Essential Reggae

Bob Marley - politics + added funk = Toots and the Maytals. A must have for any reggae fan.

You may want to consider that option for more excellent music for only a slightly higher price.

If not they will sooner get addicted to the genre itself. In english all I'm trying to say is, SPREAD THE LOVE PEOPLE THIS ALBUM IS GREAT!!!!!!!

The Maytals were also the band that most clearly...
