Notes

The music world lost a true pioneer in September 2020 with the passing of Toots Hibbert. His influence on reggae cannot be understated; he was not only a key figure in the development of the genre, he was also among the first to utilize the word itself in a song title which lead to the popularization of the genre.

Funky Kingston features “Pressure Drop”, named by Rolling Stone as one of the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. This international hit influenced (and was covered by) The Clash, The Specials, The Selecter and more.
