It's Bob! What more is there to say? Okay, there's more to say... If you have a home theater with 5.1 Surround sound and an appreciation for the art of music and quality audio, you will LOVE this set. Pop the Blu-ray disc into your player, go to the audio set up first and select the 5.1 DTS audio(FYI- The 2.0 PCM is the default, so this is what you get if you just play it first), then grab your favorite drink, relax, and absorb the musical greatness with various instruments and background vocals easing from the surround channels and Marley's lyrics speaking to you front and center. Bravo to Ziggy on the Surround Sound and to the team that made this re-release happen.

Bob Marley & The Wailers were truly a historical phenomenon that comes along a very few times. They brought a sound and belief system that truly shocked the world and became one of the few acts in music history to introduce a genre of music to the masses. LEGEND is a perfectly crafted album of some of their most wonderful and meaningful songs packaged in such a way that you get a synopsis of how truly incredible this band and Robert Nesta Marley were. Both have reached mythic proportions since Bob's death in 1981 and this album was a celebration of his songs and message. The success of this album can't be understated, it has spent close to 1,000 weeks on the billboard charts & another 760 plus weeks on the U.K. charts selling over 25 millions copies worldwide.

Bob was a true poet, revolutionary, prophet and musical genius whose songs touched people right where and still have a profound effect even to this day. His songs helped to not only entertain but educate and consolidate, they were truly songs of revolutions around the world. The revolution was not just a physical or military one but mostly revolutions of ideals, thoughts and perceptions. He, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer were all 3 fantastic songwriters who lived what they wrote thus lending to it's legitimacy. Reggae as a genre truly came to the mainstream with this band and saw a tremendous development from Island Music to a form of expression that was adopted by most all of the top acts of that day in one way or another.

Most of the songs are from Marley's albums after Tosh and Wailer had left to form their own bands, however, there are classics like "Get Up, Stand Up"; " Stir It Up" and "I Shot The Sheriff" from the time period when all three legends were still together. One of the constants is/was the songwriting and Marley stood front and center. He truly was a songwriter unlike no other, his songs and mode of delivery were truly spectacular and easily translated into his live shows which were themselves legendary and he still holds several records for attendance in many venues he performed in. I remember growing up how much of major thing it was when he released an album as we really hadn't heard anything like that before.

This album is a fitting tribute to the man, his band, message and life. The world was truly blessed to have experienced the music of Bob Marley and The Wailers. We will never see anything like them again and I am so happy that I was alive to experience the magic of their music, message and the affect it had on many lives worldwide. They truly changed more that just music, they changed the way many thought and their songs gave strength, hope and fire to many an oppressed people to, as the song says, GET UP, STAND UP!

Bob speaks to my soul. I have been on a mission to own every album he has ever made. None of the albums let you down. It is some of the best music to relax and chill too. I play it every time I am cooking away in the kitchen.

This is a classic for a reason. And this special edition vinyl does it justice. The colored vinyl looks amazing, sounds great, and is a a great addition to any record collection. Its also a great conversation piece cause the 3 colored vinyl is so striking.

THE MOST GORGEOUS VINYL IN MY COLLECTION!!! Everyone who sees it is mesmerized and as a child of the islands, it's my proudest one to show off! It's a must have with ALL of his legendary hits on it. I grew up hearing these and my parents owned the album. This vinyl plays sooo amazingly well. To have it in this innovative way is simply gorgeous. Vinyls are the NEW digital they say, so get yours asap!

A great hits collection on beautiful tri-colored vinyl. If you own only one reggae record, this is the one to have.

Felt like this would be a great start to begin my Bob Marley collection. Had the fantastic privledge of hearing "Redemption Song" for the very first time recently, in a very strange setting through an amazing surround sound system. It really sang right through my heart, and was captivated by the vocals. I get chills & goose bumps just thinking about it. Great song. Up until then, my favorite song by him was always "No Woman, No Cry." Perfect jam circle type of song in the event some bongos are present.
Definitely worth getting the deluxe. Check it out!

I love Bob Marley and this CD has lots of the old favorites. It arrived before the stated delivery date in good condition. I think the price was fair (average). I keep it in the car 'cause I commute with a bunch of idiots that make me so mad. All I do is pop Bob Marley into the player and I've got a smile on my face. If you like Reggae, this is a classic.
