Control Your Temper

Let's have another one song mix, m'kay?

I know that Bob Marley's hits collection Legend is owned by virtually every person in the world.

I was freaky crazy about Mr. Marley and his Wailers in high school, and bought up all his records. Among the records I picked up was a piece of vinyl titled "Birth Of A Legend". The music on this record was a lot closer to ska then reggae -- it was from Mr. Marley's early musical career.

I was instantly smitten by a song called "Simmer Down". According to Wikipedia, the song was the Wailers' first single, and was a big hit in Jamaica in 1964. It boggles my mind a bit that this song was around when the Beatles were invading the US.

Anyways, here ya go.

The Wailers - Simmer Down

Enjoy it (or don't)!

i have 18 Bob Marley albums in mp3 format and don't have "Legends" although admittedly, i've tried to avoid post-humus collections.
