And So Little Time: Bob Marley and the Wailers with "So Much Things to Say"



Lay back, chill out and listen to Bob Marley and the Wailers lay it down on So Much Things to Say. Bob Marley and the Wailers was a Jamaican 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. Marley died in 1981 of malignant melanoma, and Tosh was killed in a gang holdup at his home in 1987. You can find So Much Things to Say on Bob Marley and the Wailers' 1977 album Exodus.
