Toots Hibbert
Some of you may be familiar with this guy, I wasn't and despite having a few tracks on a compilation CD I'd never listened to him.

He was the guy who invented the term Reggae, so he's due something at least.

I started to pick up some stuff on Saturday night. My wife was listening to the Proms on the tele. I was up-stairs on the computer. I found a video of a concert and watching his performance of "Monkey Man" had me up and dancing........ well moving about. You put it on and eveybody moves. A real Lazarus moment for me though

Give the man a listen

Really sad that Toots has died. I was hoping to see him in January this year for the first time as he was booked to headline a festival here in NZ, but he had to cancel for health reasons. We said at the time that's probably our only chance to see him live gone...RIP Mr Hibbert, and thanks for all the great music.
A good introduction to his work if you havent' heard it is True Love, his album from 2004 that features duets of some of his favourite songs with the likes of Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Trey Anastasio, No Doubt, Ben Harper, Bonnie Raitt, Manu Chao, The Roots, Ryan Adams, Keith Richards, and The Skatalites.

Bungay - thanks. I'll certainly give that a dose of listening to. I've also found some tracks on a compilation CD that I've never got round to listening to

Hangs head in shame
