Great job on the review. Good review to an awesome album. I need to get this soon. I found my copy of this today. Cant get enough of this album man. Great stuff. Love this album. Every song on here is so easy to listen to. This is definitly one of my favorite albums with out a doubt. I love Bob Marley. Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend 5. I'm very tempted to launch straight into a track by track here, because Bob Marley genuinely needs no introduction. He remains one of the most iconic figures in the history of music, a political icon, Jamaica's most loved son, and reggae's biggest star by a MASSIVE margin.

Released Tuff Gong Records. It quickly became the biggest-selling reggae album of all time, and it remains so to this day. Accordingly, the vast majority of the songs here have passed into the public consciousness so completely that you'll be able to sing the chorus to them despite never having knowingly heard them before.

Is This Love Originally on Kaya. Over 7 minutes in length, this is possibly Marley's most famous song. By the time Marley is insisting that everything's gonna be alright, it's impossible to feel anything other than relaxed euphoria. Oh, by the way, the guitar solo is excellent. The bubbly guitar line drives the track throughout, which actually draws attention away from the rest of the band in the verses.

Still, the chorus is world-beating, and the bridge, which draws female backing vocalists into the mix, is great. Three Little Birds Originally on Exodus. Though the hook obviously repeats No Woman, No Cry, it's not a problem. This is just as joyous, wonderous, and euphoric I can see myself using that word a lot in this review. At 3 minutes it actually feels a little on the short side, but that doesn't detract from its power.

Buffalo Soldier Originally on Confrontation. Bob never lived to see this one released - Confrontation was a posthumous compilation of finished, unreleased Bob marley material issued by Rita Marley the year before Legend.

It's one of Marley's bigger hits because of this, but you'd be pretty off-base to claim this wouldn't have been viewed as vintage Marley if he'd still been alive when it was released. Co-written with Wailer Peter Tosh, it's occasionally seen as anti-religious, it actually only attacks hypocrites who hide behind their religion observe the awesome second verse , and encourages free thinking.

An anthem - possibly THE anthem - of Rastafarianism. Which, really, is fitting - it's a succinct summation of Marley's spirituality. The People Get Ready section is apparently a cover of the Curtis Mayfield track of the same name, but I don't hear it here. Even so, this is the lowpoint of the album for me.

Waiting In Vain Originally on Exodus. The opening line - 'I don't wanna wait in vain for your love' is heartbreaking, and so is the guitar solo. To say that any song on Legend is underrated is pushing it, but this comes close. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods.

Originally released as a compilation of 13 videos on gold-certified VHS, the release now contains a minute documentary titled Time. If you are expecting just the videos for the tracks on Bob Marley's extremely successful greatest hits CD , you are going to be pleasantly surprised with this DVD.

Legend is much more than a simple, video anthology. It is a historical telling of the music of Bob Marley presented in 23 videos, most of which are performances, and a minute documentary. The documentary is a collage of images and video clips put to a running dialogue by Marley. Unless you are very familiar with the Jamaican dialect, it is recommended to watch this with the subtitles turned on.

Interesting, but there are better documentaries out there e. It is the live performances, however, that make this DVD worth its weight in gold. Every person remotely interested in his music owes it to himself to witness Bob Marley perform on stage. Musically, Marley is as close to perfection as any artist can hope to achieve. But as a performer, he transcends beyond the secular pop star status to the mythic leader of a movement. They are simply hypnotic. A nice feature is the "playlist," allowing the viewer to play the videos in any order desired.

All in all, a great package for a true legend. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
