Toots & The Maytals: Get Up, Stand Up [1979]

from the classic Pass The Pipe

Reggae Sunsplash 2K7 continues (we seem to have heeded Davy's clarion call to add more reggae to the blogosphere. Cheers, Davy -- and happy birthday!)

This is an LP my dad had so I heard this a lot as a lad. (Cheers, Dad.)

bonus beats: the same song, vinyl-ripped from my dad's copy

Note that this is not a cover of the Marley/Tosh classic but an entirely different tune of Toots's own devising.

lead vocals: Toots Hibbert
background vocals: Jerry Mathias and Raleigh Gordon

Get on the morning train
For the evening train will be too late

Great song, and thanks for the whatever they're called.(Props?) Who knew you were listening that acutely?

I like the keyboards at the end.
