From Graeme2
Reggae for the rock crowd. Mixed for the rock n pop audience. And it certainly worked didn't it. Full of brilliant songs. When I bought this back in the day it sounded fuck all like the Dub n reggae i'd hear Mr Peel play and I expected something a bit more authentic. So what. I found all that shit out eventually. This is just classic shit for the masses. Gateway reggae or just an essential best of to sit next to the other pop icons that Joe bloggs loves that are still actually nice.

Legend is the very essence of Bob Marley's music, and perhaps the single best record to be the soundtrack for a summer evening barbecue.

Possibly the greatest and most near-perfect collection of songs on a single record. But it is a compilation, so it's cheating a tad.

Along with Queen's greatest hits, legend, is one of the most perfect compilations there are. Glad that it's the superior live version of, no woman,no cry, on here. Just brilliant.

Can't fault this as a greatest hits, or an introduction to BM in general. If you only ever buy one reggae album ever, it'll most likely be this one - and it's a good choice.

One of the few compilations that continue to remain fresh. Legendary stuff.
