Dem Vinyl Boyz EP 23 - Legend
This week Dem Vinyl Boyz are back and dropping the needle on the best selling reggae album of all time “Legend” by Bob Marley. Legend is a greatest hits collection of singles in its original vinyl format. It has sold over 12 million copies in the US, 3.3 million in the UK and an estimated 25 million copies sold globally and in 2003, the album was ranked number 46 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. It also went on maintaining the ranking in a 2012 revised list, but dropping to number 48 in the 2020 revised list.
Bob Marley and the Wailers “Legend” was such a massive success that even still as of December 13, 2022, Legend has spent a total of 760 nonconsecutive weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart—the second longest run in history. Legend is a historic album and remains a compelling introduction to Bob Marley’s music and to reggae as a whole.
