    Editorial Review

    For all his tattoos and bulked-up frat-boy persona, singer Bradley Nowell had real soul, which made his fatal heroin overdose even more tragic. There's more to this Long Beach, California, trio's debut, released shortly after Nowell's death in 1996, than white suburban punks imitating Jamaican ska music. The band comes up with great songs, notably the catchy MTV hit "What I Got"; spooky dub-reggae undertones, produced by the Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary, to go with the snappy horns; and surprisingly progressive lyrics that attack sexism and other social ills, especially on "Wrong Way." Like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fishbone, obvious forebears, Sublime become slightly tiresome after 17 songs, but the band is great in short doses. Read more

    Editorial Review

    Ska music has been deeply ingrained in the punk rock culture since the Clash adopted their rude boy stance near the end of the British punk invasion and the 2-Tone label put ska on the map. Suddenly, punks stopped kicking the crap out of each other long enough to dance. The debut release by Orange County, California's Sublime is a positively infectious record that marries varied styles of dub, reggae, rap, sampling, scratching, and badass dancehall ska with old-school punk overtones. Musicianship on this record is exceptionally tight, featuring Brad Nowell's innovative guitar work and bright, soulful voice.Packed with 40 oz. of rock (21 tracks) including the ultimate pot-smoking anthem "Smoke Two Joints" and the novelty hit "Date Rape."

    5-0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece.
    Amazing. I got this for Christmas a few years back and I was sad that it wasn't in my CD player earlier. I was a bit taken back by the first song but once I got into the rest of the disc I had absolutely nothing negative to say. it's incredible right up to the end where brad thanks everyone. i still enjoy just listening to him name drop with a catchy beat in the background. it's a complete shame he died because i'd pay any amount of money to hear these songs genuinely played by sublime. This disc has fast thrash, to slow easy chillin tunes with amazing bass, to almost rap like lyrical songs. if you don't have this CD yet i suggest you take a listen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 40oz.ofSublime
    this album rules!! sublime rules!!! this and their self-titled albums are their best. too bad that brad died right when they were beginning to take over the world. if you don't have this you need to get this. i have the version with the two later deleted tracks ''rawhide'' and ''get out!'' and i have the version without those 2 tracks and more artwork. both versions are great. Sublime forever!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This, right here, is "Sublime Gold"
    The production on this album bothered me for the longest time but this is truly a timeless classic. I don't know how many people realize that Sublime were the real deal. Up until their self-titled album, they were always under produced and best represented live. This music has so much heart though, it is unbelievable. There are more self-proclaimed singles on this CD than there are on the bands self-titled effort. A lot of these songs never saw the "light" we call radio, but songs like 40oz. To Freedom, Smoke To Joints, We're Only Gonna Die For Our Arrogance, Don't Push, 5446, Badfish, and basically the rest of the CD, are all great tunes. Artists like Bob Marley are receiving a lot of attention lately, and it seems to be a trend. Sublime is getting a lot of attention too, and it's okay. Sublime was a band that pioneered a sound. And, during the 90s, they were an out to all the grunge that dominated the era. This is also the only album I hear so many people complaining that they have worn out. Like that's a bad thing. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Underneath It All
    I give this album five stars for the track underneath it all alone. I actually I had never heard of no doubt until a couple of years ago when I heard underneath it all playing on the the radio. Since then I've been all ears ever since.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just scrapes the surface but still excellent.
    I got into No Doubt in 1995.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Get Tragic Kingdom instead.
    There are a couple of good songs on here. I love the song Sunday Morning. But then they went and put crappy songs like "Hey Baby" and "Hella Good" on it, and it just went to hell. Plus all of their most overrated songs, which I just am not a big fan of. No Doubt was awesome up until Return Of Saturn, and Gwen's solo career just sucks horribly. ... Read more

