A road trip with Bob Marley is in order

When the top is down and it's warm outside, sometimes there's nothing better than a little Bob Marley to heighten the drive experience.

While the reggae artist never made too many live CDs, a never-released live concert has been released as an album.

"Live Forever" by Bob Marley and the Wailers was recorded on September 23, 1980 at the Stanley Theatre in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The two-disc set has 20 tracks - perfect for those longer drives that record full album experiences.

Perhaps listen to "Live Forever" while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway in southern California. You'll see the ocean on one side and emerald-green mountains on the other as tracks like "Jamming," "Positive Vibration" and "Get Up Stand Up" play live in the background.

It's almost as if Bob is on the road trip with you as he addresses the listeners often and goes off into uncharted territory with his own lyrics.

What could be better than driving in the land of the free, listening to Bob Marley preach about happiness?

"This spectacular audio documentary Live Forever, also immortalizes the last song Marley ever performed live in concert: "Get Up Stand Up," his rally cry for equality," says Amazon.com critics.
