Toots and the Maytals
I, like everyone, enjoy Bob Marley.  But even Bob Marley can get old after a while.  MyOldKentuckyBlog has a post about another reggae band that I heard of, but can’t remember actually hearing.  Toots and the Maytals is a credited with coining the term “reggae”.  Their sound seems to make the connection from 50s and 60s music to more popular Jamaican music that everyone is familiar with today.  You’ve probably seen that Nissan Rogue commercial with the Clash’s take on their song “Pressure Drop.”  I just bought the “Very best of…” and it is a great listen.
