Living reggae heroes Toots and the Maytals unveiled their first ever acoustic album in the summer of 2012, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Jamaican Independence Day.
Grammy® award-winning Toots Hibbert was the first to use the word 'reggae' on tape in his 1968 classic, "Do The Reggay", and over the last six decades has defined and redefined the sound. With his acoustic album release Unplugged on Strawberry Hill, the legend continues.
Toots lures you in to his performances, whether totally amplified or, on this recording, acoustic and all natural. Heartfelt and soulful, every minute of these recording is straight from the heart. It showcases his soul side, and with his raw vocals sound when he was in his 20s.
The album was recorded at sunset with the Blue Mountains providing the stunning backdrop. The gorgeous, sun-kissed acoustic session depicts a soulful and intimate side to revered classics like "Funky Kingston", "Pressure Drop" and "54-46". The loose rhythms and Toots' trademark vocal make Unplugged on Strawberry Hill the perfect soundtrack for summer.
