I was working on a pretty sweet project over the past four days, which meant I had to buckle down and put in quite a few late night hours. I usually listen to Slack Key Guitar, but it was putting me to sleep, so I switched it up and ended up with a stellar l’il classic reggae playlist.
I figured I’d share it, make a little mood board on a Monday, give my brain a little break, then go listen to it all again.
Basically, I could listen to Toots & The Maytals all day and night. Toots Hibbert’s voice reminds me of Otis Redding at times. Swoon. Throw in a few other classic Gems…oh man, queue the happy dance for my eardrums.
I saved the playlist over on youtube, so give it a listen anytime.
Here you go:
Reggae Got Soul – Toots & The Maytals
Put It On – Bob Marley & The Wailers
007 (Shanty Town) – Desmond Drucker
54-46 Was My Number – Toots & The Maytals
Cherry O Baby – Eric Donaldson
Take Me Home, Country Road – Toots & The Maytals
Bend Down Low – Bob Marley
Guava Jelly – Johnny Nash
Pull Up Selector – Tarrus Riley & Jimmy Riley
Funky Kingston – Toots & The Maytals
…pretty sure I’ll keep on adding more to this one.
Enjoy the jams.
