Product Description

Product Description

In December 1999 some of the most important figures in contemporary music united for an all-star concert in tribute to Bob Marley. Stars such as Lauryn Hill, Chrissie Hynde and Erykah Badu head the list of performers.

From Amazon.co.uk

Conceived with DVD release in mind, this high-end, live video concert taped in Jamaica lives up to its title with a generous repertoire of Bob Marley songs performed by reverent pop, hip-hop, rock and reggae veterans. Shot on a rainy night in December 1999, the home video version expands upon an inaugural TNT cable telecast with an additional hour of performances. The DVD edition adds a premium level of special features and exclusive content.

The music's the main thing, of course, and on that front One Love is uniformly respectful, orbiting around Marley's songs and infused with whiffs of his Rastafarian world view and reggae's broader Third World perspectives. Marley's family members serve as hosts and frequent collaborators, with a limber house band further reinforcing a coherent, communal element to the performances, and the titular all-stars immerse themselves in Marley's world. Lauryn Hill opens the concert with what is clearly one of its highest points, a joyful "Turn the Lights Down Low". Chrissie Hynde and Erykah Badu take turns duetting with Jimmy Cliff, and another reggae titan, Toots Hibbert, proves a perfect, ebullient fit with a current line-up of the Wailers. The celebrity choices include a conspicuous subset of American folk-rockers in Tracy Chapman, Ben Harper and Hootie and the Blowfish's Darius Rucker, with Chapman the most convincing in a glowing version of "Three Little Birds".

Avid reggae fans may be mildly frustrated by the overall crossover thrust of this homage, which favours Yankee rap and hip-hop (via Busta Rhymes and Queen Latifah) instead of home-grown dancehall; it tantalises us with glimpses of Marley's peers, like Cliff and Hibbert, while being largely occupied with sustaining its parade of non-reggae marquee names. For most viewers, though, the scope of the concert and the first-rate sonic finish will sustain the spell, an effect powerfully expanded on the superb DVD version. --Sam Sutherland, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Although compromised a little by the way the "all-star" cast changeover for each song, many genuinely good performances shine out, particularly Lauryn Hill, Tracey Chapman, and many of the Marley clan.
Approached as a good-time tribute concert, this DVD is very enjoyable, as are the "DVD extras", but don't be disappointed by the fact that every track doesn't sound as if Bob Marley himself was singing

This truly is showstopping i cannot describe in another way 19 Great Bob Marley song with every performer contributing in the songs one way or another.
A personal highlight for me has to be Erykah badu and Jimmy Cliffs Spine tingling version of 'o woman No cry'On the other hand if you want a really upbeat song you cannot go wrong with Busta Rhymes and julian Marleys verion of 'Rastman Chant'.Some songs from the 'Chant down Babylon' Cd like Erykah badu singing 'No More Trouble'.It opens with 'Turn ya lights down low' sung by Lauryn Hill.The Show comes to a breathtaking Climax with a 6 Minute version of could u be Loved sung by the Marley Family and it ends completly with a mass Singing of One Love.You have to see and hear this to beleive it.From the moment you order this you will be 'Waiting in Vain'

This is brilliant, if you love Bob Marley and all his songs you will love this. All the stars like Toots Hibbert, Jimmy Cliff, the I Threes and many more are here. They sing Bob's songs with so much love, the performance is just like being there and taking part. I think everyone will enjoy this DVD it's worth every penny. Fantastic !!
