Toots & The Maytals – Louie Louie [1972]

Oh no you d’int! You cant just go dropping Grand Master Flash AND Toots & The Maytals in the same sitting. Thats too much stacked greatness for 1 blog to handle! But since we’re already here, lets go on a Maytals Marathon. Funky Kingston is probably one of the best reggae albums ive ever heard. Just enough soul in the proceedings to keep it from sinking under the weight of a thousand other reggae releases in the early 70’s.

I love this reworking of the Kingsmen track, done away is that iconic riff and dropped in instead is 5 minutes of blazing sunshine drenched reggae. Chuffin’ magic!
