Album Review

Toots & the Maytals' edition of 20th Century Masters is a very good summation of the group's greatest songs and therefore, their very importance. This doesn't have every great song they've ever done, and is not as comprehensive as other overviews assembled, but as a budget-line collection, it's first-rate, containing nearly everything a casual fan could want, including "Funky Kingston," "54-46 Was My Number," "Pressure Drop," and "Monkey Man."

Toots- The right songs , but the wrong versions.

While Toots Hibbert certainly deserves to be labelled a 20th Century Master, he also deserves to have better quality versions of his classic songs on his Millenium Collection. Shame on Island/Def Jam for not getting hold of his best tapes for this compilation. The songs are right. Funky Kingston, 54-46, Pressure Drop, Sweet & Dandy should all be included in any Toots collection, but other CD's (on iTunes) have much better engineered versions of these same songs, which clearly sound much better. Go to his "Essentials" CD if you want to get the good stuff!

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