Toots & the Maytals: Lyceum, London

Karl Dallas, Melody Maker, 27 March 1976

GOD, I JUST can't take it any more! Where is all this incredible music coming from? It's getting more than flesh and blood can stand, as people like Harley, Emmylou, Springsteen, Scott-Heron and seemingly every other brilliant musician in the world makes his/her way to these shores to create the most exciting musical scene I can remember since the heyday of the Sixties. And now, Toots.
