Mercury Studios (formerly Eagle Rock Entertainment) has partnered with Tuff Gong to resurrect a classic performance by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
The companies are scheduled to release The Capitol Session ’73 Sept. 3 on DVD/CD, CD, 2LP, and digital platforms. Pre-orders are open now.
According to information provided, the performance featured in the forthcoming release was originally captured in October 1973 at Capitol Records by famed producer Denny Cordell. The concert came a decade after the group’s formation, the information states.
The process of locating and restoring the footage for this concert took more than two decades. Archives and storage units the world over were searched for the footage prior to its restoration, showing just how much time and effort was taken to unearth and restore it all.
In anticipation of the concert’s release, Tuff Gong and Mercury Studios have released a trailer of one of the songs performed at the intimate recording. It is streaming here.
