Bob Marley’s Legend turns 30, deluxe reissue to be released in July

on May 09, 2014, 1:45pm

Bob Marley’s posthumous greatest hits album, Legend, officially turns 30 today. To mark the occasion, Universal Records will release a special 30th anniversary deluxe edition of the compilation on July 1st.

The collection features all of Legend on Blu-Ray pure audio disc, mixed in 5.1 surround sound for the first time by producer Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones). In place of the famous live version of “No Woman, No Cry”, recorded at London’s Lyceum Theatre in 1975, the reissue instead includes the final studio version. The deluxe edition also promises previously-unreleased takes of “Easy Skanking” and “Punky Reggae Party”, both of which originally appeared as bonus tracks on the 2002 remastered release of the album.

The music will come packaged with a 28-page book that contains liner notes, rare photos of Marley, and forewords from Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder.
