Editorial Reviews


Celebrity guests don't always raise an album above the pack, but they do in this case. -- Boston Globe, March 26, 2004

Product Description

What do Ryan Adams, Trey Anastasio, Jeff Beck, Ken Boothe, Marcia Griffiths, Eric Clapton, Bootsy Collins, The Roots, Ben Harper, Terry Hall, The Skatalites, Willie Nelson, No Doubt, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, Shaggy, Rahzel, U-Roy, Bunny Wailer and Rachael Yamagata have in common?

The all-star guests on "true love" range from legends Like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, The Roots, and Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music’s greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice - drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight.

All in all, this album is one of the best I have heard in a long time.
David Weiner
The music is also fun, lively, and entertaining, a very good CD that will appeal to a wide range of reggae fans.
smart buyer
They are interpreted so beautifully that they may as well be new songs.

I've loved Toots and the Maytals for years but finally he
may have the chance to bring his sounds and band to a wider audience.
Thanks to the bounty of talents that surround this ageless
giant of sound and groove, many of his overlooked gems and
lesser know vital cataloge now comes to life again. I've been
listening to this collection since it came out this
past tuesday and I first heard the last cut on the cd, "Blame it on me"
with one of my most anticipated vocalist Rachel Yamagata. I
can't say enough about this talented singer, just listen to
her debut ep, she's got a future! Bonnie Raitt, I can't say
enough about this singer either, she has a voice and style that
you can't pigeon hole in a top 40 record but she's so talented
she can work with anyone and make it credible. She shines with
Toots on this first Triple A single "True love is hard to find" I'm starting to hear this song
on radio stations that have some balls.(which aren't many). Eric Clapton adds
some great guitar work to "Pressure drop", instant radio play (thats if radio stations weren't so "pressured into such a tight
playlist????? Remember what they did with Carlos Santana's
collection of "friends", the "friends" current sounds sold that
Cd into the grammy stratosphere? I can't help but see good things for this great collection. Even someone like Willie Nelson, who starts this cd off come off sounding so good with
Toots and that reggee sound, so smooth and enjoyable.
I love so many of thsee songs especially "Funky Kingston" with
Bootsy Collins and the Roots, "Time tough" with Ryan Adams,
"Monkey Man" grooves with that speed of light Gwen Stefani vocal.

The greatest voice of all reggae acts (sorry, Bob Marley fans) returns to the limelight with remade versions of his greatest hits alongside an all-star cast.
The good news is that most of the big stars don't get in the way (No Doubt, Trey Anastasio, Eric Clapton). In fact, you have to listen fairly closely to dig Gwen Stefani or Anastasio out of the mix, they're treated basically as background singers.
There are some duets, notably with Bonnie Raitt (on the title tune), original Wailer Bunny Wailer ("Take A Trip") and Willie Nelson on the Nelson-penned "Still Is Still Moving To Me." Unfortunately, Toots also lets Keith Richard sing along on "Careless Ethiopians" and that song isn't quite as successful as the others. And "Funky Kingston," with guest shots from Bootsy Collins and Roots, doesn't have the sweaty intensity as the original, but it's a fun groove anyway.
Guest stars aside, the entire CD rocks with a tuneful, tropical bounce. And surfing on top of it all is the remarkable voice of Toots Hibbert, (I'll say it again) the best singer in all of reggae. This is a great companion for your springtime/summer barbecue and an indispensable soundtrack for drivin' tru da Babylon.

Oh man, I love this CD. I cannot get enough.
They're all duets, but Toots is still always the main attraction. It's def not a tribute album. The supporting musicians are just that: supporting. In fact, the guest stars are so subtle in some of the songs, I wouldn't even know who they were if not for the liner notes.

This album is probably more "mainstream," so fans of old school Toots might be a little annoyed. But I loved it. And bonus, it can be kind of a gateway drug for those who need an introduction to classic reggae/ska.

Great production value, which is great. A lot of old reggae is authentic and great-sounding, but it's a treat for me to hear the music recorded really well. I guess some might think this overproduced compared to classic reggae, but clearly hearing all the instruments and backing vocals made me so happy.

For me, the Clapton, No Doubt, and Trey duets are the best. I've always loved Gwen Stefani's cartoony-genius voice, but hearing her back up Toots is like a dream for me. (and for her, I imagine!)
And as always, the non-"celebrity" backing musicians and singers are top notch.

Format: Audio CD
this jamaica soul singing legend (who supposedly was the first to include the word 'reggae' in a song way back in the 60s) has remade alot of his classic songs with the help of a wide range of contemporary and classic singers and musicians. alot of the time there's no point in re-recording your past hits but in this case it works. the wide range of guest artists bring their unique talents to each song so there's something different to hear on each cut. and toot's voice is still a marvel-remember alot of these songs were originally recorded by him decades ago. pick up the original recordings and you'll hear just how well his voice has held up. of course on a c-d you don't get the great live show that toots and the maytals put on....part otis redding//part james brown. when i saw him in l-a back in the 90s...he put on a 3 1/2 hour performance complete with dance moves and splits. catch him live if you can...
till then... we have another 'keeper' in toot's musical and reggae legacy.
