MAY 10, 1975 – “BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS” – charted with their “Natty Dread” album, reaching #92.  It was the first of seventeen chart albums through 1995.  The band was originally called the “Wailin’ Wailers” because they used to start out crying.  Bob Marley worked alternatively as a forklift driver, a waiter, a Chrysler assembly line worker, and a lab assistant at DuPont Chemicals before succeeding as a reggae star.
