Toots is one of the true architects of reggae – so much so that “Do the Reggae,” a 1968 single by Toots and his group, the Maytals, is credited with giving the genre its name. Classic songs written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals have been covered by the likes of the Clash and the Specials, and the group was featured in reggae’s greatest breakthrough event – “The Harder They Come,” the 1972 film that became an international sensation. The all-star guests on TRUE LOVE range from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish’s Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music’s greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice – drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight.

    Pressure Drop was the first song I played on repeat from “The Harder They Come” Soundtrack. From Funky Kingston to Toots In Memphis, I’ve always listened. It would be a dream to match the voice I’ve heard on every mixtape.

    Toots is one of the original grand-daddies of roots, rock, reggae music. In fact, he was one of the first people to use the term “reggae”, It would be awesome to see this living legend live in Portland at a great venue like Revolution Hall.

    He’s my daughters favorite! She’s love to see him!

    You know, I once went to a show at the old La Luna here in Portland. Toots and the Maytals opened for Culture.
    Toots came out and did an unbelievable 3 hour opening set, just totally blew everyone away. It’s still one of my favorite shows.
    AND 8/2 is my BIRTHDAY!!!

  40. Julie D July 27, 2019 at 1:23 pm #

    This Toots and the Maytals concert at Revolution Hall is bound to be unbelievable!
