In the summer of 1964, the Wailers were adapting to the British Invasion. This was no more evident than on their fourth LP, “Wailers Wailers Everywhere,” one of the earliest American attempts at British-styled beat.
“This was a time that found the Wailers adjusting awkwardly to the changes wrought by the British Invasion, placing far more emphasis on vocal numbers and original material, with mixed results. For Wailers Wailers Everywhere, their first LP recorded after the onset of the British Invasion, the group members wrote most of the songs themselves. It was a change from previous Wailers efforts, as the sound usually reflected the influences of the Beatles and other early British Invasion stars like the Dave Clark Five, as well as some of the harmony rock of the Beach Boys and the Four Seasons.” [AMG]
