The Maytals - 2CD Set Led by the dynamic Frederick 'Toots' Hibbert, The Maytals are rightly regarded as one of the greatest singing trios in the history of Jamaican music. During an incredible recording career that spanned six decades, the group scored hit after hit on the island's music charts, with their inimitable, unique blend of fervent gospel and down-home country seemingly impervious to changes in styles and fashion. The best of their work, however, is widely regarded to be their rock steady and early reggae recordings for Leslie Kong's revered Beverley's Records during the late Sixties and early Seventies; a period that spawned groundbreaking work such as '54-46', 'Monkey Man' and 'Do the Reggay', to name but a few.

The Essential Artist Collection brings together the very best of their output from this period, including the above tracks, along with numerous other classics, such as 'Sweet And Dandy', 'Pressure Drop' and 'Night And Day'.

Available as a 50 track double CD, the collection superbly demonstrates just why the unforgettable music of The Maytals will continued to be loved and revered for many years to come.