    If you like RBF you will love this album(s).All their greatest hits and some extensions of Suburban Rhythm (like a Rap, Country, Metal, The Strokes, Disco, and Punk versions)I have this CD through Yahoo's Music Unlimited ToGo service and I am still going to buy this for the DVD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST BAND EVER!!!!
    okay first of all. if you havent seen reel big fish in concert it is an absolute MUST!!.. the songs on these CDS are so much more alive. its the true way reel big fish should be heard. they are the coolest band EVER! oh and one more thing
    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing concert and price
    For the low low price of X dollars you not only get 2 cds (35 songs!) you also get a DVD with tons of extra stuff.Ska may be dead to main stream radio but if you dont' really care about the radio (and i know ya don't because radio is just commercials and crap, but anyways)I saw RBF when they came to my school and that show was amazing, listening/watching this is like reliving one of my favorite shows ever.Ok overall if you like RBF then you should get this because it has every song you like, either on the dvd or cds , and when it comes to live performances RBF sounds even better than on record.Check it and see ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Its a Great Beat
    I grew up on the English Beat and they are still one of my favorite bands today.There is something about the ska from that era that really appeals to me.My first exposure to them was in the early '80s when my brother was in college and the Beat were a college radio staple.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the beat you're looking for..
    Definitely could've been another song or two added to this best of, but what a brilliant collection. I can't keep it out of my cd player.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beat This: The Best of the English Beat
    This album is great package, it has most of the songs a fan of the English Beat could want.Durring high school I listened to a great deal of ska, roots reggae, 1st, 2nd and 3rd wave ska from England, the U.S. and Jamaica.I saw some English Beat but other than obscure record collectors its not something the average record store keeps in stock.

    Just as Green Day aped the Ramones, their contemporaries in this Southern California punk quartet aspired to be the Clash. But also like Green Day, Rancid's fresh approach and excellent songs (including the ska-punk MTV hit "Time Bomb" and the anthemic "Roots Radicals") rose far above tribute-band level. And poet Jim Carroll (Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars might as well enjoy it...
    Like them or loathe them, Rancid is passionate about music. This album is 4 friends playing music they love and it ends up sounding like it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars this really isn't a review just a thought
    I started reading some of these reviews and the whole "rip-off"/"wannabe" clash thing came up a lot. Yes this record in particular does have a lot of clash influence. but than again were SLF heavily influenced by the clash as well? and weren't the clash influenced by the ramones? then again who wasn't?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not for the "punk was dead in 1986" types.
    First off, to all the jaded and grumpy punk elitists, I feel for you.I really do.Punk is probably the most afflicted of any music genre.But if your sole purpose of writing a review is to "school" the ignorant and tell Rancid fans to listen to Op Ivy and The Descendants and The Ramones and Bad Religion etc, you're wasting your time.

    General Public's debut is arguably the ska supergroup's best work. Fresh out of the English Beat, Dave Wakeling recruited vocal partner Ranking Roger, as well as bassist Horace Panter (the Specials), keyboardist Mickey Billingham (Dexy's Midnight Runners), and veteran sax man Saxa for this set of shiny pop that is virtually all as infectious as the album's Top 40 hit, "Tenderness." Sure, the English Beat's best grooves found their way into the Fine Young Cannibals, but Wakeling and Roger's breathless vocals and undeniable hooks still shine on this undervalued album. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ready for the reissue treatment
    This is just a really awesome CD and I'm suprised it hasn't been given the re-issue treatment as of yet.All The Rage was released in late 1984 or early 1985.The US singles were "Tenderness" and "Never You Done That." The album itself contained a lot of different sounding songs.General Public toyed with reggae ala UB40 style on the song "General Public." I enjoy the whole album but really like songs like "Anxious," "Where's The Line," and "Are You Leading Me On?"There are some really great remixes to some of the songs on this album, I hope that it is given the reissue treatment soon.
    3-0 out of 5 stars TENDERNESS
    1984 Brit pop group dabbling in funk and ska yielded one great song; "Tenderness", a jingly piano-driven, bassoon enhanced, unabashedly sweet, catchy song that contains maybe the most representative line of '80s suppressed left wing agenda, - "I open my mouth and out pops something spiteful.", it rises above the hyperactive vocals and dull routine funk of the other songs, although the song, "General Public", adds Middle Eastern and progressive elements in a grandiose album closing. Band member, Ranking Roger (vocals, keyboards), has put out at least one fine Motown influenced solo album, and Clash guitarist Mick Jones, plays some rough guitar on some of the tracks. The band needs to lean more towards it's tender side than it's frantic funk.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Catchy and enjoyable
    Nothing spectacular here, just a thoroughly enjoyable pop/new wave/synth/whatever offering from an outfit that probably deserved more attention.Definitely worth getting. ... Read more

