Bob Marley and the Wailers – 2 CD Set
Reviewed by Beezher, 4/7/06
Bob Marley and the Wailers perform loads of Ska and Roots Reggae songs. Many of the songs also have Doo Wop vocal styling and the instrumentation is very simple and sweet for most of the songs.
Beezher’s Pics: CD1 - 2, 9, 6, and 19 / CD2 – 4, 5, 15, and 20
