When it comes to old-school roots reggae, few groups were as influential as The Maytals. Adding Frederick“Toots” Hibbert’s name to the front of their billing later in the 1970s, in the earliest days they were moreegalitarian as they built their sound and legend.From The Roots, originally released on Trojan Records in 1970 (alongside another full-length that sameyear, Monkey Man), was a transitional record for the group. Leaving behind their early ska days – much likeThe Wailers and other peers – they had yet to settle into the slower tempos that blew in like ganja smoke bythe mid-‘70s. As a result, music here generally gallops, and vocals fall in line.As heard on gems like “Koo Koo,” “Got To Feel,” and “Pee Pee Cluck Cluck,” the Maytals’ lyrics tend mostlytowards love and the pursuit thereof. The group, throughout its career, was also deeply spiritual and muchof this was expressed through song – a great case in point here is “Thy Kingdom Come,” essentially achurch hymn set to reggae music.And the album concludes with an interesting cover of the Lennon/McCartney hippie chestnut, “Give PeaceA Chance,” which is much faster than the original and quite groovy overall.The Maytals are generally overlooked in the pantheon of reggae giants, but this is unjust. Do your part inrecognizing their legendary status by digging into this filling meal of classic Jamaican fare.
