Jamaica 1982 [no label, 4CD]

The three-day Jamaica World Music Festival (Nov 25-27) in 1982 featLive at the Jamaica World Music Festival, Montego Bay, Jamaica; November 25-27, 1982. Very good soundboard.

The three-day Jamaica World Music Festival (Nov 25-27) in 1982 featured 22 acts including the Grateful Dead, the Beach Boys, Skeeter Davis, the B-52s, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin and Joe Jackson.

According to, the festival was created by Denver, Colorado entrepreneur Barry Fey, and his Feyline Productions Company. In return for the rights to develop some of Montego Bays rocky beaches, Fey promised annual festivals at this open air stage for the next
three years, but this promise was sadly unkept.

Thanks to Charlie Miller (transfers and mastering) and to Orphic1 for sharing the tracks on Dime. Orphic1 notes: “I’d like to thank Charlie for converting my masters. A true labor of love for which I am very thankful!… Thanks to Frank Streeter for lending me his masters… Deadicated to the memories of Bill Bradt, Irving Goodfellow, David Sobel, Doug Eiss and John Mutterperl. Thanks guys. It never would have happened without you…”

  7. Aretha Franklin’s 11.26.82 performance from this Festival has already been made available on BigO in 192 kbps. From the notes: “Apparently, this show was professionally recorded and the source of this is a cassette taped from the soundboard.
    Franklin’s voice was still stellar and she had a hot band.”
    It certainly was a good show by Aretha, focused on what she was singing at the time.

  8. It is sad to mention that there is still rubble in the streets and ruins of buildings in Haiti today, so long after the quake. The relief agencies have failed, due to the teams spending billions going in and doing for Haitians, rather than encouraging the people of Haiti by hiring them to do the work. We received an in-person report from Tony Campolo, a close friend of the Clintons, who admitted the failure in tactics since the quake. Billions spent and no effect, the money gone and unaccounted for. They have revamped their methods to get the people of Haiti involved in their own recovery. If you wish, search under Tony Campolo and contribute, knowing that it will be very effective help.
    Of course, in USA, we need the same, like WPA and CCC etc under FDR.

  12. Never heard this one before. A great show with excellent sound by one of my favorite bands. Thanks for the post. Track 16, I Fought The Law, seems to jump/skip about 15 seconds in. May be the result of a defect in the upload process or from the source tape? In any case, this is superb. Many thanks BigO.

  18. I picked up an excellent copy of the B-52s set from the SB at this show in 1984. Very enjoyable early show. It is a great piece of history though I’d love to see the video. I have yet to see it on vinyl or CD either.The cassette is preserved in my archive collection but when I die will end up in a land fill along with 2,000 other shows.
