Funky Kingston

Funky Kingston

With Toots Hibbert's gritty vocals at the fore, this is the closest reggae ever got to American soul music. 

Artist: Toots and the Maytals

Genre: Dub

Label: Music On Vinyl

Release date:

By 1975, rock audiences were finally getting heavily into reggae, thanks to the success of Bob Marley's first two albums and Jimmy Cliff's soundtrack for The Harder They Come. Funky Kingston, a collection of early 1970s Maytals singles, was released to capitalise on the newfound demand for Jamaican sounds, and it did not disappoint - nor will it disappoint anyone who comes across it today.
