A few days ago, the people over at Reggae & Jamaican film news announced the release of a “rare reggae documentary from 1975″. It will be offered as a limited edition dvd, each individually numbered and offered exlcusively via their website.

The film is supposed to feature scenes of Jack Ruby and I-Roy, clips of Bob Marley and the Wailers performing live on stage at Schaefer Music Festival, plus some early footage of Toots+The Maytals live in studio, as well as video recordings of some of the early record stores and observational footage shot on the streets of Kingston in 1974-75 which give “a window into Jamaican social history”.

Looking at the rest of the Reggae Films catalogue however, I´m not really sure what to expect but I´m curious to find out nevertheless.
