The Wailers In-depth Biography

The historical importance of the Wailers} is undeniable. They were one of the very first, if not the first, of the American garage} bands. Backing Rockin' Robin Roberts}, they revamped an obscure R&B} song called "Louie Louie"} into a 1961 local hit that served as the prototype for the countless subsequent versions of the most popular garage} song of the '60s. And their stomping, hard-nosed R&B}/rock} fusion inspired the Sonics}, who took the Wailers}' raunch to unimaginable extremes. While they anticipated the British Invasion} bands with their brash, self-contained sound, their inability to write first-rate original material, as well as their rather outdated sax and organ-driven frat rock}, put them in a distinctly lower echelon. As the decade progressed, the group did absorb mild folk-rock} and psychedelic} influences without great effect, either commercially or on their sound itself. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
