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

1976 album from the Reggae legend. The album was a great success in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to reach the Top Ten on the Billboard 200 charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars we want more February 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This cd was released in 1976, and was the first studio cd I heard by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Strangely enough, none of the tracks here appear on the greatest hits cd, Legend, although many are worthy. This cd has never left my 5 disc cd changer since I've owned it. This album also marks the first time Bob Marley and the Wailers made the charts in America. The band features 2 new guitarists (Donald Kinsey from Peter Tosh's Band, and Earl "Chinna" Smith a legendary Jamaican guitarist) and the guitar work is fantastic. This cd explores some new ground for reggae, and it is very good. From the opening notes of Positive Vibration, to the Speech by H.I.M transcribed to music in the song War, I was hooked as a Wailers addict for life. If you Want More Rastaman Vibrations, check out Live at the Roxy. Live the band gives off a huge vibe that is unmatched by anyone today and many of the songs on Live at the Roxy are Rastaman Vibration tracks. This cd is essential in any music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rastaman Vibration March 30, 2008
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Bob Marley & The Wailers-Rastaman Vibration *****

While this may not be Marley & The Wailers' most successful, best, or popular album it still holds a special place in my heart. More then any other album in his cannon Rastaman Vibration is more social conscious then all his other releases combined. Social issues was something he had always sang about but Rastaman Vibration seems to almost souly focus around that. Good, Evil, political, religious, and basically any other subject under the sun is covered by Marley here and this is why it is so near and dear to my heart. When people are brave enough to address issues it automatically gains my respect but when they can do it in such a intelligent way as Marley did they earn my respect for ever. Catch A Fire(the groups best album), Burnin' came close but couldn't match the subject matter of Rastaman Vibration.

I feel it also important to mention the addition of Donald Kinsey and Earl 'Chinna' Smith on guitar. This may not seem important but they are in my book one of the best guitar duo's in all of reggae.

From the almost chant of 'Positive Vibration' through the mellancolly 'Cry To Me' on through the semi-scat of 'Crazy Baldhead' to the anthemic 'War' and the final notes of 'Rat Race' Rastaman Remains a consitantly strong album. The bonus track 'Jah Live' is a great addition to this already fantastic album but it is the second and third tracks that take this albums to a five star level. 'Roots, Rock Reggae' is an unheralded classic. Truly one of the very best songs Marley & The Wailers ever pinned. 'Johnny Was' however may be the best songs Marley has ever written, if not it is among them. It truly must be heard to appreciate. It may take a few listens but once it hits you it does so like a ton of bricks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary album October 26, 2003
By Drew
Format:Audio CD
The album, "Rastaman Vibration," is a very positive and legendary album. The lyrics of this album are not only strong, but they are also lyrics that are true and that you can relate to. If you love music with deep, meaningful lyrics and a catchy, interesting beat, you will definitely enjoy this CD. From the heavy bass to the well thought out lyrics, you will be begging for more and wishing for the songs to never end as you listen to each track. Each song is sure to leave Reggae fans happy and pleased. If you have ever listened to Bob Marley before or even as a first time listener, this CD is definitely one to be enjoyed by all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Special album March 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I believe this is the only album, besides Catch A Fire, from which no songs appear on "Legend", and it is consequently far underrated. None of these songs were huge hits, but they are all solid and heartfelt; this is my favorite album. It includes well known songs such as War, Crazy Baldhead, Positive Vibration, Roots Rock Reggae.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marley and the Wailers Very Best! August 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
As an introduction to my actual review, I would like to say this; My big brother (2 years my senior) was of little to NO use to me growing up....he constantly antagonized me....he frequently "skimmed" quarters from my coin jar....and he always got his way with the television set. He also left me with childhood "scars"----- when we recieved KISS Alive II in the mail circa 1978 (we pooled our allowance together), he quickly ripped open the package....went straight to the tattoes.....and proceded to take every one that he wanted.....I was left with the Rose and Snare drum tattoes.....totally devastaing! However, many, many years later I can appreciate big Bro' and realize that many of the artists I love to this day, was exposed to me through him---- RUSH, Styx, Boston, Kansas, Etc....and of course, the GREAT Bob Marley. All that to say this: If nothing else, Big brothers (and even Dad and Mom) can be a great source for discovering music one might not have otherwise discovered. As for "Rastaman Vibration", it was my first exposure to Bob's music, and to this day remains my favorite from him. I love many of his other releases---- "Kaya", "Exodus", "Uprising", Etc..., but this album, to me, is his most 'real' and 'pure' musical expression. Ironically, "RV" seems to be almost overlooked by many fans of the genre. Out of Bob's body of work, by far this is his most socially conscience recording---- Good, Evil, Political, Religion, Oppression, Unnecessary death, War, Greed, Positives and Negatives. This is one "DEEP" album.....but one may not immediately realize the seriousness of the commentary underneath the 'slinky' grooves and general 'vibe' of the music heard on "RV".....and to me thats the beauty of this album.
