Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Even as greatest hits packages go, Legend is an utter gem. Every song is inspired, in a class of its own, whether the real version of "I Shot the Sheriff", the hymnlike "No Woman, No Cry" or the sheer joy of "Jamming". Even allowing that Marley never wrote any bad material, Legend is still the crème de la crème, the heart and soul of the Jamaican people packed into one five-inch compact disc. He was unique and the message of this record, more than any other, is that he died far too soon. --Chris Nickson

This album is aptly named; Bob Marley's music has touched the world, and this compilation does even more justice to his brilliance than the original release of "Legend" -- better, crisper sound and "Exodus," in its complete form. There was never an excuse for having the shorter version of this great song on this album and it always took away from the album for me but now Legend is the perfect album. This reissue has improved and the sound is great, all the lyrics and a good essay on Bob, and the 2 new "Bonus" tracks is a great addition to this package. "Exodus" is the best reason to toss your old "Legend" aside.

Everyone knows all the great songs from this great man. With sweet songs like "Is This Love, "No Woman, No Cry" (a recording of the famous live performance), and the empowering "Get Up Stand Up." There is a song for nearly any mood. It seems that EVERYONE, whether they're into hip-hop or rock or country can dig Bob Marley. Not many artists can do what he had done. That being said, this album is just about the most versatile disc conceivable. Feeling a little low - just play "Three Little Birds" or "Is This Love?" Need some music to get your party started? play the infectious "Jamming" and "Could You Be Loved" will do the trick. Looking to chill out with your significant other? "Waiting in Vain" (just about the most beautiful song ever conceived) or "Stir It Up" will set the mood straight.

Most of the tracks on this album are songs that were paramount for Bob Marley and the Wailers' career in the seventies and eighties. Bob Marley's "Legend" is an excellent album, definitely a must have.

Bob Marley is a figure that attracts attention from any music lover.
Leading and popularizing the entire Reggae genre, Bob Marley's music and persona are larger than life. He tackles themes of inequality and Rastafarian doctrines in his lyrics to energetic, heartfelt songs.
The CD opens with "Is this Love", as the bouncing and almost funky guitar make way to Bob Marley's lovely voice. Just a fun song to listen to while chilling. The best part of the song is the verse.
"No Woman No Cry" is a live cut, and a change of mood, to soft and poignant. Very simple the whole way through, it's not his best song but an important classic nonetheless.
"Could You be Loved" has this amazing energy, a kicking beat. The switch between relative major and minor tonality is an example of Marley's ability to naturally elicit emotion through the music. When he gets to the part "Could You be Loved, and be loved", you are forced to feel it.
"Three Little Birds" is a great song to with great harmonies from the ladies. A nice arrangement by Bob, and another great message from Bob.
"Buffalo Soldier" is a cool song, one of my favorites. Great instrumentals from the band.
"Get Up Stand Up" is a song that describes Bob's answer to much of the injustice in Jamaica and the world. Meaningful and funky, Marley means business.
"One Love" is a lasting melody that you've surely heard on resort commercials, such as Sandals. It speaks Carribean.
"Shot the Sherrif", covered by Eric Clapton, is a strange song. Original concept. It is one of the most bouncing, so I like it. Bob goes all out vocally as well. Nice vocal effects too.
"Waiting in Vain" is cool. Very relaxed. Almost has an American R&B feel to it. Very chill. A nice fadeout at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic tracks Aug. 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
Whether you are a reggae fan or not, you've got to love the works of Bob Marley, the man is a genius. This is an excellent compilation, every track a classic. From the party classic 'Jamming' to the universal anthem 'One Love/People Get Ready', the gorgeous, beautiful acoustic 'Redemption Song' and the tender 'No Woman No Cry', this CD is loaded with brilliant songs. It is really worth owning, one of the greatest Greatest Hits. However, as always, some essential Marley tracks are missing: 'Sun Is Shining', 'Rainbow Country', 'Lively Up Yourself', 'Kaya' and 'Trenchtown Rock'. Of these 5, only 2 are actually included on the One Love CD, the other Marley greatest hits, so competition is stiff, especially as the version of 'Redemption Song' is far superior and 'Satisfy My Soul' is left off One Love altogether.
Overall, this is a great Marley compilation to buy for any music fan at all, loaded with classics, but its worth buying other albums for several other tracks.

While I would be ecstatic to have read that all the Island/Tuff Gong Marley titles were getting released instead of this "Best Of" collection, I'll take what I can get. UMe announced the Soundgarden and Marley titles within a week of each other, two brand new mixes. Where the Soundgarden fails in almost all respects this one shines. Those familiar with rock/pop SA-CD releases will perhaps be familiar with Bob Clearmountain's surround capabilities via the excellent and almost universally praised Roxy Music Avalon SACD.

I'm hard pressed to find a single bad song in the Island releases from Catch A Fire/Burnin' in 1973 through to the post-humous 1983 release Confrontation. I would love Clearmountain to be tasked with surround mixes of all these. There is much discrete activity on this disc, something that should be easy to do given all the percussion in Marley's music. The bass seems more controlled on most songs than on some of the albums and some are different versions, Easy Skankin' is not the same mix as found on Kaya for example and the studio No Woman shows up here instead of the live, I have read it surmised that this was due to only the studio multitracks being available for this one.

For some peculiar reason UMe have released a "hot" mix for the stereo high resolution track instead of the lovely dynamic one available on HD Track and Qobuz. Skip the stereo track, head directly to the 5.1 mix which is the star here and is absolutely lovely and dynamic. I cannot describe just how much better Exodus sounds in surround, this is the defining moment of the disc for me. The breadth of the sound is huge, massively opened up in surround.
