Burning Sounds Records has reissued this standout recording on CD. Toots & The Maytals’ ska-heavy 1999 album features my favorite Maytals tune, “Pressure Drop” (I was introduced to Toots by The Clash’s cover of it on Black Market). The late Frederick “Toots” Hibbert and the band set a wicked pace from their opening cover of The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me,” with inspired playing and singing throughout. This recording is a high-water mark in the Maytals’ discography.
