Toppa Top 10: Ten Cover Songs by Bob Marley and the Wailers

February 6, 2013


I Need You (Chuck Jackson)
Wailers I Need You

Bob sings a somber lead on this Studio One version of Chuck Jackson’s Brill Building R&B ballad “I Need You,” which is not to be confused with another early Wailers tune also called “I Need You.” That song, retitled “I Need You So”ย  in later years to avoid confusion, happens to also be a cover, of “Baby, Baby I Need You” by the Temptations. Meanwhile, the Wailers would also cover Jackson’s “Can’t You See” with Peter Tosh on lead.
