Toots & The Maytals Song List
Frederick “Toots” Hibbert was born in May Pen, Jamaica, in 1945. At the age of thirteen, he moved to Kingston and brought his background in gospel music to the local music scene. After meeting Henry “Raleigh” Gordon and Nathaniel “Jerry” Mathias, Toots formed the Maytals and began working with Byron Lee in 1966.
Early hits from the Maytals included “Daddy,” “Dog War,” and “Broadway Jungle.” As Jamaica music began to shift to reggae, Toots & the Maytals adapted their music to suit the new sound, but retained their gospel and soul roots, enabling them to maintain a unique sound that set them apart from the competition. They scored hits throughout the late 1960’s and 1970’s, including “Do the Reggay,” “Pressure Drop,” “Monkey Man” (which went on to become their first international hit), and “Pomps and Pride.” They released the best selling albums Funky Kingston (1973) and Reggae Got Soul (1975), and even toured with The Who as their opening act in the mid 1970’s. But despite their success, after nearly a decade, they disbanded in the early 1980’s and Toots went on to enjoy a solo career for the rest of the decade.
In the early 1990’s, however, Toots created a new Maytals and they’ve been going strong every since. Toots & the Maytals most recently released a highly anticipated album, True Love, in 2004. The album featured previously recorded material in re-recorded versions, with contributions from musicians such as Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, The Roots, and Bonnie Raitt. It went on to earn the Grammy for Best Reggae Album that year. With the Easy Star All-Start they recorded a version of Radiohead’s “Let Down” in 2006 for a tribute album, and in 2007 the band released Light Your Light, which was also nominated for a Grammy. The album Unplugged on Strawberry Hill (2012) also earned Toots another Grammy nod.
Toots & the Maytals have enjoyed thirty-one number one hits in Jamaica, making them a record-holding band. They continue to perform, tour, and record.
