5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning collection of Bob Marley's work March 30, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is probably one of the best box sets I will ever own. The musicianship and artistry is remarkable across all four discs. It's consistently amazing.
Usually the downfall of a box set is that it's little more than a cleverly repackaged greatest hits album with lots and lots of filler. The genius behind this set is the diversity in the offering and the format. Yes, there are a number of "hit songs" on this box set, but they're generally in the form of remixes, alternate takes or live versions. This way, the listener can really aprpeciate the craftsmanship of the song and revel in amazement at all of the subtle nuances that go into Marley's songwriting and playing. I'm glad this found its way into mass production again. Bob's music is timeless and everyone deserves the privilege of hearing his music.
Hardcore fans and new fans alike will be amazed by the music contained in Songs of Freedom. Buy this one now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to the evolution of reggae's greatest artist September 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
What can I say about Bob Marley that hasn't already been said? He is simply the greatest artist in reggae music's history, and this box set clearly demonstrates why. You can hear his music evolve from Disc 1 to Disc 4 as he becomes funkier, more political, more mature. You can hear his voice change from that of a teen to that of a mature singer/songwriter and national icon. A few of the reasons that elevate this box set to a desert island disc are:
1) Alternate takes of many classics including Could You Be loved, Jammin', No More Trouble, etc.
2) Live versions of I Shot the Sheriff, No Woman No Cry, Redemption Song
3) Stunning long acoustic medley on Disc 2 during which Marley sings parts of 7-8 songs including one of my favorites, Guava Jelly
4) Great sound and sequencing
Do yourself a favor and get this box set. For any music fan who wants to hear a musician evolve from great to the greatest, this box set is for you. For any Bob Marley fan, I probably don't have to convince you any further that Songs of Freedom is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars the collection of a Great man and his band February 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was very pleased when island decided to re-issue this set. Originally released in 1992 this sold out very quickly and a few years ago island decided to put it out again. don't let this set pass you by. The first disc starts out in Bob's early days and goes right on up to his death. Rare 12" mixes and demos and outtakes are included in this set. Redemption song is form Bob Marley's last concert with the Wailers in Pittsburgh in 1980. In my opinoin, it is the best live version of Redemption Song. There are no downfalls or quibbles to talk about for this set, every track is a classic, and you can listen to it over and over again. If you want to just buy one Bob Marley and the Wailers set, this should be it. A great set that includes many great songs and nice instrumentations, no reggae fan should be without this set. The booklet that comes with this set is also a nice bonus, you can become a Wailers expert overnight. If you listen to this set long enough, you'll become a Wailers addict for life. I guarantee it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best Box Set Ever February 16, 2000
By John
Format:Audio CD
40 out of the 42 preceeding reviews give this 5 stars (the other 2 give 4 stars). This in itself tells a story. Most box sets are usually for the devoted, but I feel that this one can work as an introduction to the brilliance of Bob Marley. It ranges from his early ska roots to the more refined hits of Redemption Song and One love. However, if you are a bit nervous about spending this much, rather get Legend, once that has worked it's spell on you, you can then progress to this. (Be warned though that this was unavailable for a good while so don't delay too long). One listen to this and you will realise that Marley IS reggae. Essential for Marley fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for the Acoustic Medley Alone! April 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm a hypcorite because I haven't shelled out the $xx that it costs, but I ahve borrowed it before (disk 2)for the acoustic medley, which is absoloutely amazing. It is not just some little outtake that they found to try and put on as marketing blah blah, it is just bob and his guitar, wailing out songs that flow into one another like a single song to serenade a child or a love. Besides that, the set is pretty complete, though I guess everyone has their own favorite Bob stuff. Also, please give me a helpful vote as it helps me feel good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical December 21, 1999
By Bobby
Format:Audio CD
A great dedication to one of, if not the most, inspirational singer of all time. Bob Marley...the original ska and reggae master. His box set, a collection of amazingly magical music, is perfect for just about any mood you are in. It makes you happy. It relaxes you. It's great with a beer. It's very hard to dislike. I feel chills when any of these songs are played. Many artists do not have that power with their listeners, but Bob Marley did, and still does, many years after passing away. A collectors item at the same time, this box set is perfect because you can hear Bob's earlier sound, as it developed into the sound he was last heard playing in the early 80's....and never did he lose the reggae or the power. He took the music, and put Jamaica on the map forever. The music in this very box set. A MUST BUY!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have June 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Bob Marley's music in the 80's. A firend of the family had the Legend cd. I was immediatley entranced by the upbeat happy music and the mellow voice of marley. Since then I have evolved into a huge fan of all of his music. If you are going to buy one marley album than buy this one! It includes most of his more popular songs on discs 3 and 4. The first two discs are the gem of the set though in my opinion. The acoustic medley on disc two is numbing and the first disc showcases his talents at a young age. I was fortunate to have bought the set back in 92 when it was originally released and came with a booklet of song descriptions as well as a brief history of Marley. Although this set does not contain the book it is still a must have for the music content alone. Wether you're an avid fan or a casual listener this cd is a must have. It is over 4 hours of great music. I guarantee that anyone who buys this album will fall in love with it.
