Description: As Bob Marely and The Wailers began recording the album Natty Dread (1974), among the songs was one that needed the perfect guitar part to elevate it from pleasant ballad to legendary classic. That song was "No Woman, No Cry," and that guitar part was created and performed by Al Anderson. Anderson became the original guitarist for Bob Marely and The Wailers, recording and performing as the lead guitarist for the biggest reggae band in the world. Over 35 years later, Anderson helms the ship that is The Original Wailers - a band that is still performing the original Marley gems from that golden age of reggae, while complimenting them with new songs performed by a crop of young musicians destined to keep the fires of roots rock reggae stoked.
