The Maytals

MONKEY MAN / FROM THE ROOTS: 2 ON 1 EXPANDED EDITION

Doctor Bird



cd

Released: 13th Jul 2018

£11.99


these two hit-ridden albums make up an essential boss reggae collection, and also include three rare alternate versions of album tracks; notably ‘Monkey Man’ and ‘She’s My Scorcher’.

Led by the dynamic Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert, the Maytals were at the vanguard of the reggae explosion of late 1969/early 1970. Soon after their breakthrough single, ‘monkey man’, breached the UK pop charts in 1970, trojan issued a popular LP of the same title, featuring a dozen of the trio’s most popular recordings of the past 6 months. The Maytals remained one of Jamaica’s leading acts over the years that immediately followed, with their popularity resulting in a recording deal with Island Records in 1973. Trojan then gathered a dozen or so of their earlier works for a belated follow-up to their Monkey Man LP, namely “From The Roots”.
