Format:Audio CD
There is a reason that Legend is the best selling reggae album of all time - simply put, it contains 14 (now 16+) of the best tracks of the best artist of the entire genre. The music on this CD will take you to another place, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The Legend album is an essential component to any music collection.
This expanded edition is great for serious Marley fans and collectors, but is not highly recommended for casual fans. The second disc is full of remixes and expanded versions that are definite treats and quite enjoyable, but not essential listening. If you are new to reggae and only want the absolute best, stick with the single disc remastered version of Legend - which is improved over the original version by adding two key bonus tracks - Easy Skanking and Punky Reggae Party (both well deserving to be included as some of Marley's best tracks) - and superior remastered sound. It's cheaper and provides the essential look at the Legend of Bob Marley. Even if you're a casual fan who is loaded and don't mind shelling out big bucks for music, I would recommend that you splurge and get the Songs of Freedom 4 CD set, which provides a more comprehensive overview of the artist's entire career than this 2 CD set.
The liner notes of the expanded edition (and the single disc remastered edition) consist of a 28 page booklet containing the lyrics to the 16 tracks on the first CD. The lyrics are helpful to new fans of Marley, as his Jamaican accent can have you wondering what exactly he is singing about.
One Love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential March 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The basics :
1. Remastered sound quality is excellent.
2. CD 1 : 2 additional tracks : "Easy Skanking" and "Punky Reggae Party". Worthwhile.
3. CD 1 : "Exodus" and "Stir It Up" are now the longer LP versions rather than the edited singles. Good move.
4. CD 2 : Extended remixes from 1980's 12-inch singles. generally excellent with a few duds ("Buffalo Soldiers" ala disco).
Summary : A significant upgrade from an already-excellent release. A worthwhile purchase even if you already own the first CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Isn't Always Better January 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Bob Marley is a Legend and I don't use the term often or ligthly. In fact, the original version of Legend was an excellent selection of his work. The only flaw with the original Legend was that there were some additional songs that should have been included. The Deluxe Edition of Legend, however, doesn't enhance the experience of listening to Bob Marley's music it only makes it take longer to finish.

The first disc of the Deluxe Edition of Legend includes the live version of "No Woman, No Cry." This would have been a great choice for disc two. The original single version, which was on "Legend" is a much better fit with the studio hits that the listener is accustomed to. Disc Two which has all of the extended versions of Bob Marley's hits wasn't necessary or interesting. The songs lost their core integrity because there were too many ill placed musical interludes that the artist himself hadn't used. Some of the songs on disc two seemed endless. I've never listened to Bob Marley and wondered when a song was going to end before. But on several of my favorite Bob Marley songs I found myself wondering when they would end. The mixes and re-mixes on disc two did nothing to enhance the Legend of a great artist.

If disc one had followed the format of the lp version of Legend, adding a few additional studio cuts, my rating would have been much higher. I'm sure I would have rated it four stars at the very least. Bob Marley was a true genius but the elongated mixes that comprise most of the second disc fail to display that genius. More isn't always better, sometimes it feels like too much.

This is a huge warning to all Bob Marley fans in Europe!!!!!!

There is a big mistake on this Legend Deluxe release!!! I guess someone has been sleeping / or didnt do his job well.... cause, One Love (Extended Version) and One Love (Dub) are the same!

They added 2 times the extended version istead of the great very rare 1984 Dub version! This One Love Dub is missing! What a huge mistake, and a big big big big shame!

Only in Europe, cause I do own the US release which does the right tracklisting! So including the One Love dub version! Thank god! Lucky me the US version is different and right!

So be carefull purchasing the European EU version, with the glossy look and feel!

Go for the US version with normal mat paper hardcover... which includes both One Love tracks >> Extended & DUB !!!!!!

I have contacted Universal about this problem, and they will give attention to it... but it can be take for year before all these wrong cd's has been out of stock!

I am sad, but the US version I will give definatly 5 stars! Just for the 1984 remixes cd 2!!!!

Good Vibes

5.0 out of 5 stars Expanded Legend February 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Bob Marley's Legend compilation is among the biggest selling greatest hits albums of all time. The album cuts across all musical genres as rock fans, hip hop fans, r&b fans as well as reggae fans count it as part of their collection. The original set is augmented by a second disk of remixes and even if you are one of the multitudes who already own Legend, the second disk is worth the purchase as well as the remixing of the first disk which provides a superior sound to the original.
