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

The first official Marley Remix album . Reggae legend Bob Marley is being re-introduced to sound systems worldwide. A crop of hot producers including Afrodisiac Sound System, Fort Knox Five, Yes King, Trio Electrico, Jimpster and DJ Spooky- have remixed a dozen cherished songs from the beloved master. Roots, Rock, Remixed balances that fine line of respect to the inimitable artist Nesta was and using the bass-heavy digital technologies available to producers. Nothing of the gorgeous, crackly analog originals is lost in translation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Re-Introduction to the Legend August 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to Bob's music I am pretty reserved about remixes and remakes of Bob's stuff. Nothing is like the orignial and nothing will ever be. I have heard some attempts at remixes, dubs and remakes and with the exception of Stephen Marley's work on "Chant Down Babylon" none of them have really hit the mark. This album is in my opinion a huge leap forward in the right direction. The tracks are really groovy and while a few tracks come close to Dubs it's not really a Dub by raw definition. The tracks also flow together really well up untill the last 3 tracks, and are lackluster in their feel and sound. They sound like album fillers. If you are looking for some good lounge/groove music this is a great CD and for Marley Collectors and fans such as myself I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irie remixes! Soundtrack to the summer August 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Thank you Tuff Gong! Nearly all the other Marley remixes I've heard have been atrocious, but this album hits the spot. The whole idea of remixing has its roots in Jamaican music so it makes total sense that Marley would finally get a good remix treatment.

For the most part, the remixers treat the tracks with great respect, adding a danceable thump or some stoney dub in just the right places. "Duppy Conqueror" sounds to me like a pop hit with a great sing-along chorus. "Sun Is Shining" is a fantastic slice of downtempo dub. "Soul Shakedown Party" and "Soul Rebel" are great fun for the dance floor as well. A few tracks go further than just tasteful modernizing. Jimpster's "400 Years" is a particular favorite, a dubbed out tech house makeover so hypnotic I keep hitting repeat.

But overall, this record is just plain fun. I'm sure these tracks would sound good pumping from a club, but I've enjoyed just chilling out with it on in my apartment. It's high on my list for the soundtrack to the summer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roots Rock Remixed September 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big fan of Bob Marley for quite awhile now and I am always skeptical of any "remixes" of his works. Marley's songs are so perfect and beautiful that I usually feel that they should never be touched.

So while I've been burned in the past on previous reworkings of Marley's music, this "Roots, Rock, Remixed" is actually really good! The songs are basically left intact and are not cut up/sliced & diced to the point where they're unrecognizable. All of the songs have basically been updated with better beats.

If you're a fan of dub, downtempo, chillout you should enjoy this. The remixers did a great job of not making the beats sound too modern/ futuristic to the point where they don't go well with the original songs. Overall a really great remix album that does justice to Bob's songs. It's good for hanging out/ chilling out/ relaxing/ de-stressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome August 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
First of all, if you don't have a compilation of the Wailer's Studio One songs, get one of those first. If you have been listening to old school Wailers for a while now, read on.

This is sweet. These are all different versions of the Wailers' classics during their Studio One days. I would classify the style of music as more experimental, dub/dance/techno-like versions than the originals. Rainbow Country is my favorite (DJ Spooky did an AWESOME job with the bass and drums in particular). Other standout tracks were Soul Shakedown Party, Don't Rock My Boat, and Small Axe. One Love is actually taken from a song the Wailers called "All In One" and has snippets of Bend Down Low, Nice Time, and Simmer Down on it. The only songs I didn't like were Trenchtown Rock and 400 Years because they are a little too techno and didn't have enough vocals on them to keep me entertained. The rest of the songs are worth having though. I would recommend this to anyone who has been listening to the Wailers' Studio One stuff for quite a few years (like I have) and just want a new take on them. Its not just an attempt to cash in on Bob's music. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This may just burn out my media player... October 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Sitting in my living room, jamming to this album. I'm worried that my car stereo, or computer, may get fried eventually with all the spinning this has done inside. The only thing that I think is missing, is that more songs weren't remixed. This album just isn't as big as it should have been. I read the other reviews on here and agree with most of what they had to say, this is a great album.
Many other remixes of Bob's stuff, just don't do him justice, but this album, I believe Bob would be happy with. Most tracks stay very true to the original sounds, while still keeping things new and fresh. Now there are a couple of tracks that stray way far from how they originally sounded, in that they can now be considered, minimal, or progressive house, but those two tracks, they just happen to be my favorites on the album.
This shouldn't be passed up by those new to Bob, or anyone that's been a fan.

Even though these are different artists remixing all these Bob Marley songs, they fit together really really well. Start to finish I've listened to this album at least 50 times. 10/10 - Would jam again!

Bob Marley's rhythm section was as tight as James Brown's. Unfortunately, these remixes are not half that tight. Good idea, but it sounds like noise to me.
