Formed in the early 1960s, Toots and the Maytals are pivotal to the development of reggae and are even credited with naming the whole genre with their record, Do The Reggay.

Their initial success came in the early 1960s with a string of popular singles, but it was their first LP for Chris Blackwell, Funky Kingston, released in the early '70s, that many regarded as their best work. It includes solid sides like Pomp and Pride, a whacked-out restructuring of Richard Berry's; Louie, Louie, and the wonderful title track, Funky Kingston.
