The Wailers: 30th Anniversary of Legend

If there’s any one reggae album in any given music collection, it’s probably Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Legend—the singles-and-etc. compilation that’s evidently the biggest seller the genre ever saw. And that means if there’s one reggae band that’s managed to put a song inside your head, it’s gonna be the Wailers, even if all you’ve heard by them is the clip of “Jamming” on that one Simpsons episode. Like the title promises, this stuff is quite simply legendary, and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Legend’s release, the Wailers perform the complete album, which takes the concept of “greatest hits” to another possibly even greater level. So if there’s only one reggae show you think you’ll ever go to in your life, well, you get the point.
