out of stock

toots & the maytals' first lp for chris blackwell was originally released in the early '70s, & it includes solid sides like 'pomp & pride', a whacked-out restructuring of richard berry's ‘louie, louie’ & the wonderful title track.

blackwell reissued a bulked-up version of funky kingston in the mid-'70s on his mango subsidiary, adding in the immortal ‘pressure drop,’ the brilliant ‘time tough,’ & a reimagining of john denver's ‘country roads’ (simply called ‘country road’), to make a much better & stronger set.
