Marley’s greatest hits including No Woman No Cry, Is This Love and Jamming.
