Legend is a greatest hits collection of Bob Marley & The Wailers originally released in 1984. The best-selling reggae album of all time contains 10 of Marley’s 11 top 40 UK hits plus three songs from the earlier Wailers’ group which included Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston. It also includes the “”Redemption Song”” which was released on Marley’s final non-posthumous album, Uprising.

Since its release, Legend has been, for many people, their first exposure to Marley, and to reggae in general. It is a superlative beginning — but only the tip of his genius.

The song’s chorus (‘Stand up for your right . . ./Don’t give up the fight’) sounds like a political anthem, which is how Amnesty International still employs it at rallies. But the lyrics are actually rooted in Rastafarian theology, about not being pacified by promises of the afterlife. The Wailers, of course, were far from placated, especially Tosh, who sings the fire-breathing final verse. – Rolling Stone
