Toots is AMAZING - find a better collection though.
(2 out of 5 stars)
"There is no doubt Toots and the Maytals are Reggae greats, reggae pioneers, and deserve a lot more recognition than they have recieved.
The songs on this collection are edited (shortened)horribly however. Most notable is the intro to, and the bridge of "54-46 Was My Number", both being completely ommited. Many of the edits eliminate the R&B and gospel influenced parts of the tracks that make Toots and Maytals unique.I would reccomend instead of this collection, you should try "20th Century Masters, The Best of Toots & The Maytals, The Millenium Collection" The edits are not present, and song choices are better (contains all the great songs the previous reviewer reccomended)."
