From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Although this may not be the Wailers we all remember, this incarnation has proven that they have the ability to continue the traditions laid down by the legendary Bob Marley. Session players Junior Marvin and Al Anderson, who both appeared on Natty Dread and Exodus, have done a masterful job of reinterpreting Bob’s classic work, yet they still manage to honor his integrity by not straying too far from the original compositions. This will be The Wailers' second stop through Chicago (their first being earlier in the summer at the Green Music Festival), and it's no question they’ll be eager to share Bob's timeless music. (J.
