If theres a Mt. Olympus
on Jamaica, occupied by fun-loving, capricious gods of Reggae
music, then Toots Hibbert is certainly a member of that select
pantheon. After all, this is the man who gave Reggae its name
and who has been a leader in each stage of the genres evolution.
Above and beyond all rightful claims to have been there,
done all that, the joyful, very soulful voice always sets
Toots apart from the rest.
Sunsplash Records is proud to offer
a second collection on CD of Toots memorable, energetic
performance from Reggae Sunsplash 82, the year of the tribute
to Bob Marley, who had just passed away. Formerly available on
cassette only, the original tapes have been carefully remastered
for the digital domain to preserve the best qualities of analog
recording, the warmth and the fullness of sound.
For fans of Toots & the Maytals,
this is a must have. If youre not a fan of Toots, there
can be only one reason: You just havent heard him yet.
