Legend is a greatest hits collection of Bob Marley & The Wailers songs, released by Island records on May 8, 1984 (see 1984 in music). It is the best selling reggae album of all time (13.5 million platinum in US), with sales of 25 million copies.. The original compilation, first issued on LP, contains 14 songs in their edited single format. Later it was released on CD with the same listing. It includes 10 of Marley's 11 top 40 UK hits at the time, plus three songs from the early configuration of the Wailers with Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston ("Stir It Up", "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up"), and the last song released on Marley's final non-posthumous album Uprising, the fan-favorite "Redemption Song".
