A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Legend is a compilation album by Bob Marley and the Wailers, released in 1984 by Island Records. Featuring a collection of hit singles in their original vinyl format, this is the best-selling reggae album of all-time, having sold over 15 million copies in the United States and an estimated 25 million copies globally.

Legend contains all ten of Marley's Top 40 hit singles in the UK, plus "Stir It Up" "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up”, which consisted of the original Wailers featuring Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston. “Exodus", "Waiting in Vain”, "Could You Be Loved" and "Buffalo Soldier" are the only US chart hits of Marley’s to be included in this collection.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. As of April 2016, it has spent a record total of 413 non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200 album chart, making it the fourth longest run in history. - Wiki

“Bob Marley said, "Reggae music is too simple for [American musicians]. You must be inside of it, know what's happening, and why you want to play this music. You don't just run and go play this music because you think you can make a million off it." Ironically, this set of the late reggae idol's greatest hits has sold in the millions worldwide. In a single disc, it captures everything that made him an international icon: his nuanced songcraft, his political message (and savvy), and – of course – the universal soul he brought to Jamaican rhythm and Rastafarian spirituality in the gunfighter ballad "I Shot the Sheriff," the comforting swing of "No Woman, No Cry" and the holy promise of "Redemption Song.” - Rolling Stone
