Sit Down to Get Up

Back to a good time number this Friday and let’s hear some reggae from Toots and the Maytals. At the moment this is the only song that I can think of that, although it is about sitting down, it just makes me want to get up. This youtube clip has been the best quality version of the song that so far I have been able to find, so I hope it plays alright for you.

Toots, or Frederick Hibbert, and the Maytals started out in the early 60’s in Jamaica, at first playing Ska and then moving into Reggae. They are truly worth a further listen. You might have already heard another of their songs, Pressure Drop,  that featured on the soundtrack to the film “The Harder They Come”.
