To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
When you listen to the final albums of Johnny Cash or Leonard Cohen they sound old. They have a wisdom and perspective that comes with age but they are obviously and past their physical peak and you can hear that in their voices. The same is true of Bob Dylan's latest offering. The same is not true of Frederick "Toots" Hibbert. His voice sounded as young, fresh and strong as ever. Hard to believe he was 77 when he recorded this. He did share the wisdom of Cash, Cohen and Dylan though. These is a fine collection of songs.
Hard to believe that he is no longer with us. R.I.P. Toots
Rest In Peace Toots. You delivered one hell of good album before leaving us.
Warning, warning being my favourite track off this album as it reminds me so much of my childhood, discovering reggae music and listening to my mom's vinyl in my bedroom in the early 70's.
A great dancehall vibe on this album along with some rocksteady, ska and old soul. Toots was and is a reggae giant. Unmistakable voice that bellows out from his heart.
He was about to come to England after the US on tour to promote this album and passed away before knowing how this, his final piece of work was appreciated and loved by his adoring fans. 1 Love brother Toots.
I cannot believe this is a Toots and the Maytals album I hate to say it but I did not like one track on the album it sounded awful. I cannot believe they actually listened to it and then decided to release the album. I let several people listen to this album and they all had the same opinion as myself. One suggested I send it back that is how bad this album is.
