As the US version shares so few songs with the original, they should be treated as two independent albums. Like the original, the US version is fairly polished, but the inclusion of "Time Tough", "Love is Gonna Get Me Down", "Country Road" and yet another appearance of the all time classic "Pressure Drop" make the US version the far stronger album, but still, this is a pretty watered down version of Reggae.

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

This is one of my favourite Roots/Reggae albums and certainly one of Toot's very best. In the 70's he could do wrong. More or less a must-have for any Reggae fan that doesn't already own it.

To whomever posted the comment, I've found a few sources stating that this particular U.S. issue of the record did, in fact, come out in 1975 on Mango. The original LP was released in 1972 in Jamaica/the UK on Dragon Records.

when I got Funky Kingston it had the song Funky Kingston on both sides. One was printed on the label and correct and the other was where the song Country Roads should have been. Exact same song. Both sides. Anyone else have this problem? It's the Island Records printed in the USA and the Cat# matches the 1975 release.
