The Maytals were formed in the early 1960s and were key figures in popularizing reggae music.
Frontman Toots Hibbert, who died in 2020, was considered a reggae pioneer on par with Bob Marley. His soulful vocal style was compared to Otis Redding, and led him to be named by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Singers.
After Hibbert's death, the Maytals indicated that they would continue as a working group.

Their 1968 single "Do the Reggay" was the first song to use the word "reggae", coining the name of the genre and introducing it to a global audience.
The Oxford English Dictionary credits Toots and the Maytals in the etymology of the word "Reggae".
According to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell "The Maytals were unlike anything else ... sensational, raw and dynamic."

This French pressing of The Maytals 1981 album Knock Out! is in very good condition. The vinyl looks excellent, sleeve has some wear and stickers but overall looks fine.
