Half-speed mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London

Twelve Bob Marley & The Wailers albums are being remastered and reissued by Tuff Gong International through a limited-edition LP series to be available starting November 20, 2020. They include all nine Bob Marley & The Wailers studio albums recorded for Island Records, plus the live albums Live! and Babylon By Bus, and the world's best-selling reggae album, Legend.

Half-speed mastering produces far superior high-frequency (treble) response, and richer and fuller low-to-middle frequencies. All tracks were mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London.

"The classic Marley album, the one that any fair-weather reggae fan owns, Legend contains 14 of his greatest songs, running the gamut from 'I Shot the Sheriff' to the meditative 'Redemption Song' and the irrepressible 'Three Little Birds.' Some may argue that the compilation shortchanges his groundbreaking early ska work or his status as a political commentator, but this isn't meant to be definitive, it's meant to be an introduction, sampling the very best of his work. And it does that remarkably well, offering all of his genre-defying greats and an illustration of his excellence, warmth, and humanity. In a way, it is perfect since it gives a doubter or casual fan anything they could want. Let's face it, the beauty and simplicity of Marley's music was as important as his message, and that's captured particularly well here." — AllMusic
