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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album but poor bit rate mp3s 13 April 2013
By Rory
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
First off this is a great album, so I have no problem with the music its self, but I cannot believe I have just bought and downloaded it, and it's all variable bit rate!! I never even thought to check! I didn't realise any sites were selling anything less than 320kbps mp3s. Yeah it's fine for listening to on a pair of ear bud headphones, but for playing in dj sets on big sound systems its not so great. Come on Amazon, get with the times or at least put a notice saying what the bit rate is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Marley 16 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first purchased a Marley album (Catch A Fire) in 1973 and have bought everything he issued since on vinyl and then CD so I hope I can be regarded as a fan. Quite simply buying this cd revived my interest in his original work and the plethora of remixes that have been issued in recent years. This must count as the best of the bunch, although I grant you I have not heard them all.
I would go so far as to say that this is an essential purchase for any Marley fan and would serve as great introduction to anyone unsure of the worth of remix versions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Re-Introduction to the Legend 2 Aug 2007
By CoolPoet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to Bob's music I am pretty reserved about remixes and remakes of Bob's stuff. Nothing is like the orignial and nothing will ever be. I have heard some attempts at remixes, dubs and remakes and with the exception of Stephen Marley's work on "Chant Down Babylon" none of them have really hit the mark. This album is in my opinion a huge leap forward in the right direction. The tracks are really groovy and while a few tracks come close to Dubs it's not really a Dub by raw definition. The tracks also flow together really well up untill the last 3 tracks, and are lackluster in their feel and sound. They sound like album fillers. If you are looking for some good lounge/groove music this is a great CD and for Marley Collectors and fans such as myself I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roots Rock Remixed 26 Sep 2007
By T. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big fan of Bob Marley for quite awhile now and I am always skeptical of any "remixes" of his works. Marley's songs are so perfect and beautiful that I usually feel that they should never be touched.

So while I've been burned in the past on previous reworkings of Marley's music, this "Roots, Rock, Remixed" is actually really good! The songs are basically left intact and are not cut up/sliced & diced to the point where they're unrecognizable. All of the songs have basically been updated with better beats.

If you're a fan of dub, downtempo, chillout you should enjoy this. The remixers did a great job of not making the beats sound too modern/ futuristic to the point where they don't go well with the original songs. Overall a really great remix album that does justice to Bob's songs. It's good for hanging out/ chilling out/ relaxing/ de-stressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irie remixes! Soundtrack to the summer 9 Aug 2007
By sweeet pants! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Thank you Tuff Gong! Nearly all the other Marley remixes I've heard have been atrocious, but this album hits the spot. The whole idea of remixing has its roots in Jamaican music so it makes total sense that Marley would finally get a good remix treatment.

For the most part, the remixers treat the tracks with great respect, adding a danceable thump or some stoney dub in just the right places. "Duppy Conqueror" sounds to me like a pop hit with a great sing-along chorus. "Sun Is Shining" is a fantastic slice of downtempo dub. "Soul Shakedown Party" and "Soul Rebel" are great fun for the dance floor as well. A few tracks go further than just tasteful modernizing. Jimpster's "400 Years" is a particular favorite, a dubbed out tech house makeover so hypnotic I keep hitting repeat.

But overall, this record is just plain fun. I'm sure these tracks would sound good pumping from a club, but I've enjoyed just chilling out with it on in my apartment. It's high on my list for the soundtrack to the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 13 Aug 2007
By Cindy F. Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, if you don't have a compilation of the Wailer's Studio One songs, get one of those first. If you have been listening to old school Wailers for a while now, read on.

This is sweet. These are all different versions of the Wailers' classics during their Studio One days. I would classify the style of music as more experimental, dub/dance/techno-like versions than the originals. Rainbow Country is my favorite (DJ Spooky did an AWESOME job with the bass and drums in particular). Other standout tracks were Soul Shakedown Party, Don't Rock My Boat, and Small Axe. One Love is actually taken from a song the Wailers called "All In One" and has snippets of Bend Down Low, Nice Time, and Simmer Down on it. The only songs I didn't like were Trenchtown Rock and 400 Years because they are a little too techno and didn't have enough vocals on them to keep me entertained. The rest of the songs are worth having though. I would recommend this to anyone who has been listening to the Wailers' Studio One stuff for quite a few years (like I have) and just want a new take on them. Its not just an attempt to cash in on Bob's music. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This may just burn out my media player... 28 Oct 2007
By John Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sitting in my living room, jamming to this album. I'm worried that my car stereo, or computer, may get fried eventually with all the spinning this has done inside. The only thing that I think is missing, is that more songs weren't remixed. This album just isn't as big as it should have been. I read the other reviews on here and agree with most of what they had to say, this is a great album.
Many other remixes of Bob's stuff, just don't do him justice, but this album, I believe Bob would be happy with. Most tracks stay very true to the original sounds, while still keeping things new and fresh. Now there are a couple of tracks that stray way far from how they originally sounded, in that they can now be considered, minimal, or progressive house, but those two tracks, they just happen to be my favorites on the album.
This shouldn't be passed up by those new to Bob, or anyone that's been a fan.