    i must agree with paulo. knopper or whatever his name is is definatly a idiot. i can never get enough sublime if it be 40oz to freedom,sublime.second hand smoke,robbin the hood, or anything else i missed. now that i think of it there was this one time me and my roommate got all spun out on lsd and listened to 40oz to freedom 5 times in a row. this is definatly a must have along with the 4 disc box set that comes out in nov.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Brad and Sublime: resurrected at last...!
    Everybody loves this album; why else would you have clicked on the icon in order to view the product?
    4-0 out of 5 stars Ha I agree w/paulo
    That reviewer Steve Kopper is dumb as nails. "For all Brad Nowell's bulked up frat boy persona"...haha what? He probably listens to emo & wears really tight sweaters (wait or is that the 'frat boy' thing to do now? Whatever it's all so confusing) Anyway anyone who knows good music knows Sublime, & if you don't you should. I'm only giving this 4 stars rather than 5 b/c they held out too much on the unreleased tracks, I would have liked there to be more. Still a lot of the tracks particularly on the second disc will probably be new to more casual fans & most people, while the more hardcore are hoping the upcoming box set is released & is mostly new, unheard material. If you don't have the Sublime self-titled I definately recommend this version to the original, I would definately give it a 5 star rating to you if that's your situation. I compared the sound quality of this to the already perfect original & actually they're very similiar if not exactly the same so they didn't go & ruin it w/an overbearing remaster or anything, like corporations sometimes tend to do on these rereleases. Cop it. One Love to Bradley, greatest of all time ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Remastered Version Has Great Sound
    This new re-mastered version of the classic "Exodus" by Bob Marley boasts truly improved sonics over the original.If you like Reggae,you can't go wrong with this release of the classic Reggae masterpiece. On the other hand,Time magazine called this record " the most important LP release of the 20th century." Give me a break.The writer must have been smoking some pretty good reefer when she wrote that. For a while it was considered ultra-chic for white people to listen to Reggae, hence the hyperbolic Time review of this record.I'll skip the Reggae "deep philosophy" and the seriously spaced out and comic book Rastafarian religion ( I mean honestly, these guys claim that the late Ethiopian dictator Haile Selassie, was God, the Creator of the Universe...now, isn't that silly?) please, and just listen to the music.And on that level, this is good stuff when the mood is right, and the sound is excellent, tight, bright, good bass, all around a great, maybe even timeless, Reggae record.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exodus - true album of the century
    The story behind Exodus is worthy of a book - in fact there is a book on the making of Exodus. This and the follow-up 'Kaya' were recorded and assembled in London in the 18 months following the attempted assassination of Marley in December 1976. The first side of the album (old-school vinyl fans know what I mean) is pure revolutionary reggae rock: Natural Mystic, So Much Things to Say, Heathen, Guiltiness, and Exodus. Drop-dead master reggae powered by the brother team of Aston 'Family Man' Barrett on bass and Carlton Barrett on drums.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Overated but yes good.
    I am a huge Bob Marley fan and always have been for about 20 years now, but listening to Exodus doesn't give me the same thrill as of the over albums such as Uprising, Natty Dread and Survival.

