Toots & The Maytals: Toots In Memphis

Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 23 January 1989

REGGAE GOT SOUL was the title of a 1976 Toots & the Maytals album, and Frederick (Toots) Hibbert decided to re-emphasize the connection when he returned to the studio last year for his first album in six years: by going to Memphis to record an album of songs made famous by singers from that southern soul center.
