A legend by a legend.

Legend is a posthumous Greatest Hits Album by Bob Marley & The Wailers, released in 1984, a mere three years after his death. It's widely considered to be one of the most excellent musical compilations ever made and sold millions of copies, making it the best-selling reggae album of all-time. Even people who aren't particularly fans of Reggae or Bob Marley often do own this album in their music collection. This also explains why it's usually the highest ranking reggae and/or Marley album in many Album Top 100 lists, organized by magazines and/or radio stations like Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time , where it was placed at #46, and Time Magazine's Time All Time 100 Albums (2006). It's even the second longest-charting album in the history of Billboard, only surpassed by The Dark Side of the Moon (1973) by Pink Floyd.


One reason for its phenomenal success is that only Marley's universal Top 40 hit singles up to that time were included, not otherwise excellent songs that just never became hits.
