Originally released in 1984, Bob Marley's LEGEND illustrates the remarkable life and recording career of one of reggae music's most important figures. This iconic collection not only serves as the perfect introduction to the music of Bob Marley, it has become an essential part in every Marley collection. It remains the world's best-selling reggae album and continues to be one of the best-selling catalog albums, exceeding 15 copies in the U.S. alone and over 27 million worldwide.
Coupled with the original release of LEGEND on CD, this deluxe version features this iconic collection entirely mixed in 5.1 by the GRAMMY® Award winning producer Bob Clearmountain on Blu-Ray Pure Audio Disc™ and now includes the original, early studio version of 'No Woman No Cry,' in lieu of the previous live version. Also featured are two, previously unheard alternate takes of 'Easy Skanking' and 'Punky Reggae Party' recently discovered in the Marley vault. Classic Marley anthems include 'Three Little Birds,' 'Get Up Stand Up,' 'One Love/People Get Ready,' 'No Woman No Cry' and 'I Shot The Sheriff,' which was later a No. 1 hit for Eric Clapton, as well as 'Jamming,' 'Exodus,' 'Redemption Song' and 'Is This Love.'
Both the CD and Blu-Ray Pure Audio Disc™ are housed in a 28-page, case bound book featuring extended
liner notes, unseen photos and forewards written by Sir Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, and liner notes by
author of the book Marley, Christopher Farley.

The album itself is exactly what I want from a Marley compilation. It has every song most people will want. My only favorite missing is "Stop that Train" but it's barely a hit and I'm not surprised nor disappointed in its exclusion.
Minus one star because it's not a gatefold packaging, there isn't a lyric sheet and I wish it had both of those things. I understand it's a budget release, but an artist this big I at least expect a lyric sheet. I regularly buy self released records printed in sub 1000 quantities that include this for about the same price. There's no reason this couldn't have included a little something extra.
*** Update***-- Well, I may have spoke too soon as I noticed this noticeable ding in the second disc of the LP set-- pics attached. Almost looks like someone's dog chewed it up. Shrug. It still sounds fine but come on, that's definitely not what you want to see out of a new LP set.
That being said, talked with Amazon and they took care of me for the issues with this set.
