The Wonder Dream Concert held on October 4, 1975 at Kingston’s National Stadium was one of three events on the Holiday Jamaica package scheduled from September 29, 1975 through October 5, 1975.  The concert was a benefit for the Jamaican Institute for the Blind and featured Third World as the opening act. Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes were scheduled to play but did not show.

Third World, just back from a tour of the UK, opened their set with “Crying On The Rail Road Track” and followed with popular favorites “Sun Won’t Shine,” “Satta Massagana,” and “Slavery Days.”

The concert is often referred to as the Wailers Reunion Show, as it was the first time the original Wailers trio performed together since 1974.  It is the last time that all three founding members appeared live on-stage together.

The Wailers and the I-Three kick off their set with “Rastaman Chant”
