Throwback Thursday - Bob Marley and the Wailers
June 19, 2014

Last June, we were excited about the new release from Tuff Gong Records, the Legends Remixed album, featuring the music of Bob Marley and the Wailers.



The album stayed on top of two of our charts - World and College - for almost the entirety of it's stay on the new rack (just about four months), and continued spinning well after it was added to our library. H-Man of Enjoy the Ride and the Divided Sky had this to say on the record:

Redo of landmark album remixed by sons Ziggy and Stephen Marley, Jason Bentley, The Thievery Corporation and Nickodemus among others. Much care was given not to destroy Marley's gem, but to bring it into the contemporary music scene so a new generation can enjoy.

Now, a year later, Ziggy Marley's latest release, Fly Rasta, also out on Tuff Gong, takes the top spot on the World Charts almost weekly.
