If you are a fan of roots reggae, you already know Toots and the Maytals. This release is another classic from one of Jamaica's best performers. The listener gets what one has come to expect from this master of Jamaican music. Although Toots has always played music which is unmistakenly West Indian, he has also never been afraid to incoporate other influences such as American soul, blues, and country. This album has a straight up blues rocker(Johnny Cool) and a duet with Bonnie Raitt(Premature) along with some great roots reggae and even some nyabinghi.
Throughout, Toots and his band really deliver the goods. No drum machines, no samples, no rap. This album could have been released in the 1970's, when roote reggae was at its peak. I think all those who appreciate classic roots regggae that has that rural west country, Jamaica feel will love this disk.

Often we may hear of bands we listened to in the past with recent releases and I won't name names, but I often feel that a band has lost something in the ensuing time, it might not have to do with age but just in the direction that music and reggae say have gone!

And I read one reggae fan with a webpage that said basically, Toots and the Maytals basically have their own style and might even be thought to be outside of a definition of being Reggae, Soul and even Ska and Rocksteady ...even if some commentators point to T and the M as being the first users of the term Reggae with their song "Do the reggay."

First off, though many of us knew of Bob Marley even when he was alive and maybe some of us had his records, that is not the end of much less the beginning of reggae.

So, it must pertain to most people, like what was their first reggae outside of Bob Marley? Well for me (not including American top 40, say Desmond Drekker's "Israelites" when we really had not the feintest idea of reggae or even some Johnny Nash) it wasn't so much a reggae song but all the same, it was the Skatalites doing "Guns of Navaronne."

Although it is out there, I rarely find the great version of "Guns of Navaronne" that was so stunningly good that I found on the compilation album "Ska Party '67"; but on this Toots and the Maytals CD the track Amazon has listed as "Guns of Navaronne" is actually on the CD listed as "Medley: Tribute to Coxsone/Guns of Navaronne" and though it is done in part with harmonies, it is a very faithful rendition of the orginal along with the man made vocal effects in it and maybe, what is it? the accompanying trombone solo. Absolutely marvelous and a fine tribute to Dodd.

All the tracks on this album are good, but the leadoff cut, Johnny Coolman, is the most happily infectious tune I have heard this year. Just try to not hit replay. Highly recommended.

Toots has not missed a lick over the year. Having Bonnie Raite sing on one of the songs is impressive.

I have listen this record driving in my car, i was with a girl and we loved this music... Not just reggae but a blend of soul music. Derek Trucks features the first song and added a southern touch to the sound. I love Toot's voice, so low down and black.
