Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer

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.

Editorial Reviews

This expanded, two-CD collection features 24 tracks, all completely remastered to the highest modern standards. Included in addition to the original 10-song release is the non-LP track Smile Jamaica (the original B-side to the 'Satisfy My Soul' single written for the people of Jamaica after the assassination attempt on Marley s life at the Smile Jamaica unity concert in 1976). The second disc features the highly sought-after, unreleased live show, Live at Ahoy Hallen. This rare, unreleased audio recording of a sold out performance at Ahoy Hallen in Rotterdam, Netherlands on July 7, 1978 had originally been planned to be released with the 'Babylon By Bus' album but never came out. The Wailers were in top form that night, with stellar performances of 'Is This Love' and 'Easy Skanking' from the recently released 'Kaya,' album plus some of Marley's most beloved songs including 'Concrete Jungle,' 'No Woman No Cry,' 'War/No More Trouble,' 'Jamming,' 'I Shot The Sheriff,' 'Get Up,' 'Stand Up,' and the closing track 'Exodus,' all leaving the packed house in a frenzy. Packaged with the original artwork, Kaya: 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition comes with a 23-page booklet that includes lyrics, rare photos, plus extensive liner notes.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Deluxe April 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The deluxe editions circa early 2000 were fantastic. Unreleased tracks, alternate versions, and high quality live material. Kaya Deluxe is the weakest of the bunch. There is nothing new here. Smile Jamaica was on the original remaster. The Rotterdam 78' concert, while good, has been circulating for years. A quick youtube search would get you the complete show (they removed Crisis from this release!?). Another gripe is sub par the sound quality. Far from professionally remastered.
There are outstanding dubs and demos from the album that should have made the cut. This is a disappointment for the hardcore fan. Don't be lazy Island.

1.0 out of 5 stars what is this?!? July 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD
First, I must say that I love the original album. I would give it a 4 stars, but rate it 1 because this Deluxe boxset is a total joke. Is someone sleeping at Universal? Who approved that project? The concert is not even complet as two songs are missing. Universal could have used the empty space on the first disc or AT LEAST replace Smile Jamaica with one or two more bonus tracks from that area. There is quite a lot of things that could have been included on this. The best choice would have been to include RASTAMAN LIVE UP (original mix from 1978) and BLACKMAN REDEMPTION (original mix from 1978). Another good addition àcould have been the unremix version of I KNOW A PLACE and WHO COLT THE GAME (both recorded in 1978). The latest was included on the double CD of One Love-The Very Best in 2001. If Universal didn't want to give anything new to the fans they could simply have included IS THIS DUB, SHE'S GONE (dub version), SUN IS SHINING (edit version) or TIME WILL TELL (1981 Alternate Mix) (included on the Countryman Soundtrack). Here is a few gems that are still hiding in the vaults and that are being circulating among fans: SUN IS SHINING (dubplate), RUNING AWAY (dubplate), MISTY MORNING (dubplate 1), MISTY MORNING (dubplate 2), I KNOW A PLACE (dub version), WHO COLT THE GAME (dub version). EASY SKANKING (monitor mix), KAYA (monitor mix), IS THIS LOVE (monitor mix), SUN IS SHINING (monitor mix), SATISFY MY SOUL (monitor mix) (five different versions), SHE'S GONE (monitor mix), MISTY MORNING (monitor mix), CRISIS (monitor mix), RUNING AWAY (monitor mix). Come on guys, this is by far the weakest Deluxe Boxset released in the Marley catalogue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great album, not so great deluxe edition April 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Kaya is with no doubt a classic album that has stood the test of time. I was more than a little disappointed with this 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition mainly because it pales in comparison to the other fantastic Marley Deluxe Editions. The one bonus song is just another "version" of "Smile Jamaica". We already have two other versions of that song on the Rastaman Vibration Deluxe edition. The second cd may capture a good performance of the band but it sounds like crap. It sounds as though it was mastered from a very weak audio source or poor recording device. I really think that this is a money grab and at this price point we deserve better.

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 Great Sound April 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are plenty of reviews of the regular "Kaya" album, which is some of the more superb music Bob Marley ever made, so I will use this review to touch upon the differences of this deluxe edition and the original "Kaya" CD. First off, the first disc is simply the remastered "Kaya" CD. The sound is very crisp. I have the original CD (non-remastered), and I can say the bass on this CD has a better sound. It's more pronounced and harder, more like the vinyl version.

The second disc contains the live concert at Ahoy Hallen (Rotterdam, Netherlands) on July 7, 1978. The perfection that Bob demanded of his band during live performances comes through loud and clear in this concert. Bob and the Wailers sound very tight in every song. I had not previously heard this performance, so this disc has been a real treat for me. The version of "Easy Skanking" in the concert is easily the best one I've heard up to this point. There are several great live performances of "Exodus," but the one during this concert is incredible. Every single song is performed with near-perfection. You can tell that Bob and his band have really hit their stride at this point in their career.

The only nitpick I have with this package is that there is no clear plastic slipcase around the cardboard CD case. All of Bob Marley's previous deluxe editions have come with this slipcase. Again, that is perhaps being nitpicky, but it would have been nice to have the slipcase to better protect the cardboard case.

All in all, the deluxe edition of "Kaya" is a fine product. The concert disc alone is worth the money. The remastered original album is awesome for someone like me who is upgrading from the original CD release. I am looking forward to the release of the remaining deluxe editions of Bob Marley's albums, especially "Survival." Whoever has been doing the Bob Marley deluxe editions is doing a bang-up job.
