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.

I'm not an audiophile, but I can tell you that I heard sounds that I hadn't heard before with this LP.
I am officially in love with it.
Long live Bob.
The dynamic range and clarity of Blue Ray Audio is superior to any audio format past or present - to include Vinyl (and I own an excellent direct drive turntable). While several self-described vinyl and tube-amp aficionados may gasp at this claim - I would also say the' warmth' of this format is easily on par with vinyl. While those aforementioned aficionados might classify my claims are perhaps bold, I have a background that can back up those claims - to include an engineering internship with John Dunlavy at Dunlavy Audio Labs when the company was awarded Stereophile Loudspeaker and Product of the year for 1996 (for the DAL SCIV).
The clarity and depth of the music in this older title has made this one of my current favorites to listen to. I can thank the scarcity of Blue Ray Audio titles to opening my world up to this well engineered and lovingly produced album. While I do not like all the songs on this album (5 in particular, a few at least partially for the politics involved), I simply forward through those selections. The rest are a joy to listen to.
While I have enjoyed my collection of DVD Audio titles - there is a definite difference in the clarity and depth of music between the two formats. So much so that I would say the improvement is analogous to the improvement from CDs to DVD Audio.
I look forward to more titles coming out on this format.
