Description

After The Maytals signed a contract with Island Records in 1973, they recorded their fourth album, "From the Roots". They had left their early ska phase behind and surrendered to the slower sounds more commonly used in the mid-1970s.

In terms of content, the Maytals' lyrics are primarily concerned with love and striving for it, which is easy to understand in songs like "Koo Koo", "Got To Feel" and "Pee Pee Cluck Cluck". The recording quality is excellent for the time and some of their most explosive Maytals tracks can be found on this record.
