Possible Upgrade to Legend

  • Apr 11, 2004
These days, record companies seem to put out varying versions of artists' greatest hits. Its at a point where these companies think they can make money by changing the tracks.

This is very evident with this Bob Marley compilation. Thirteen of the twenty tracks are from the top selling Legend compilation. By the way Legend has sixteen tracks(twowhich are bonus tracks). Ok, the Redemption Song is a group version here as compared to the acoustic one on Legend. And this compilation has seven additional tracks. Of these seven tracks, I find the melodies of Iron Lion Zion, Turn Your Lights Down Low,and Lively Up Yourself to be quite good. The others are not bad but somehow seem to not be on the same level as such classics as Jamming, I Shot The Sheriff, Waiting In Vain, and Get Up Stand Up.

Therefore, if you like these extra seven tracks as much as the other Marley Classics, pick this CD up at once. Otherwise Legend may be the better purcahse for those who want the quick study on Bob Marley.
