The Heart of Rock and Soul # 606 The Wailers

'Reggae's international anthem. 'One good thing about music / When it hits you feel no pain.' Out of the mouths of four Trench Town (i.e. Kingston slum) postadolescents, the credibility was as instant as the dance groove. Nor were the two things separable. Any more than Bob Marley and Peter Tosh were at the time seperable. Soon enough unity disintegrated and Bob went on to arguably greater, certainly far bigger things. But certainly not truer or more powerful ones because there are none.'
