The Wailers were a Jamaican vocal group formed in 1963 with a line-up that included future reggae legends Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny ‘Wailer’ Livingston.
The group scored its first big hit with the ska classic Simmer Down. The single, which hit number one on the Jamaican charts in February 1964, was written by Bob Marley and produced by ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd at Studio One.
With instrumental backing provided by The Skatalites, listen to the record here.
