Bob Marley’s greatest hits compilation Legend will be re-released by Universal Music Enterprises on July 1. The deluxe edition combo set will include a CD and Blu-ray Pure Audio Disc, mixed in 5.1 surround sound by Grammy-winning producer Bob Clearmountain.
In addition to the original fourteen tracks, the new edition will contain two alternate takes, “Easy Skanking” and “Punky Reggae Party,” as well as the studio version of “No Woman No Cry” instead of the live version.
The two-disc set will be released with a 28-page book with liner notes by Christopher Farley, author of “Marley” and forewards by Sir Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. The album will also be available as a double LP on tri-color vinyl: yellow, red and green.
Legend has been on the Billboard 200 or Catalogue chart since 1988 (1110 weeks) – the longest charting album in the history of the Billboard Catalogue Albums Chart.
