The Definitive Remasters.

Island 50th Anniversary Edition with 28 page booklet.

The classic Marley album, and the one that any fair-weather reggae fan owns, Legend contains 16 of his greatest songs, running the gamut from "I Shot the Sheriff" to the meditative "Redemption Song" and the irrepressible "Three Little Birds." Also included are 2 bonus tracks - "Easy Skanking" & "Punky Reggae Party".

Some may argue that the compilation shortchanges his groundbreaking early ska work or his status as a political commentator, but this isn't meant to be definitive, it's meant to be an introduction, sampling the very best of his work. And it does that remarkably well, offering all of his genre-defying greats and an illustration of his excellence, warmth, and humanity.

In a way, it is perfect since it gives a doubter or casual fan anything they could want. Let's face it, the beauty and simplicity of Marley's music was as important as his message, and that's captured particularly well here.

Even as greatest hits packages go, Legend is an utter gem. Every song is inspired, in a class of its own.

External Reviews

". . . every song is inspired, in a class of its own, whether the proper 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.

" . . . can't wait for summer to come then I can blast this out of my front window. Every household should have some Marley in their collection. What a joy to listen to, Don't worry about a thing people." - Google Review.
