If Sean Paul is all you know about reggae, tune into the sounds of Kingston circa 1973. Toots Hibbert is a man who can give soul to a John Denver song, so imagine what happens when he channels Otis Redding at his most love-tortured. Funky Kingston also launched the unbelievably great "Pressure Drop," later covered by the Clash.
