Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 344/500!

Following a successful appearance in the film "The Harder They Come" and tracking the building success of The Wailer's "Catch A Fire", Toots & The Maytals finally came into their own with their excellent debut album "Funky Kingston". Toots Hibbert's expressive and soulful voice is reminiscent of Otis Redding's but with a much more excitable delivery and with an even greater range. The usual vintage brace of great tracks includes killers like "Redemption Song", "Funky Kingston", ""Daddy's Home" and even a reggaefied version of Richard Berry's most covered classic "Louie Louie". "Funky Kingston" is rightfully regarded as a key album because it was one of the albums at the time which was responsible for introducing Reggae to a much larger audience. A major Reggae classic on with a great cover too!

"Loose, funky, exuberant, Kingston is the quintessential document of Jamaica's greatest act after Bob Marley. Showcasing some of the Maytals' best songs (including "Pressure Drop") and reaching out to borrow from soul, pop and gospel, Kingston introduced the world to Toots Hibbert, Jamaica's Otis Redding." -
