i came across a very nice document, original poster from 1973-11-24
Bob Marley & The Wailers, Live At Manchester Polytechnic University , Manchester , England.
you have to know that there was only 200 people in the crowd for this concert , who was part of the 1973 Burnin’ England Tour.
about this concert, The Wailers shared the bills with OK Disco and Ingroville.
for the little note:
‘ Their tour bus was driving over Snake Pass to Leeds Students Union & it started snowing. They’d not seen this before and Bob thought it was message from Jah’.

I was the keyboard player for Ingroville and I remember it well. The Wailers had the dressing room next door and we were attracted by the smell of ganja from their room. After we played our set I stood and watched from the side of the stage. They were incredible, I had never heard anything like it. A great night!
And who knew, I later went on to work with the likes of Desmond Dekker, Sugar Minott and Horace Andy!
amazing 🙂 thank you very much for taking the times to share your experience with us 🙂
