I was watching a bit of an interview with Bob Marley on youtube, that had russian subtitles all over it… and suddenly realised it was a piece of an interview by legendary NZ music journalist Dylan Taite (RIP) so a quick search & found where it had been taken from. Thanks to Peter McLennan for uploading this & many other otherwise lost kiwi gems..
Bob Marley ‘Come A Long Way’ documentary, made for NZ tv show ‘Good Day’, 1979.
Reporter: Dylan Taite, camera: Wayne Vinten, soundman: Tony Martindale, director: David Baldock, producer: Tony Hiles.
Features the band’s soundcheck at Western Springs (spot Paul Crowther helping the keyboard player), Bob and band getting a traditional Maori welcome (spot Murray Cammick w his camera), and Dylan Taite’s extensive interview with the reggae superstar. Taite pulled off the interview after apparently turning up at the band’s hotel (the White Heron in Parnell) with his football boots, ready to join in a game with Marley and his band.

Williams has been asked on numerous occasions whether a collaboration would have been sensible but, since neither party knew what the other was doing, the question didn’t arise” – hence the different psu and hole spacing….

Former Rackspace manager Rob La Gesse mentioned today: “To make FaceApp actually work, you have to give it permissions to access your photos – ALL of them. But it also gains access to Siri and Search …. Oh, and it has access to refreshing in the background – so even when you are not using it, it is using you.”
