Lost Bob Marley Recordings Restored

Recordings of two Bob Marley concerts that were believed to have been lost were found and restored after having spent more than 40 years in the basement of a run-down London hotel before being discovered during a building cleanout. The original tapes, which were thought to have been destroyed from water damage, featured recordings from Marley’s performances in London and Paris in the 1970s. “They were [in an] appalling [condition] ... I wasn’t too hopeful,” a sound engineer told the BBC.
