The Wailers - Capitol Records Studio Session. Hollywood, CA 10-24-1973 


In 1973,  The Wailers scored a 17 show gig, opening for the "#1 black band in America" Sly & The Family Stone. It was  before their 5th show when Sly fired them and kick them off the tour.   It is thought Sly did this because the Wailers were outplaying them night after night with the audience was chanting "Wail-lers - Wail-lers" well into Sly's set.  I have read the hitched a ride to Los Angeles where  they perform this amazing rehearsal session at Capitol Records in Hollywood on Oct 24th 1973.  I think Lee Jaffe recorded the video footage.  I have included the Video and audio from both edited version and the non edited version with all its stops and restarts.
