GeoReview: Legend: The Very Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers
By Clayton Ruley
 

One of the great lyricists and musicians, Bob Marley left us too soon when he died in 1981 but his name and legacy lives on through his music, his children and through the success of reggae worldwide. Legend the album greatest hits collection that came out posthumously now has a DVD sister to go along with.

Featuring greats like “Redemption Song”, “Stir It Up”, and Satisfy My Soul this song will give you, a better appreciation for Bob’s stage presence and emphasis on words.

Packed with real video/concert footage from the Legend tracks as well as bonus footage and songs, Time Will Tell: A 90 minute Documentary and bonus DVD-ROM Web Content, and you can make your own personal play list.

This DVD is a must have for any novice, intermediate, or expert Bob fan. The documentary is strong, with interviews from close family and friends including Rita Marley (his wife and member of the I Threes, Peter Tosh, Bunny Livingston & Bob himself, a historical aspect including a brief History of Rastafarian culture and Jamaica culture and a lot of video and footage from Bob’s countryside birthplace to his last concert in Pittsburgh.

This is a real treat for people who like seeing success through personal struggle and despite the opposition including the higher ups in his own country! You get to see how much his racial identity had to do with his political theory and his desire to speak for justice. This and more is what Legend has to offer.

A reasonable cop at any music store ($10-20 bucks) this movie will sure please. I give it 4 and ½ globes. The DVD could have given you more full cut songs, but overall it was an excellent idea. This producer Jeff Fura and editor Keri Winther did a great job of putting the conditions and climate of Marley’s surroundings throughout the DVD. Also the interviews with Bob himself are informative and real. You can see his desires and hopes on his face and in his lyrics.

Uploading change was what Bob was all about!
