Toots and the Maytals' Funky Kingston is a brilliant reggae album and suitable for both beginners as for experienced listeners. The album was released twice--in this configuration, and again with a revised track list after the international success of the "Harder They Come" film and soundtrack. Rolling Stone included the LP on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. 

The album consists of both original songs written by Frederick "Toots" Hibbert and covers of songs by Ike Turner, Shep and the Limelites, and Richard Berry. It's an uplifting album with some sparkling reggae, soulful moments and rhythm and blues.
