Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: FUNKY KINGSTON (1972)/IN THE DARK (1973).
Toots & The Maytals: Toots (vocals); Ralphus "Raleigh" Gordon, Nathaniel "Jerry" Pen (background vocals).
Producers include: Warwick Lynn, Chris Blackwell, Dave Bloxham, Neville Hinds, Carlton Lee.
Recorded at Dynamic Sounds, Kingstion, Jamaica and Island Studios, London, England. Includes liner notes by David Katz.
This is part of Island Records "Reggae Classics" series.
This release collects two of Toots & the Maytals' finest releases of the mid-'70s: Funky Kingston, generally viewed as their finest album, and its follow-up, In the Dark. This is some of the finest music of the rocksteady era, and with improved sound over the individual album releases, a great place to start for Toots & the Maytals or the rocksteady movement in general. ~ Sean Westergaard
