Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer


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.

Bob's story is that of an ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Marley Store

Editorial Reviews

The second installment of the "lost" Bob Marley and the Wailers tracks is like a cache of buried treasure. As was the case with the heralded first collection, this three-CD set, which covers Marley and the Wailers from 1970-1971, have their origins in the early sessions Marley did for the JAD label. Due to a myriad of twisted legal reasons, these sessions (another set is due out shortly) were never released outside of Jamaica. Many of the songs on this superb anthology would ultimately be recorded again by Marley and his band under Chris Blackwell's watch. What helps make this collection essential is that the man at boards is Lee "Scratch" Perry, the once and future God of Dub and beyond. Check out Perry's more sped up, rawer version of "Four Hundred Years" (later retitled "400 Years" and released on Catch a Fire--or the numerous dub and instrumentals, all of which shine a light on the Wailers as a band. With many familiar cuts ("Kaya," "African Herbsman," an early version of "Who the Cap Fits") and previously unheard songs, some of which never made it out of sound systems in Kingston, this is an intoxicating look at works in progress and the development of a sound and an icon. --Amy Linden

5.0 out of 5 stars Misinformation May 2, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't be put off by the slurs dished out by the New York so-called Reggae fan and the various aliases he uses on this and other reviews of the accompanying CD's in this series. This is not another shady repackaging of Marley cast offs like so many before it. This is finally a decent collection of the seminal Lee Perry originals recorded by The Wailers in Jamaica before signing to Island. Absolute solid gold reggae and true reggae fans know that when they hear/see it. Roger Steffens would never in a million years put his name to another substandard cash-in. Stick to 'Legend' Mr Rhode Island/NYC and leave the really good Marley stuff to people who know what they're talking about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw Reggae!!!! April 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD set is absolutely awesome!!! Here is Bob Marley in his formative years, before he became widely known. Here is raw effort and enthusiasm; the product of a hard-working musician working hard. This CD portrays not only the birth of a legendary musician, but the birth of an entire genre of music. Bob's music is uplifting, easygoing, feel-good, and spiritual notwithstanding that his lyrics address primarily the plight of the downtrodden. I would rarely give any CD a five star rating, but I would give this one six stars if I could. I own over a thousand CDs and this is clearly one of my best.

This box set is a must have for any Bob Marley fan. The music is beautifully produced and engineered to capture that vinyl record feel, from which these songs were remastered. the melody produced by Marly and the original wailers, including Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Family man is exquisite, soulful, and delicate while remaining powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Wailers Recordings!! February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a great Bob Marley compilation. Yes, the sound quality is mediocre, but that's due to the lack of hi-tech equipment in the Jamacian studios. People need to realize that most reggae recordings (especially in the early 70's) were done on cheap 2 tracks. There was no Electric Lady studios or Sound Factory in Jamacia. Even if there was, most musicians would not be able to afford the studio time. With that said, anybody that cares to delve deeper into early reggae must pick this up. It has some very classic songs (African Herbsman, Fussing and Fighting, Brainwashing). The Wailers and Lee Perry were creating some of the best reggae of all time. Most of the music here was the blueprint for reggae over the next decade. This is a must for any serious collector of reggae music. Anybody that dismisses these recordings does not know reggae music period!!!!!! Take a risk and buy this cd, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Bob! 'Scratch' is the real jewel of this set! December 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While this volume of the Complete Wailers set offers a nice perspective of the original recordings of the Wailers, it is made much more impresive by the fine tracks of producer/studio legend Lee "Scratch" Perry. Scratch's versions show his true genius at the dials and the inevitable evolution of dub. This album should impress dub fans much more than it impresses reggae fans. It is far from the sleepy spacey dub of Tubby and his disciples (which is amazingly beautiful in its own way, don't get me wrong). Perry's versions show the up-beat dance-able potential of instrumental reggae. Of special note are the versions on disc 3 of Kaya and Small Axe (especially Axe Man which features some seriously killer nyabinghi drumming). Wailers fans, buy Vol. 1 of this series. Dub fans, buy Vol. 2. Music fans, buy both!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good, but with a caution... July 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Soul Rebels, Soul Revolution, and More Axe recordings that make up most of the box set are real gems. Early, gritty Wailers finding their way and their sound. But... there is a lot of dub and instrumental versions that I can live without. I am a complete amateur when it comes to dub, Lee Perry, and Jamaican music in general. My only real knowledge of reggae comes from the Wailers Island work, so take my opinion with a grain of salt (with lots of grains...)
For me, the vocals are a huge part of the Wailers appeal. The lyrics, and the voices of Bob, Bunny, and Peter have always moved me. Take them away, and I find myself missing them and filling in the words in my head to complete the sound. This in no way detracts from the original versions of the tracks that make up this set. The sound quality is dodgy is parts, but who cares? The genius of Bob, Peter, Bunny and the Barretts shine through loud and clear. If you want polished, pick up Confrontation.
4 stars, not 5, but only because I usually pop out each CD about half way through when the instrumentals start...
