  1. Loved it when it came out and still love it. Of course, given my WV hillbilly roots, Toots’ cover of Country Roads from the Funky Kingston album is also a favorite.

  2. When I lived in Maine in the late 90’s / early 80’s. Reggae all the rage.
    That anthology was an important album.
    I was able to see a Screening w/ Jimmy Cliff.
    Marley / Tosh…amazing
