Bob Marley Live at Pittsburgh's Stanley Theater by Adam Welsh

The show was on September 23, 1980 and it proved to be Bob Marley's last. If you've never heard it, now you have the chance. From Pitchfork...

"In September 1980, reggae godhead and future dorm-room staple Bob Marley played his last recorded show at Pittsburgh's Stanley Theatre; cancer killed him less than a year later. A new double-CD/triple-LP release features that entire final show. UMe/Tuff Gong International will release Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, September 23, 1980 on February 1.

I had no idea Bob Marley played his last show in Pittsburgh, and I definitely didn't know that the Stanley Theater was for a time the #1 concert venue in the country. Very impressive. Anyone out there go to a show at the Stanley in its heyday?
