About this item

From The Roots is the fourth studio album by one of the best-known ska and rocksteady vocal groups, The Maytals. The group was founded in 1962 by Toots Hibbert, Henry “Raleigh” Gordon, and Nathaniel “Jerry” Mathias. They helped popularise reggae music during the Sixties and were even credited in the etymology of the word “Reggae” in the Oxford English Dictionary, as a result of being the first to use the word “Reggae” in their 1968 single “Do They Reggay”. The album From The Roots was recorded by Leslie Kong and features some of The Maytals' most explosive tunes. Fun fact, the album was already recorded in 1970, but wasn't released until three years later, after signing to Island Records in 1973.
