Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer


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 A rare side of a legendary band February 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Kaya, was recorded at the same time as Exodus. 25 or so tracks were recorded and 2 albums were to be made. Exodus contained many of the harder songs, but also had some softer songs, but not as many here. for the Kaya album there were 15 tracks left, and the 10 originally released in 1978 were Love songs, and Homages to the Power of ganja. The band shows a rare different side that is actually quite beautiful. Out of all the Bob Marley and the Wailers album's this album sticks out in my mind because it is so much different than the others. the entire catalogue is unique, but Kaya really leaves a long lasting impression. everyone knows the song "Is this Love?", but many of the other songs are classics and should not be over looked. Sun is Shining, Kaya, Time Will Tell, Easy Skanking, and Running Away are all very good songs. If you are looking for something more unique and different this album is most certainly for you. If you are going to have a reggae collection, you shouldn't pass up on this recording because it is a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marley's least political, most relaxed album August 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sonically, this is easily Marley's best album (just listen to "Sun is Shining" on headphones -- wow). And subject wise, Bob sticks with subjects like being in love, dancing, and getting high. Actually , the pre-iconic Marley had recorded many of these songs many years before (the earlier versions can be heard on the African Herbsman LP, among others). So in many ways, this record was a return to Marley's past. And he was obviously in a fine mood while making Kaya. A "sunny day" record, to say the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mystical, Ingenious Testament to the Poetry of Music December 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Kaya" was Bob Marley's soft, beautiful, and melodic follow up to the "Exodus" album of 1977. Released in 1978, "Kaya" was meant to coidncide with the One Love Peace Concert held in April of that year. While "Rastaman Vibration," and to a greater extent, "Exodus," were fiercly sociopolitical and religious, "Kaya" dealt more with homage to the power of ganja (marijuana) and romantic love. One thing "Kaya" and "Exodus" do have in common is the strong spirituality, but "Kaya" takes this in a softer direction. The album even sparked Bob Marley & the Wailers' first World Tour, some of which can be heard on the live "Babylon By Bus" album released later that year.

Each song is a classic, from the slow and steady "Easy Skanking," to the soothing "Time Will Tell". Some of the most notable tracks on the album are the tracks "Is This Love" and "Satisfy My Soul" both featured on the "Legend" compilation. Another is the remake of the roots classic "Sun Is Shining," originally done with Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh in the late 60's-early 70's as was the title track "Kaya" (meaning "marijuana"), an ode to the herb used so reverently by Marley in his lifetime. Two very key songs speak of the assassination attempt aimed at him in 1976: the dark and somber "Running Away," and the forgiving, spiritual "Time Will Tell". Finally, the bonus track "Smile Jamaica [Version]" is a danceable classic, showing the lighter and more playful side of Marley's music. This album is sure to delight every fan with each song again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Marley Album Ever! July 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
now that does sounds like a pretty risky statement, but in my opinion this is the best album. i have all of bob's cd's, but i have to say that no matter what i always come back to this one. With tracks like "is this love", "satisfy my soul" and the spectacular "Misty Morning" you just cant go wrong. but dont by any means think those are the only good songs on this album, because everyone is just perfect. this is an album where there is no skipping tracks needed. the whole cd plays like one giant beautiful opus. if you are just getting into marley i would reccomend "Legend" first, but this would suck you into his beautiful little world also. for those of you with just Legend and you want to expand more into the Rasta mans' music, this would be a perfect selection.
what are you waiting for??? go out and by this NOW!!

5.0 out of 5 stars After at least twenty years... December 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
... of listening to this album, I believe I am qualified to say that it is an underrated great classic that will one day be recognised as Marley's finest. Every song on the album is great. My favorites are Is This Love, She's Gone, and Misty Morning, but they are all of outstanding quality. Instrumentally the whole thing is perfect, and the remastering makes it even better. If I had to pare my collection of 250 CDs down to only 5, this one would easily make the cut--it is that good.
If, however, you are offended by references to smoking marijuana, then Bob Marley is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Marley's Smoothest Efforts February 2, 2007
By Riley
Format:Audio CD
Kaya is a pleasure from start to finish. As usual, the remastering further enhances the listening experience.

And again this album is full of Marley songs the average listener has probably not heard. Well worth the money.

5 Stars all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Prophet of Reggae... March 18, 2006
By Ziggy
Format:Audio CD
A classic. This album is when Bob Marley crossed over into "Love Songs" from his prolific "Rebel Yell" style of writing and singing. The reviews of 'Kaya' were critical and angry at first due this surprising revelation. This man was and still is the epitomi of his religion and country.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Must Have this album or else!!! March 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
THis album is the best way to start your Bob Marley some say its better to buy one of the greatest hits albums like 'Legend' or 'One Love', but this album is by far the best of most Bob Marley's albums but all are good. In this album you hear the reble spirt of Bob Marley in songs such as 'Kaya'. Kaya which is the bud of the marawana plant. The sounds and rythems in this album are amazing. So you MUST BUY this ALBUM!!
