LEGEND, the 1984 greatest hits album from Bob Marley and The Wailers, continues its impressive run on the Billboard charts.

This week, it sits at the top of the publication’s Catalog Album chart, where it has logged over 1000 weeks.

The remixed version of Legend, released over one week ago, debuted at number one on Billboard’s Reggae Album chart.

Legend Remixed is the first Marley title to top Billboard’s Reggae Album chart since the soundtrack to the documentary Marley, claimed that spot one year ago.

The collection includes new mixes of Marley tracks such as Three Little Birds, guest appearances from his sons Ziggy and Stephen and artiste/producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

Legend was released by Island Records three years after Marley’s death from cancer at age 36. It has sold over 25 million units worldwide.
