Classic Documentary – Reggae Sunsplash 1979

This documentary is one of these underground motion pictures which are brilliant yet hard to find. Recorded in 1979 this movie shows live takes from the Montego Bay Sunsplash, presenting Burning Spear, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Peter Tosh and Third World. Alongside the concert clips are a  stash of artists interviews and snippets showing the environmental setting of jamaican music culture. This makes “Reggae by Bus”  a serious piece of roots reggae documentaries.

  1. I attended the festival in 1979. I would love to have an opportunity to buy the documentary video.
    Any chance of this happening?

    Many regards,
