Bob Marley & the Wailers, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond and Big Youth were among the performers. As for footage of this historical concert: here’s a video in which Bob Marley sang Jammin’ and had rivaling political leaders Michael Manley and Edward Seaga shake hands after bringing them on stage.
