One of the most important live reggae events ever, the One Love Peace Concert, on April 22, 1978, was organized to end the violence between Prime Minister Michael Manley’s socialist People's National Party (PNP) and Edward Seaga’s right-wing Jamaican Labor Party (JLP). It was the first concert appearance by Bob Marley after his attempted assassination, and culminates with Marley doing a rousing rendition of “Jammin’,” in which the superstar beckoned Manley and Seaga to the stage and held their hands together over the crowd.Heartland Reggaealso features other live performances, including a militant-as-ever Peter Tosh, a dynamic Jacob Miller fronting Inner Circle at the peak of their popularity, Dennis Brown and U-Roy both donning three-piece suits, and teen sensations Althea and Donna singing their number-one hit, “Uptown Top Ranking.”
