Parsed into three volumes labeled somewhat cryptically "Duppy Conqueror," "Soul Rebel," and "Mellow Mood," this collection of the best from reggae's avatar is not particularly well packaged, but for Marley fans it's a must-have. Among the assets are the sheer volume of tracks; inclusion of less well known Marley covers, like "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and Chuck Berry's "Memphis"; and the "Soul Rebel" volume's focus on his early Wailers era. But more creatively assembled Marley compilations also tell the story. While this effort is ambitious in track selection, it lacks liner notes. Shockingly, Marley's original trio mates--Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh--are heard but uncredited. --Elena Oumano
There are much better

"This is not a good set, get Mr. Chatterbox!!, or any of the Complete Bob Marley double albums (Vol. 1, 2,or 3 OR ALL OF THEM!) for much better sound quality. Nothing wrong with the material in this, but I've heard it, and it isn't kosher."
Not what I expected ... the sound quality was terrible

"Being an avid Bob Marley fan I understand the different stages in which he recorded in, but when I think of box set I anticipate re-touched, digitally remastered or something along those lines. Not something that sounds like it was recorded in my basement with a half fuctional microphone!"
Don't buy it!

"I got this collection under the Name of "Bob Marley: 40Classic Performances" ...and the sound quality is absolutely terrible. Also ... there are songs performed by Peter Tosh and they aren't creditet. It's not at all a Bob Marley Box Set. I bought it for "Chances are" and "There she goes", and they are of course worth the low price I paied along with all the other songs. But I can't recommend this unless you are a ABSOLUTELY diehard fan and even then you will know the songs on this recordings and have them on some other record. If you want a good collection, take LEGEND."
