HI, I have a copy of this release, but its on island and says it was released in 1973 and not 1975. Does anyone have any background information on this release and if there is another released that is not uploaded don discogs yet.

Toots and the Maytals were always a little rough around the edges until Chris Blackwell's polished them up for this album. On the original, other than the title track, it's all a little too polished, and yet again let down by weak material.

what to say? roots reggae. the maytals : the best original reggae band....toots , the singer is sometimes too much roaring and his roars seem a little false; but otherwise the perfect jamaican sound...
band: A
singer: B
