Toots & The Maytals- Funky Kingston-1973 Jamaica

Toots and the Maytals, originally called The Maytals, are a Jamaican musical group and one of the best known ska and rock steady vocal groups. The Maytals were formed in the early 1960s and were key figures in popularizing reggae music. Frontman Toots Hibbert's soulful vocal style has been compared to Otis Redding, and led him to be named one of the 100 Greatest Singers by Rolling Stone.(wiki)
From their 1973 album "Funky Kingston" i chose the self-titled song and their version of Richard Berry's song "Louie Louie".
