Title: Toots Hibbert RIP
Post by: Robin_Wick on September 12, 2020, 07:57:54 AM
Such sad news...  :'(

Where to begin with his catalogue? Supplied more Mod and skinhead dancefloor cuts than most, just an inexhaustible supply of gold.

Sad news indeed, Robin, I'd heard he was in a critical condition so can't say I'm surprised by the tragic outcome.

Not easy to choose a Maytals' song but I'm going to play it safe: "Monkey Man" or "54-46 was my Number", the records that cemented their legend really. And of course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7siS_40gcX0

Saw this earlier and was saddened but not shocked as I knew he was seriously ill. A ska and reggae legend, so many great tunes that filled dancefloors for decades. RIP

Sad news indeed.  As well as the others already mentioned, I've always liked these tracks:
