Bob Marley & The Wailers – Legend Remixed [Album Stream]

2 years ago written by

Who doesn’t have a memory based around a single song, if not the entire trademark Bob Marley & The Wailers album Legend? An album that is so sacred to the majority of music listeners that remixing it could be considered almost a sin. Knowing this, Universal Music Enterprises made sure to meticulously choose some of the brightest and most diverse names in the game to mold the single-filled album into their own unique visions. The long list of remix artists includes RAC, Jim James, Thievery Corporation, Pretty Lights, Photek, Marley’s children and seven others. Highlights are logically from the minds of the former three.

Where the album kicks off with a psychedelic, yet traditional take of “Wait in Vain” from the My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, RAC stick to what they do best in exposing elements of “Could You Be Loved” that many dedicated Marley fans probably didn’t even know existed. Thievery Corporation on the other hand offer up a dub take of “Get Up Stand Up” packed full of resonating bass.

The remainder of the remixes are a nice blend between various electronic, reggae and dub-esque styles that should take listeners on a trip down memory lane, while also scaling through headwind to venture off in new directions. So, sit back, relax and enjoy a rethinking of one of the most well known and respected albums in the music business.

    I officially, sack this album!

  • Skooter

    Wtf. Pretty risky remixing such a classic. Definitely not a fan of the dubstep aspects in this album, No Woman No Cry easily the worst of the bunch…

  • Literally Illiterate

    I didn’t realize My Morning Jacket’s frontman was also the leader of a deadly cult. Do some fact checking and re-read before posting Aaron Thomas

    Bob Marley influenced the entire world with his music, which will live on to be rediscovered by more and more generations to come. His work has affected my life and my art so much. I paid tribute to him with a surreal and psychedelic portrait inspired by his words and a little 4/20 action.
