Name a more successful comp, in ANY genre! Originally released in 1984, Legend - The Best of Bob Marley & The Wailers celebrates its 35th anniversary with a 180g repress. In addition to the og tracklisting, the double LP includes two bonus tracks made appearances on the cassette version only, "Easy Skanking" and "Punky Reggae Party." Although jam packed with instantly recognizable, genre-defining classics, some might argue that the lack of Bob Marley's more politically leaning works makes this collection passable. A fair point, but for fans of the more feel-good, love-for-all side of the Jamaican legend, look no further than this. Includes "Three Little Birds," "Could You Be Love," "Redemption Song," "Exodus," "I Shot the Sheriff," "One Love / People Get Ready" and more.
