Toots & The Maytals Performing “Country Road”

Toots & The Maytals performing John Denver’s classic, Country Road:

Toots & The Maytals are a roots reggae band getting inspiration from Otis Redding to Joe Higgs. I saw them live in Montreal a long time ago. A great band. I think the guy is 100 years old and still touring – like B.B. King.

We Need More Roots Reggae

Peter Tosh is to be honored at some festival:

The festival will honor Tosh to mark the dreadlocked singer’s 60th birthday.
Tosh was the most outspoken member of the famed Wailers group in 1960s and went on to have a successful solo career with songs like “Equal Rights” and “Legalize It.” He was killed during a robbery at his Kingston home in 1987.

J-Walk recently posted news about Clement Dodd’s death, who:

was credited with launching the career of the reggae star Bob Marley and was a hugely influential figure in the development of Jamaican music.

I’d like to see more recognition of Joe Higgs. His Blackman Know Yourself album is a classic.
