OK, I am a huge Bob Marley fan and I have all his albums on CD, but for me this is the prize of the whole lot. If you have a DVD player or a DVD drive on your computer, then you owe it to yourself to get this little disc.
What do you get? 22 of his best songs, mostly in live performances, but with some video renditions, plus a ninety minute "musicmentary" that has a few more songs and snatches of performances all over the world, linked by an interview with Marley, and lots of fascinating photography of Jamaican life and landscape. It even includes scenes of Haile Selassie's rapturous reception in Jamaica in 1966.
The video for Natural Mystic has fascinating footage of the scenes at Marley's 1981 funeral that is almost worth the cost of admission alone, and then you will see plenty of life in Trenchtown too, that gives you a real feel for the milieu that gave life to this music.
Lots of footage of Bob too, including him doing some tricks with a soccer ball, as well as loads of performances and a variety of dreadlocked hairstyles.
Watching this makes me feel 25 years younger. For the price, which is hardly more than a CD, you would be one crazy baldhead if you did not buy it.

If you a fan of reggae or it's most well known artist, Bob Marley, than you have to have this disc. For some unknown reason I had passed this disc up thinking it was the CD by the same name. How dumb or more wrong could I be. This is the goods and ata bargain price. A treasure chest of Marley videos that features thirteen of is best songs awaits the reggae music fan. The color reproduction and sound quality is nothing short of outstanding. Play this disc on your home system for a truly incredible experience. Besides the great music videos you also get the documentary "Time Will Tell" in splendid sight and sound. I have the original on old school vhs (remember those antiquated vcr's?) and it had more than it's share of play but by comparison the dvd quality is so much better. Crank it up on your home system or even on your computer, assuming you have a good set of speakers and sub woofer, and you are in for a real treat. The rasta man will blow you away. The footage in the documentary is excellent and features original Wailers members Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston in rare form. See Bob Marley playing soccer, getting philosopical on avariety of topics in his interview and sadly see him deteriorating before your eyes in his final days in physical presence but seem even stronger in human spirit. He was a man that only passes this way not very often. An additional highlight of this great deal is the ability to create a playlist from the videos for whenever you are in the mood for some Bob Marley. This playlist can be changed whenever or songss skipped as you like. I find this feature very cool as I keep this disc in the five disc rotation on the dvd player always ready. This way while viewing and pausing a different movie for the popcorn break or whatever a little music can lighten up your soul . There are many highlights on this disc but one is definitely the accoustic version solo of "Redemption Song" that is one heart wrenching performance. Check the charismatic Honorable Robert Nesta Marley O.M. and witness the natural mystic on tour, in interviews and in videos perpetuating his legacy and legend. Highly recommended.

I have seen most of the Marley videos and this award winning documentery rocks the most! There is a LOT of Bob in this one, and the famous scene from the "Concert for Peace". The information and the music are awesome. One of my all time fav music videos! It received some sort of documentary film award for excellence.

The opening scene is so very touching, from then on i was glued and my eyes never left the tv screen. I never thought it was possible but i loved Bob even more after watching this dvd. it really affected my life. There are just too many personal and touching scenes to go into here but all I can say is Please do yourself a favor and get this. Now I can understand why this dvd won so many accolades. It's worth its price in gold. Get it now!

EXCELLENT! I can watch this again and again and still be blown away with the spirit of this great man. A MUST for reggae fans everywhere, this is definitely something you want in your collection. Especially touching is the "Natural Mystic" track in the special features portion which shows footage of Bob's funeral and the people of Jamaica.

This video is not really a documentary, it is only bob performing each song on Legend (his greatest hits cd). The video also has a cool short clip of bob performing "want more" from rastaman vibration. Basically all it is performances. If you want a good documentary get Rebel Music the dvd or caribbean nights:the bob marley story.

Okay...I am not the biggest Marley fan in the world but have wanted to know more and frankly the other dvds on him I have purchased left me unsatisfied...this DVD is amazing. A great selection of 13 performances from live shows.....plus a bonus selection of 11 extra songs...and that is not all!
a 90 minute movie/documentary "Time Will Tell" which is a fabulous blending of music and story is also contained on this DVD....along with a wonderful booklet....I NOW know what the big damn deal was about this guy....and am looking forward to getting to know his music...if you are on the fence ...don't hesitate its a joke at the price its being offered at and while I am sure rabid fans will probably have some of this footage in various forms....this is all killer NO filler..

This DVD is everything I hoped for and more. The live performances, footage and history of this reggae ICON are incredible.
It reminds you of "who" the real Bob Marley is- a crusader for human rights and an ingeneous muscian.
The concert footage of Bob and the Whailers is excellent, great sound! I personally enjoy Bobs rendition of "Could you be Loved " sitting by himself in a recording studio as clips of him playing soccer in Jamaica come by.
Blast this DVD on your TV/ Stereo and you will be transported. I recommend this DVD highly- less documentary,more live music- the first DVD for Bob to be centered more on music- a nice update.

I purchased Legend 10 years ago and rarely played it. One day while playing on Amazon, I ordered this DVD. I was amazed by Mr. Marley's, presence, music, message and live performances. I was amazed at how great of a performer he was. WOW! I wish I was old enough to actually know who he was and when he was alive. I would have definitely attended his shows. I have since purchased Catch A Fire, Burnin, Exodus, Kaya, Natty Dread and the new compilation CD gold. Marley now stands next to Stevie Wonder as my favorite recording artists. You will not be disappointed in this great DVD from a powerful artist.

My favorite song on this DVD is Jammin from Time will Tell. This version of jammin is from the One Love Peace Concert. The footage of the performance showed an incredible performance but only 2 minutes worth. I also like the Time Will Tell versions of Get Up Stand Up, Exodus, and Could you be Loved over the regular Legend versions on this great DVD.

You must purchase this DVD if you are a Marley fan or just love great music. I am glad I purchased this DVD. This DVD introduced me to one of the great artists of this century and reggae music in general.

I think that this is the ultimate bob marley dvd. i don't think it gets any better that this. It has the songs of Legend (either their video or live perfomences) and it also contains a documentary (90 minutes) of bob marley talking about his music plus lots more live performences of the songs that are not in Legend. after you buy this dvd you won't care to purchase any other, believe me.
