Toots & the Maytals - 20th Century Millennium Edition
Quotes from amazon.com (avg 4.5 stars)
"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."
"Before I bought this album, I hardly knew anything about reggae music. I heard the song "Funky Kingston" performed on Saturday Night Live with Toots (and the Maytals), Roots, and Boots(as in Bootsy Collins). I wanted to know more about these guys, Toots and the Maytals.
When I popped this disc in my player, I immediately knew it was different from anything in my collection. I typically listen to artists like U2, R.E.M., and Coldplay. But this album is so funky, so lively, and so much fun. My favorites are the first two tracks, the aforementioned "Funky Kingston" and the reggae cover of John Denver, "Take Me Home, Country Roads." Get this album and open yourself up to another world of music."
