Legend is a compilation album by Bob Marley and the Wailers. It was released in May 1984 by Island Records. It is a greatest hits collection of singles in its original vinyl format and is the best-selling reggae album of all-time, with over 15 million copies sold in the United States and an estimated 28 million copies sold globally. In 2003, the album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
Even allowing that Marley never wrote any bad material, then Legend is still the crème de la crème, the heart and soul of the Jamaican people packed into one five-inch compact disc. He was unique, and the message of this record, more than any other, is that he died far too soon. Is it the best I have ever heard or own? Not sure but it's one of them,especially considering the age of the material.

It also includes the "Redemption Song" which was released on Marley's final non-posthumous album, Uprising. Since its release, Legend has been, for many people, their first exposure to Marley, and to reggae in general. It is a superlative beginning - but only the tip of his genius
