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.

Back In Black would be cooler.

The lyrics and music of ‘Louie Louie’ describes the history of its confusing lyrics and how to play it.

Toots & the Maytals recorded the best version. A video of it is available on YouTube, including their excellent reggae rendition of John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads.
