  • £13.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Led by the dynamic Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert, the Maytals are rightly regarded as one of the greatest singing trios in the history of Jamaican music. During an incredible recording career that spanned six decades, the group scored hit after hit on the island’s music charts, with their inimitable, unique blend of fervent gospel and downhome country seemingly impervious to changes in styles and fashion.

The best of their work, however, is widely regarded to be their rock steady and early reggae recordings for Leslie Kong’s revered Beverley’s Records during the late Sixties and early Seventies; a period that spawned ground-breaking work such as 54 46, Monkey Man and Do the Reggay, to name but a few.

The Essential Artist Collection brings together the very best of their output from this period, including the above tracks, along with numerous other classics, such as Sweet And Dandy, Pressure Drop and Night And Day.

Available as a 28 track double vinyl LP.
