OLDIES SUNDAY: @TootsMaytals – Do The Reggay (1968)


Today’s Oldies Sunday is dedicated to the late Frederick “Toots” Hibbert. A man who knew a thing or few about longevity, Toots Hibbert is the originator of the genre we know as “Reggae“. A man who inspired generations, created hits, and looked good doing it all, the world was definitely rocked when he made his transition on September 11. As founder and member of The Maytals, today we highlight the selection, “Do The Reggay“.

Produced by Leslie Kong and released through the Beverley’s Records in 1968, “Do The Reggay” was made to accompany a popular dance of the same name. While the song didn’t feature complex lyrics, it provided fun sounds that prompted listeners to get into a groove. Through the release of the single, Toots Hibbert is named as a pioneer of Reggae music as “Do The Reggay” marked a shift from the Ska and Rocksteady eras of music into a new genre of more upbeat sounds, and generations of new artists.

Today, regardless of anything, we just want you to enjoy the music, and remember one of the greatest artists to ever emerge from Jamaica. Rest in Peace Toots Hibbert, and thank you for the classics!

.@TootsMaytals’ “Pressure Drop” Featured In New @CoorsLight Commercial!


When you’ve had a long day on the road or at work, there’s nothing better than coming home to relax. We have many ways to relax, we fall asleep immediately on the couch or bed, we take a bath or shower, or we get some wine or beer. In Beer giant Coors’ latest Commercial for their Light Beer, one woman not only cracks a can of Beer to relax, but she takes off her Bra! While many women can relate to letting the Tatas be free, we recognized the Commercial’s soundtrack, “Pressure Drop” by the legendary Toots & The Maytals! Released in 1969, this was produced by Leslie Kong and featured on the Band’s “Monkey Man” (1970) and “From The Roots” (1973) albums. The song helped Toots & The Maytals gain International recognition as it was featured in the classic Film, “The Harder They Come” (which was recently released on Blu-ray).

A song about revenge, but in the form of Karma, “Pressure Drop” became one of Toots & The Maytals’ most memorable singles, and was included in Rolling Stone’s500 Greatest Songs Of All Time” list at #453. It was also featured in the soundtrack for “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas“. Relax and check out the Commercial below, and share with a friend.
