We take into account that the brilliant and evocotive music Bob Marley gave the world; music that stretches back over nearly twenty years and yet still remains timeless and universal. Bob Marley And The Wailers worked their way into the very fabric of our lives. 15 of Marley’s most memorable songs, including: Could You Be Loved ‘Exodus’ ‘Get Up Stand Up’ ‘I Shot The Sheriff’ ‘People Get In a position’ and more.
Even as greatest hits packages go, that is an utter gem. Each and every song is inspired, in a class of its own, whether the actual 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 continues to be the crème de la crème, the guts and soul of the Jamaican people packed into one five-inch compact disc. He used to be unique, and the message of this record, more than another, is that he died far too soon. –Chris Nickson
