Nope! Not those Wailers, these Wailers were from Tacoma Washington and one of their biggest fans (according to Wikipedia) was a young Jimi Hendrix. They recorded She’s Coming Home for a Christmas album they shared with fellow garage bands The Sonics and The Galaxies (weird… Sonics (like Sonic Boom) and Galaxies like in 500!) in 1965

Dean & Britta’s version was gender adjusted, recorded (again) with Sonic Boom and released on a single by Chimney Rocks! Records (the b-side of which has already put in an appearance on this list).
