Toots and the Maytals
Reggae legends Toots and The Maytals are happy to announce the release of the band's latest record Flip & Twist, released digitally last week and in stores May 18. For a taste of what the full album holds, the band is offering a FREE MP3 download of the song "Perfect Lover" available for download HERE.

One of reggae's founding fathers, Toots Hibbert has been one of the leading figures for over four decades. Rising to prominence in the '60s alongside greats like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, Toots' soulful voice has earned him comparisons to Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and Wilson Pickett making him one of the most respected and versatile artists in these genres. And on Flip & Twist, Toots delves into his soul and R&B influences, creating a record that's as much Kingston, Jamaica as it is 1960s Detroit. The album's opener "Almighty Way," is a modern day gospel-soul classic. "Fool For You" finds Toots at his most vulnerable, creating a soulful ballad a la The Four Tops. Toots also tackles Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground," turning the song into a contemporary reggae classic. And on "Jungle" and "Maybe Yow" Toots delves into dance music, building catchy melodies catchy hip-hop beats.