    The beat that got a generation dancing and brought ska back into the public eye. Produced by Elvis Costello, then still a boy wonder himself, the album built on the sound of the Specials' first two singles, and gave the world its first extended look at Two Tone. Inspired writing and arranging (much of it down to founder Jerry Dammers) with Terry Hall as the laconic front man made for a perfect combination, the riddim of ska and the speed of punk. As a testament to its power, two decades haven't lessened its impact. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Two tone ska classic.The perfect blend of strong song writing, fun, ska and touch of punk energy
    When this album came out most punx I knew were totally into it.I know I was.There'd been that music scene of the B 52's, BLONDIE, ELVIS COSTELLO, JOE JACKSON and TALKING HEADS.Punk had exploded onto the scene as well, of course, The SEX PISTOLS, The CLASH, The DEAD KENNEDYS, BLACK FLAG, CIRCLE JERKS, BAD BRAINS.Punk had always had some sorta connection to reggae, BAD BRAINS being the quintessinal creator of sublime punk as well as non-sleepy reggae songs.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Pressure Drop
    Well I'm not a kid, but M. Fantino, The Specials didn't influence The Clash on Pressure Drop. Toots and the Maytals did, seeing as how Pressure Drop is actually a Maytals song, not a Clash song. Just a heads up.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Err, ummm, Yeah...
    It irks me a little when people actually like bands like No Doubt and Sublime. It infuriates me that no one knows that the Specials could veritably rip all these new school California pansies new ones. The Specials are my all time favorite SKA band, and this is hands down the best album from them. It's got that stunning blend of punk, reggae and funk that no one has really been able to copy succesfully. Everyone I have revealed this album seems to adore it. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars They Are All Stars
    The 1990's really brought out the waves of pure feel-good party bands. For acts like The Offspring with Pretty Fly For A White Guy, and of course Sugar Ray featuring Mark McGrath and their upbeat track Fly, they have really been the staples of the feel good pop side of music. Smash Mouth is also no acception. During their glory days, mid-90's, and the early 2000's, the group has been really the leaders with making great party songs for everybody. They started right at the top, and still haven't lost their way. Yet, while there are some who have forgotten them, the songs definitely live on.

    Editorial Review

    As much as No Doubt have protested that they are a singular unit and not "Gwen and her guys," Gwen Stefani's much-touted duets with rapper Eve and techno mogul Moby did nothing to juice the boys' spotlight, which had been steadily dimming since the release of 2000's Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Rock Steady is really lovely underneath it all.
    Rock Steady is a great party album. No Doubt just let their hair down and did the damn thing. No, the music isn't ska, but it still has elements of island, reggae flavor mixed with rock. Their previous album Return of Saturn didn't really grab most people's attention despite being the best album of their career. I still marvel at how much I enjoy Return of Saturn, but I digress. Rock Steady comes one year later, and was met to better fanfare partly because the public was warmed over due to Gwen's solo appearances with Eve and Moby. Also, the music is simpler and catchier, which seems to be what the masses want.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD!
    I have had this for 4 years now, and I am not the least bit tired of it. It is catchy, kind of ska, and has Gwen Stefani's very intense writing. But her lyrics are a bit softer in this CD. The music video for "Hey baby" is included on this CD, and it is just about the best music video I have ever seen. It also has a "making of" feature which is fun too. I love singing along to this CD. Gwen Stefani has such a great voice and such a unique sense of style it's hard not to like her. I recommend this CD to grieving No Doubt lovers. And I'm sorry if I wasn't helpful. I don't really care that much; I just want you to buy a good CD.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I know my No Doubt.
    I have been a fan of No Doubt for over 10 years - This album, though not NEARLY close to thweir best - is great...if you like dancehall reggae and club music.If you are an old school no doubt fan (Beacon street, self titled, etc...) it might take some getting used to.Definately less depressing than Return of Saturn, not as punky as Tragic Kingdom, nothing close to Beacon Street or the self-titled album....

    Editorial Review

    Fuelled by the ska of Prince Buster ("Madness"), and inspired by the insanity of British music, right from the start Madness were a quintessentially English band. Two-tone more by association than fact, they came to the fore at the same time as the Specials, with a ska beat, a pop heart, and a lunatic smile (who else would update "Swan Lake" in such an unorthodox way?). While the title track lives on beyond them, there were plenty of other gems here, including "Night Boat to Cairo" and "My Girl." The Nutty Sound was infectious as measles, but a lot more fun.

