The Wailers came from a ska vocal group of the same name, created by Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963. By late 1963 singers Junior Braithwaite, Beverley Kelso, and Cherry Smith had joined. By the early 1970s, brothers Aston and Carlton Barrett had joined the band. After Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left in 1974, Marley began touring with new band members.
