The Maytals

Best Of



Released: 6th May 2016


out of stock

superb compilation of tracks from the famed Jamaican group includes the classic tracks ‘monkey man’, ‘sweet & dandy’, 'pressure drop' & ’54 46 was my number’.

Formed in the early sixties, the trio - Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert, Nathaniel ‘Gerry’ McCarthy and Henry ‘Raleigh’ Gordon - first found fame with a number of best-selling ska singles before signing with Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s Records late in 1967. The union with Kong proved irresistible & produced a succession of best-selling singles, following the producer’s tragic death in 1971, the trio went on to enjoy further international success, although their Beverley’s recordings are widely accepted as being their finest.