    5-0 out of 5 stars They went..................one step beyond!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hey you!!!!!!!!!, lately Madness have come to my mind due to young advertisers for alcoholic beverages that are currently trying to introduce good taste in music to the depressing likes youth have in this days in Mexico (or maybe this advertisersare snob and try to impress ignorant fools i dont know), one of the first memories i have in music in my life is definitelly with Madness, actually i think it was the first one, before Beatles, before Zep, before Presley before Kiss or any other artist. I should have been like seven or eight years old when i liked to watch the Madness videos that were transmited saturday morning between cartoons, before all that space were filled with advertising as today, i liked that band when i was a child and i love them today cuts like "just another day" , "nigth boat to Cairo", "Michael Caine" ,"my girl" and of course "one step beyond"are timeless classics , band such as The Mighty Mighty Bostons and many others cant deny Madness influence they were plenty funny and genious, One Step Beyond is the debut album actually neither themselves were capable to achieve a bigger sucess after this one but the roots of ska punk are there untill the end of time.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing disappointing here..
    I remember first listening to this and loving every single second of it. I just listened to it about 10 minutes ago and loved every single second of it even harder.
    5-0 out of 5 stars One Step Beyond Rules!
    Buy this CD at any price. You will not regret it. It's melodic, fun, and timeless. One Step Beyond is their best. I don't think they ever repeated the magic that is on this CD, but their second release "Absolutely" album is very good as well, and should not be overlooked. I think I may even like it more than The Specials first effort. Is that blasphemy? ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Leave it to a British band to combine Latin rhythms, Jamaican mento, and ska beats, all dressed in retro zoot suits. The group is fronted by Cuban vocalist Ben Billy and London-born singer Nathan "Natty Bo" Lerner, with Jamaican trumpeter Eddie "Tan Tan" Thornton, Japanese saxophonist Megumi Mesaku, and Havana bassist Ray Crespo. For the most part, the music is a surprising melange ofBeny More-type vocals and upbeat ska rhythms made famous by The Skatalites, as evidenced by the snappy instrumental "Jezebel," the hypnotizing mid-tempo "Soy Campesino," and the humoroustitle track. Also included are the Colombian Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Ay Caramba " is Good!
    While traveling from Marrakech to Agadir my wife had the Moroccan radio station on, we noticed that the song playing was in English with a Latin beat, after the song was over the DJ announced it as "SKA CUBANO", what impressed me was that the singer sounded like the late Cuban singer Beny More! Later that night while staying in the Agadir Beach Club we heard the song again. We approach the DJ and he informed us that it was a recording from an English man and a Cuban singer who called themselves the SKA CUBANO. I was amazed when I heard the remaining songs it was fascinating. We danced all night to the music, and all the people seem to like the sound. Cumbia, Jamaican Ska, Jazz, and Cuban music altogether sounded great. My favorites are Soy Campesino, Tabu, and Istanbul. All the songs are very good and the back up band is outrageously good. Buy it and experience the excellent combination of this CD. My Mediterranean girl insisted that I write a review.Check it out on the web-site and listen to the songs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An exciting blend of Caribbean musical cultures
    Ay Caramba! is the musical creation of a UK/Cuba collaboration called Ska Cubano, which blends the bouncy ska beat that once took Jamaica by storm in the 1960s with Cuban cultural music. The result is an album with "hand-clapping" songs, rousing rhythm, and a diverse mixture of lively styles. An exciting blend of Caribbean musical cultures, Ay Caramba! is not to be missed. Tracks include Soy Campesino (3:42); Tabu (3:32); Oye Company Juan (3:35); No Me Desesperes (3:35); Big Bamboo (2:59); Tungarara (3:50); Cachita (4:31); Istanbul Not Constantinople (2:34); Marianao (3:51); Chispa tren (3:22); Jezebel (3:20); Bobine (4:56); Cumbia en Do Menor (4:41); and the title piece, Ay Caramba! (3:02).
    5-0 out of 5 stars A musical style that should have been
    The fact that the label this artist records on is associated with Putumayo is what initially drew me to it. One listen to the samples and I knew I had to add this to my collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Unique
    You will not find another band like Slightly Stoopid. You can put them in the same category as bands like 311 and Sublime, but they have a style all their own. And as any person with a good taste in music will tell you, their style is impossible to hate. I've played this CD for a person who ONLY listens to country and she loves it. It's a brilliant mix of ska, reggae, and punk. I also highly recommend their newer CD Closer To The Sun. Get this CD if you want your summer to have the perfect soundtrack.

