Toots & the Maytals' edition of 20th Century Masters is a very good summation of the group's greatest songs and therefore, their very importance. This doesn't have every great song they've ever done, and is not as comprehensive as other overviews assembled, but as a budget-line collection, it's first-rate, containing nearly everything a casual fan could want, including "Funky Kingston," "54-46 Was My Number," "Pressure Drop," and "Monkey Man." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
