The Legendary Wailers - Live At Maritime Hall (2b1 Records)

It's amazing how long the Marley legacy has clung and survived, both Bob's and his offspring's. It's survived despite having The Wailers' tunes go from being played mostly at hippie gatherings to becoming frat party staples, and survived Ziggy Marley & Co's full-bore commercialisation of their music as well as their fathers'. Even though I've heard all of these songs hundreds of times, they're still pretty amazing. For a live disc-and especially a live reggae disc-none of these songs ever become tedious Grateful Dead-esque jam sessions. Not even the 10-minute version of 'Exodus', and that's my least favourite track here.
