The Jamaica World Music Festival in Montego Bay on Nov 27, 1982 was part of a 3 day event that combined rock, pop, soul and reggae artists. The festival never became the annual event it was hoped to become, but lucky for fans most of the show has become available to collectors.  Some of the other bands that played at the festival included The Clash, The Grateful Dead, Aretha Franklin, The Talking Head, The English Beat, Toots and The Maytals, Rita Marley and The Melody Makers, and the historic and controversial set from Peter Tosh. Here in its complete form is the wicked set from Black Uhuru who were in top form in 1982.  This recording comes from the master tape so it is as good as quality you can get without a studio remaster. I will feature other sets from some of the other artists in future posts.
