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.

"A posthumous collection produced by Rita Marley, based on work left behind by Bob upon his death. Some of his best post-Wailers work is here, with songs like 'Buffalo Soldier,' 'Chant Down Babylon,' and 'Blackman Redemption.' Given that he wasn't alive to do the production that he usually helped in, this album seems remarkably true to the general vision of Bob Marley's albums. Other somewhat lesser-known tracks also help to fill in all of the cracks with some remarkable material. Case in point: 'Jump Nyabinghi,' a nice danceable groove with perhaps less of the usual politics mixed in, but with just as much musicality. Overall, any Bob Marley fan ought to own this album. For the uninitiated, Legend is always the starting point, but, after that, this may not be such a bad choice for additions to the collection." — AllMusic
