About The Wailers
would get their start nearly half a century ago, with an original lineup that consisted of the legend himself, Bob Marley,
as well as Bunny Livingston and Peter Tosh. The trio would be the definitive spark that would set off the reggae revolution
all across the world. Bob would soon take the leading role in the Wailers, eventually reforming the group in his name with
Bob Marley & The Wailers. Marley would add established musicians such as Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, as well as various
member of fellow reggaeins The Upsetters.
Bob Marley and the Wailers would be monumental world successes, with the work
done by the band among the most fundamental pieces of reggae music - or perhaps of all music - in existence today. The band
released a steady stream of albums with each better than the last, gaining international acclaim that continued to grow even
after 1981, with the untimely death of world icon and frontman Bob Marley. Despite losing Bob, the Wailers would continue
to wail on under the leadership of Barrett and Junior Marvin, retaining their signature soul moving sound despite losing their
formidable front man and close friend Bob Marley.
The band has demonstrated the true reggae lives on despite the loss
of its greatest contributor. The Wailers would keep up a busy tour schedule, all the while hitting the touring schedule and
recording several more genre shifting records that would continue in the course earlier set by Bob and the band. With their
extensive tours and full length recordings, the band has informed the musical workings of various new wave reggae fusion acts,
including Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, and 311. Today, the band consists of Wailers both old and new, with their lineup consisting
of heartful crooner Koolant Brown, Aston Barrett slapping the bass, keyboardist Keith Sterling, aptly named percussionist
Drummie Zeb, and Audley Chisholm and Cegee rounding out the band's sound with rhythm guitar and backing vocals. While the
band visits the recording studio less often than before, they still embark on global tours that sell out crowds wide and far,
including this year's Legend tour which plays one of the most memorable Marley albums to date in its entirety.
Legend would be released in 1984, a compilation album of all the best of the best of the Marley era Wailers. The
album would be an incomprehensible commercial success, moving tens of millions of copies and gaining widespread critical acclaim
from all corners of the music world. With perfect scores from AllMusic, Sputnikmusic, and critic Robert Christgau, the album
also was ranked as the forty sixth greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone and continues to sell thousands of copies each
day. The album contained all of the greatest Wailer hits, including "Stir it Up", "Exodus", "Is This Love", "No Woman, No
Cry", and "Buffalo Soldier".
The band's first post Bob release would be 1989's I.D., released on the Atlantic record
level and produced in its entirety by members of the band. The album would be highly collaborative in nature, with writing
credits going to over six members of the band. The driving force behind the album, however, would be Junior Marvin, who penned
or helped pen almost all works on the album. The record would spawn a flurry of hits, including "Solution", "Children of the
World", "Love is Forever", and "Have Faith in Jah".
Hot on the heels of their previous release, the Wailers put out
Majestic Warriors in 1991, this time working with A&M Records. The album would feature outside producer Gordon Mack on
the album, and again was a collaborative effort. The album would be topped off by a modern rendition of "Could You Be Loved",
the Bob Marley penned favorite and a tribute to his special spot in the hearts of all the members of the band. The album also
included hits such as "Band Mind People", "Dancing Boys", and "Trip".
The Wailers have formed their
own offshoot band, dubbed The Original Wailers. The band consists of old school Wailers members and tours on mostly older
Marley era works.
