Perfect Song for Winter: Bob Marley and the Wailers with "Coming In from the Cold"
Today's random song is Coming In from the Cold by Bob Marley and the Wailers, a reggae and ska band formed by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963. Many of the band's early songs were recorded with the aid of Lee "Scratch" Perry and his studio band The Upsetters. The Wailers were known for recording some of the most notable reggae songs in history. Tosh and Wailer left the band in 1974, leading to a revamped Wailers lineup, and Marley died in 1981 of malignant melanoma. Coming In from the Cold can be found on the Bob Marley and the Wailers 1980 album Uprising.
