Toots & the Maytals - True LoveToots Hibbert is an original and, as Little Richard would say, “an originator.” Hibbert was the first to mix r&b and gospel with reggae in the early ’60s. This all-star collection features a still-robust Toots singing his biggest hits in duets with rock gods (Eric Clapton on “Pressure Drop,” Jeff Beck on “54-46 That’s My Number”), third-wave ska bands (No Doubt on “Monkey Man”) and alt-rock stars (Ryan Adams on “Time Tough”). It’s an impressive tribute—and proof that Toots’ infectious brand of reggae’s still got soul.
