This is not a good set, get Mr. Chatterbox!!, or any of the Complete Bob Marley double albums (Vol. 1, 2,or 3 OR ALL OF THEM!) for much better sound quality. Nothing wrong with the material in this, but I've heard it, and it isn't kosher.

Being an avid Bob Marley fan I understand the different stages in which he recorded in, but when I think of box set I anticipate re-touched, digitally remastered or something along those lines. Not something that sounds like it was recorded in my basement with a half fuctional microphone!

I got this collection under the Name of "Bob Marley: 40Classic Performances" ...and the sound quality is absolutely terrible. Also ... there are songs performed by Peter Tosh and they aren't creditet. It's not at all a Bob Marley Box Set. I bought it for "Chances are" and "There she goes", and they are of course worth the low price I paied along with all the other songs. But I can't recommend this unless you are a ABSOLUTELY diehard fan and even then you will know the songs on this recordings and have them on some other record. If you want a good collection, take LEGEND.

I must say that I am a little surprised by the low ratings everyone is giving this set. Yes the sound quality is poor, but that is part of the charm. One thing you need to realize is that these recordings were made during the 60's in third world Jamaica. Bob Marley was not yet a big star even in his own country, so he and the Wailers and the musicians (the Wailers at that time were his back up singers consisting of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, not his whole band)playing on the recordings did not go in with much of a buget. The recording eqipment being used was primitive even by the standards of the time. Like I said before this was done in the third world. Also, Chris Blackwell was not producing for the Wailers yet. I do think to call this box set "The best of" is kind of a minomer. That said, it is not fair to compare it to "Legend", since all of the tracks on that album were recorded at a much later stage in his career on a much higher buget with much better production. The best way to accept this set it is to appreciate it for what it is, and that is the transition from ska to rock steady to the reggae style we most know him for. These tracks were during his "Rock Steady" period and it is interesting to see how reggae was comeing in to being. Many of the songs have a strong Mowtown influence. A lot of the songs here are early versions of his later well known hits. If you are a true Bob Marley fan who is opend minded than this is a must have. I also recommend picking up anything from his ska years.

Let the buyer beware! The atrocious sound quality of this three cd set is enough to raise serious questions as to its authenticity. For example, on the second CD entitled "Duppy Conqueror" several songs including "Kaya", "Trench Town Rock" and "Lively Up Yourself" are OBVIOUSLY recorded from old, warped and badly scratched vinyl records. There are many other examples of this throughout the remaining 2 CD's. By comparison, a legitimate compilation such as "Legend" is made using the the original master tapes and has the high fidelity sound you would expect from a reputable record company. The Madacy Entertainment Group is responsible for the production and distribution of this CD, but the cheap packaging, lack of liner notes with full band credits, and the glaringly poor sound quality of this compilation, reeks of exploitation. Don't support this kind of unscrupulous practice. Don't buy this CD!

I really wanted to like this. A great collection of his lesser known songs, but what's with the sound quality? It sounds like someone stuck a microcassette recorder in the door of the studio and made an album from it. There's much better recordings out there... get one of those.

i was really disapointed in this cd. i bought it because i am a huge sublime fan and sublime speaks vey highly or bob marley. i enjoyed the music but the sound quality was just horrible. i was wondering why i got 3 cds for so cheap anbd i found out when i listened to it. I've heard good things about legend best of bob marley so i'm gonna pick that one up and i think you should take a look at it too, but my advice to you is dont get this cd if your looking for a quality bob cd beacause this one is deffina;tly not one of them

Only for the absolute most die hard Marley officionado. Some of these recordings are spotty, recorded with numerous other musicians not the regular wailers band. One would do better with "rebel music" or "legend" for a representation of Mr. Marley's finest work. Cool runnings....socks