    4-0 out of 5 stars good reggea surfers band
    its a really good ,band that remind me of sublime, BUT WHY THE SONG KILL ME DEEP INSIDE IS SO MUCH BETTER ALIVE ,THAN THE ONE OF THE ALBUM

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything You Need
    Slightly Stoopid is one of my favorite bands, and their album, Everything you Need is definatley my favorite album.It is an upbeat mix of reggae and punk. This CD is fresh, the band plays more reggae and less punk now but they hold true to their punk roots. Their previous CD was an acoustic only, which was a nice change from the usual loud instruments and rock star attitude. One of their songs is repeated on their acoustic CD and on Everything you Need. The song, Wiseman is very different when listened to plugged and unplugged. With the different instrumental accompaniments, the singer, Miles Doughty's, voice is really showcased well. It is hard to describe his voice, though it is very unique. It has a calming effect. I have personally seen them live and they put on a spectacular show. When you listen to the lyrics, you think all they talk about are drugs and having a good time. But if you listen closer, the lyrics are about more than just that. They talk about brotherhood and love from a different angle. Their fun reggae rhythm and rhymes mixed with their upbeat punk style and imagery make them an interesting band to listen to. I cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for the band. As I said before, I have seen them live and I will not miss them if they come through town again. The best way I can describe the band is 311 sound of music with more of Sublime's lyrics, and the Rancids hair. My second favorite album is their newest one it is on the top of my shopping list. ...

    This band is the fourth and in my opinion best project tomas kalnoky has been involved with. This album is one of the only albums i can listen to in its entirety and not skip a track. i know the lyrics to every song and some of the beats in a way. its a great album.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST OWN SKA ALBUM
    I've had this CD for 3 years now and I never get sick of it. I've seen Streetlight Manifesto in concert twice and they're even better live then on CD. I can't get over this awesome CD. If you think this CD is great then also check out and try to find a band called Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution. It was a side project Tomas did before he formed SM. They even did the song "Here's to Life". Also check out the re-release of Keasbey Nights the SM version. It's the same album as the Catch 22 release but it's done by SM and sounds a LOT better and some songs have extra lyrics to them.

    These guys are amazing musicians; perfect together - a modern Simon and Garfunkel.This album is pretty good on it's own, basically the best modern rock out there, if you'll call it that.It's hard to call it anything because these guys are totally unique; it's a sound I've been lookin for but haven't found in other artists.Even better are there next two albums, and more diverse.

    Editorial Review

    Toots Hibbert is often compared to Otis Redding, and since Hibbert was greatly influenced by classic American R&B as well as the music of his own Baptist church, that comparison is certainly apt. But while he owes a debt to the intense, high-octane vocal approach of Redding, there is also a great deal of similarity between Toots and the great James Brown. In many ways and at roughly the same time, Hibbert did for Jamaican soul what Brown did for its American cousin--he made it funky and Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Collection
    While this is a very good collection, the double CD "Time Tough" includes all the tracks here, but does a better job of covering the whole Toots spectrum, and the sound quality is quite a bit better. So while I agree with the positive reviews here, you get a lot more bang for the buck with "Time Tough". And TT gives you a lot more of his latter work, when love and spirituality infused his work and raised reggae to a higher plane. Go on and spend the extra $10, you won't be sorry (like I was when I bought this then still had to go out and buy "Time Tough" to get a sampling of ALL the Toots and the Maytals I came to love through buying most of his LPs in the 70's and 80's.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Toots & the Maytals Rule!
    I was lucky enough to see both Bob Marley & the Wailers and Toots & the Maytals on the same double bill at the Beacon Theater in NYC back in the '70's. Until then I had heard neither. While Bob Marley was phenomenal. He did more with simply folding his arms than most rockers do flailing all around the stage & smashing guitars. But the true revelation was Toots & the Maytals. They didn't stop until they rocked the house. Listening to this "Best of" collection brings that night home to me. If you've never experienced Toots & the Maytals, buy this collection, and give it a listen. You won't stop dancing and swaying. I promise.
