What a smile-in-a-box this CD is! You can hardly help tapping your feet or bopping your head as you listen to it. I've been a fan of Toots for years, along with other reggae of that era; this CD was replacing a couple of older albums. I was expecting more from the CD. Unfortunately, I must have gotten a lemon. The sound is a little muffled, the mid-range is muddy, the highs seem compressed or clipped, and the bass is indistinct. Sounds similar in my car, and on my Klipsch (horn-tweeter) computer speakers, and on my Paradigm Monitor 7's on the "real" stereo. And the Klipsch & the Paradigm are noted for teh "brightness" of their sound! It's as if it was recorded from behind the drum set, with the monitors facing away from the microphone. Sounds like a bad bootleg copy. The mp3 preview clip on the Amazon web site is brighter & more forward-sounding than the actual CD! I may return it & try for a replacement.

Anyway, Toots & the Maytals get a 5-star rating, as does the selection of included tracks - top notch stuff.

I got acquainted with Toots and The Maytals via old vinyl album of 'Funky Kingston' . I bought 'The Best of' because I recently heard '(I Got) Dreams to Remember',and wanted a copy of it

After putting it in the player, I noticed the versions are a little different, but better than takes of the same songs on other CDs. On 'Funky Kingston' I loved their version of that old John Denver hit "Take Me Home, Country Roads'; You can imagine my surprise when that song's recording here came through different, every bit better and with the depth of the original analog recording.

The version here of '54-46 Was My Number' is a perfect example of that immediacy...It captures the passion of the live performance as so very few 'Live' recordings do. Same for 'Sweet and Dandy'. On 'Pressure Drop, I feel like I'm right on stage.

If you are looking for your first taste of Toots and the Maytals, I wholeheartedly recommend you purchase this one.

After all, 'The Millennium Collection 20th Century Masters' recording says it all.

In case you don't already know it, Toots and the Maytals are one of the best bands in the world - the kings of feelgood, upbeat reggae music. Their concerts are spiritual experiences and much of their recorded output is some of the most soulful and listenable music you'll ever hear. If you're new to Toot's music, this CD is a good place to begin. It has most of the essential Toot's songs (greatest hits). If you are a hardcore fan like me, it leaves you wanting a little more. I feel this disc would be nearly perfect if "Dreams To Remember" was left off and "Never You Change" and "True Love Is Hard To Find" were included. Aside from the early classics, the producers of this disc had the good taste to include "Freedom Train" from the "Toots In Memphis" album. Toot's version of this tune is so powerful and well-recorded. I definitely recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys cookin', soulful music.

When listening to this C.D., you can just sense the great joy and fun they had recording it. It is the kind of C.D. you can't help but feel happy and wanna get up and dance. Especially with great tracks like the remake of John denver's country road. (my personal favorite) I am also partial to Pomp and Pride. Anyone who likes Reggae/ska will probably love this c.d. Toots and the Maytails were a very important part in early Reggae music in the 60's and 70's It is also a great starter disc for people who have interest in reggae music. It is truely a classic that stands alone

Toots and the Maytals have the happiest rythm and beats. I just want to smile and dance when I listen to this. I am not familiar enough with the group to know if these would be the right song selections for the ultimate greatest hits album, but I do know that I like em a lot! All the songs are layed back, happy, and just make me think of tropical beaches and good times. If you have heard "take me home" or some of there other stuff, you probably won't be disappointed if you buy this.
