Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 48/500!
Legend is a greatest hits collection of Bob Marley & The Wailers originally released in 1984. The best-selling reggae album of all time contains 10 of Marley's 11 top 40 UK hits plus three songs from the earlier Wailers' group which included Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston. It also includes the "Redemption Song" which was released on Marley's final non-posthumous album, Uprising.
Abbey Road's world-renowned engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened their doors in 1931. These records were pressed from master cuts using a precision technique known as half-speed mastering. The procedure requires the source master and the cutting lathe to run at half speed on a specially adapted Neumann VMS-80 lathe. This rare and specialised technique transforms difficult to cut highend frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produces a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record. - Miles Showell, Mastering Engineer, Abbey Road Studios
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.
