The #1 selling compilation album in America, with little or no duplication of the box set's contents. Tracks include No Woman No Cry; Buffalo Soldier; Get Up Stand Up; Stir It Up; One Love/People Get Ready; I Shot the Sheriff; Redemption Song; Jamming , and more.
Even as greatest hits packages go, this is an utter gem. Every song is inspired, in a class of its own, whether the real version of "I Shot the Sheriff," the hymnlike "No Woman, No Cry," or the sheer joy of "Jamming." Even allowing that Marley never wrote any bad material, then Legend is still the crème de la crème, the heart and soul of the Jamaican people packed into one five-inch compact disc. He was unique, and the message of this record, more than any other, is that he died far too soon. --Chris Nickson

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.
