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

1980 album from the Reggae legend, the last studio offering to be released during his lifetime. This album is one of Marley's most directly religious, with nearly every song addressing his Rastafarian beliefs, culminating in the acoustic folk classic, "Redemption Song"..

Many Bob Marley fans insist the best or "real" Marley is the rawer, rootsier early stuff like CATCH A FIRE or the early Tuff Gong recordings. While I would agree that you can't go wrong with virtually any Bob Marley album, I personally prefer the more polished and (even more) melodic pop reggae he created towards the end of his career, like KAYA and this fantastic album, UPRISING.

On UPRISING, Marley is at the height of his powers and he's accompanied by a stellar band. All of the musical elements fall perfectly into place on every single track. These tunes demonstrate that Marley had a greater, more sophisticated mastery over his craft at this particular point in his life. He was making the best of every moment he had. It's been a while since I read Tim White's excellent and highly recommended Bob Marley biography CATCH A FIRE, but I'm pretty sure Marley was aware that he had brain cancer during the recording of this album. Sadly, his tragic death was just around the corner.

Without a doubt, this is soulful, spiritual music whether the songs deal with worldly themes such as on "Pimper's Paradise" or overtly religious ones like "Forever Loving Jah." Even an agnostic like me can revel in the warm love and sheer joy in this music, which I feel even when Bob addresses the negative sides of life as he does on "Bad Card," for example. This album is loaded with important, universal themes the whole world should hear. The last track (on the original album release), "Redemption Song," featuring Marley alone on vocal and guitar, is something quite different from the other tracks and it's particularly poignant. On the whole, UPRISING is so fun to listen to and so groove-worthy that I've heard it hundreds of times and I never get tired of it.

The bonus cuts are not essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Music at the peak of his musical career September 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Marley now bearing "a sadness and a dread magnetism", Uprising gives the listener a spiritual vision of what was happening in Bobs life. He was already ill, and he gave his testament with an acoustic ballad which was titled "Redemption Song". It is Bobs last burst of studio creativity. The fact that the music retains the strenght that matches the painting of a muscled rasta rising from the earth at sunrise on the front sleeve shows Bobs sheer determination to rage against the dying of life light. A great record, thanks,Bob.

Bob Marley & The Wailers Uprising album from 1980 was a massive hit in America and England with songs such as Could You Be Loved, Coming In From The Cold, Pimper's Paradise, Work and probably Bobs most famous song Redemption Songs.

Info on Uprising

In the summer of 1980 June 10, Uprising hit the shelves it was Bob Marleys second highest selling album, (Exodus was the biggest selling).

1. Coming In From The Cold is a joyful songs with wonderful melodies. - 10/10

Written by Bob Marley

2. Real Situation powerful lyrics and nice beat. - 9/10

Written by Rita and Bob Marley

3. Bad Card has got great lyrics,

Dem go tired to see me face,

Can't get me out of the race.

Thats a very famous lyric by Bob Marley. - 10/10

Written by Bob Marley

4. We And Dem is Bob Marleys most depressing song on the album, the tune never really makes it and the song never gets going. 6/10

Written by Bob Marley

5. Work is a very good Bob Marley & The Wailers song with incredible lyrics. So good it could of been a single said Chris Blackwell. - 10/10

Written by Bob Marley

6. Zion Train is a song about Bob Marley and his band getting on a magical train to Zion. A good effort. 7/10

7. Pimper's Paradise is a song fit for Legend not just Legend 2, lyrically based it is equisite,its about the down sides of stardoom. 10/10

8. Could You Be Loved is one of Bob Marleys true gems and probably my favourite song of his, the catchy tune would make anyone dance. - 10/10 worth so much more.

Written by Bob Marley

9. Forever Loving Jah is a worship song by Bob Marley a good chorus and good lyrics always makes a good song.

Bob Marley & The Wailers' last album might seem like a strange place to start, but it was my first Wailers' album, and it is still my favorite. There aren't any huge 'hits' here, but there aren't any songs that aren't classics. Be aware that you might have to give this album repeated listens before you can "cultivate" a real appreciation for this classic reggae album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real classic to close out a legendary career February 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was the last album released in Bob Marley's lifetime, and in my opinion the gong is at his best. The band really stepped it up for this recording in my opinion. The Wailers are awesome on every recording, but this recording really stands out in my mind. Released in 1980, this was at the height of the band's popularity. The dual lead guitars here almost give this album a feel of a rock album. Don't get me wrong though it is still reggae. The classics Could You Be Loved?, and Redemption Song are known to everyone because of their appearance on Legend, but the rest of the tracks also have a very good groove to them. This is essential for any music collection reguardless if you like reggae or not. This is one of the top 10 records ever in my opinion. Don't die without listening to this, because you'll be missing out.
