MUSIC REVIEW: The Wailers

MUSIC REVIEW: The Wailers

The Wailers have done little recording since some very productive years in the 1970s . But since Marley’s death in 1981, the band has maintained a touring presence in an effort to keep Marley’s music and message in the ears and minds of American listeners.

Anyone who was counting on a “greatest hits of reggae” show probably went home disappointed. The band did include a stirring rendition of “No Woman, No Cry,” as well as “One Love/ People Get Ready.” But to their credit, The Wailers dug pretty deep into their discography with tunes such as “Exodus,” “Forever Loving Jah,” “Bend Down Low” and “Lively Up Yourself.”
