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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfy Your Soul 17 Jun 2010
By Supertzar TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Can't believe there's no review of this.

Like many people, I love a lot of the stuff on Legend but wasn't sure where to explore next. Some of the stuff on that album is a bit too polished and commercial for me - or maybe I've just heard the tracks too often. I tried and enjoyed both Natural Mystic and Live! but still thought there must be more out there that hit the spot.

This is the album I needed. It's absolutely wonderful. The instrumentation is similar to his most famous recordings, the tunes are as catchy and the beat very familiar. Many songs here would be rerecorded for his Island albums, but here they are in their Lee Scratch Perry produced earthy glory. Concrete Jungle, Natural Mystic, Sun is Shining, Keep on Moving, Soul Shakedown Party, Jah is Mighty, Soul Rebel and many more here are just excellent songs and deserved to be as widely known as later chaff like Is This Love or One Love.

The CD comes with a great bonus DVD - Bob's 1979 open air Santa Barbara concert, which, reviews elsewhere will tell you is one of Bob's best recorded concerts. A bizarre set to put with his pre-Island recordings, but very welcome nonetheless.

It's Bob Marley, what more can I say. I got this with the additional DVD. It's a brilliant album and DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! 5 Feb 2008
By Kyle Bloomstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For any Bob Marley fans this is a must have. Listen to original versions of many classic tracks as well as some very rare material as well. The second disc features a lot of peter tosh songs. Anyway, for the price I saw this listed at, buy it imediately, you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars early stuff on cd...later stuff on dvd 19 Nov 2005
By J. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i've always loved the old Wailers material, their rough and raw jamaican edge and slick sweeet vocal harmonies have such a powerful effect. this collection features some of the great Lee Perry produced stuff from 1970 and 1971 like "Duppy Conqueror" & "Mr. Brown." i'm sure all of this material has been released several hundreds of times throughout the years, but this compilation serves as a nice introduction to the early years of this musical giant. the dvd is a live show from 1980 on the Survival tour and is a nice addition to the set.

Let me make it clear my man like this music and I really dont listen to rap or reggae, So when ever I buy this type of music it is for him. He is a very big fan of this artist and he plays this album all the time so from him to you this cd is great :).
