The first & second comings,
This review is from: The Fabulous Wailers: the Original Golden Crest Masters (Audio CD)
As vocalists the Wailers are also rans but as instrumentalists they are in a different class
The biggest hit was Tall Cool One which due to the British Invasion (accoeding to the copious sleeve note) charted again 6 years after it first hit in 1959.Which was the year North West bands became massive.
Apparantly the Kingsmen's version of Louie Louie was modelled on their 1963 version which was made with Rockin' Ronnie Roberts.
A wonder though they got away with Beat Guitar No 2 as its exactly the same melody and arrangement as Floyd Cramer's Flip Flop & Bop
