Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/2/92, p.58
"...the entire first disc amply displays the Wailer's early ska and rock-steady fire....there are tons of fascinating obscurities and previously unreleased cuts...a collector's wet dream..." - Rating: B+
Entertainment Weekly - 11/26/99, p.99
"...a satisfying overview of one of music's greatest careers." - Rating: A
Q - 11/92, p.131
5 Stars - Indispensable - "...virtually every song is shot through with an ever-dawning sense of freedom.....his music is all a matter of spirit and that spirit was simply larger and more generous than any other contemporary musician....This set is an almost overwhelming celebration of the richness and abundance of Marley's career..."
Dirty Linen - Dec./Jan. 92/93, p.53
"...even if you already own all of the Wailers' Island recordings on CD as well as various vinyl 'bootlegs' of earlier Wailers material (such as the BIRTH OF A LEGEND albums), there is still more than enough fresh material to make this a worthwhile purchase..."
Melody Maker - 10/10/92, p.39
"...a treasure chest of melodic militancy almost unimaginable in these censorphobic times..."
Musician - 1/93, p.88
"...Whether you seek the bedrock of Ras Bob's formidable legacy or new insights into his stylistic inventions, SONGS OF FREEDOM paints a full-length portrait that casts a gigantic shadow..."
Village Voice (3/2/93, p.5) - Ranked #1 in the Village Voice's list of the 10 Best Reissues Of 1992.
Stereo Review (2/93, p.120) - "...includes just about everything he did worth hearing....It's well remastered, too, and the accompanying booklet conveys the essence of the man and his accomplishments far more succinctly than any current biography..."
NME (Magazine) - 12/18/99, p.28
9 out of 10 - "...profiles the whole of Marley's musical life....It shows how [he] married fierce, brave insurrectionary lyrical statements with some of the most poignant and lovely melodies on tape....as pure and sweet and powerful as the day he sung it."
