Throughout the '60s and '70s, Toots and The Maytals recorded a slew of ska, rocksteady and reggae hits that remain mainstays of the Jamaican songbook, including “Pressure Drop,” “54-46 That's My Number,” “Bam Bam,” “Monkey Man,” “Sweet and Dandy,” and “Do the Reggay,” a 1968 single that is often credited for naming the then-burgeoning genre. The original Maytals dissolved ages ago, but leader Frederick “Toots” Hibbert continues to tour heavily, his soulful croon untouched by age. On the 2005 album True Love, he teamed with a host of guests like Willie Nelson, Keith Richards and The Roots to revisit the Maytals' biggest hits. Last year he released an album of new material, Flip & Twist.
