Biography

Bob Marley was a hero figure, in the classic mythological sense. His departure from this planet came at a point when his vision of One World, One Love -- inspired by his belief in Rastafari -- was beginning to be heard and felt. The last Bob Marley and the Wailers tour in 1980 attracted the largest audiences at that time for any musical act in Europe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meksykanin 24 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
rather poor quality, hmm like cassette 22 kHz, no like today standards 44 kHz for CD. Of course you can find well-known songs on this cd but hmm with different titles.
If you are looking for first BoB cd go and buy "Legend [Extra tracks] [Original recording remastered]".

3.0 out of 5 stars Background music 8 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
These are all the lesser know tracks and is OK for some background music with a reggae feel but is not what I'd call "Classics"

3.0 out of 5 stars Info for new Bob fans and punters 4 Aug 2012
By Greg A.
Format:Audio CD
As I haven't bought this album; I'm not sure of the quality of the product, however do not believe Meksykanin as he is obviously not a fan. These are early pre-Tuff Gong tracks that bob and the wailers recorded; some have different names to the later releases, but he often recorded and rerecorded. This is one of several hundred releases of the same selection of music; so do not be fooled by the title 'A LEGEND' If you want his best known songs then buy 'LEGEND' rather than this release, but, if you wish to move on and buy some of his earlier, less known songs then be careful. As i have not bought this particular album, I recommend 'Trenchtown Rock'

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trenchtown-Rock-Anthology-1969-78-2CD/dp/B00005UD07/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1344087424&sr=1-1

which is possibly the best quality set available. Also, for his even earlier work with rocksteady, buy 'Wail'n Soul'm Singles Selecta'

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wailn-Singles-Selecta-Marley-Wailers/dp/B000AA5X20/ref=pd_sim_m_h__1

which has a nice little selection for very little money. My main point is that there are literally thousands of sets of the great man's pre-tuff gong music, so don't be fooled by this set and always check the reviews.

Whew!

Format:Audio CD
Not Now Music, (in)famous for their "out of copyright" 50 year old reissues that cut the artists and labels out and amount to legalized bootlegs, now does their magic for Bob Marley. These recordings are not 50 years old, so presumably a payment was made to someone somewhere. However, this is the pre-Island Marley, and these are the same tracks that have been issued and reissued endlessly over the years. This isn't bad stuff, but it's mostly missing the magic of Marley's deservedly much more famous Island output.

A serious Bob Marley fan will assuredly want this material, but it has been available many times previously, with better presentation and better sound. There's really no reason to buy this box.

Oh, and extra demerits for creating a cover that is suggestive of the famous "Legend" hits collection covering his Island years and even placing the title "Legend" (as in A Legend) on the cover to dupe the unknowning.
