“Beginning with the tune “I’ll Never Grow Old”, this record quickly established a bright jumping pattern of success followed by “Just Got To Be”, these captured the heart of listeners and secured a position on the public list of favourite singers. The Maytals and their styling changed the entire course of the recording business, when they recorded “I’ll Never Grow Old”. This set off strings of imitations that still persist, because groups are still trying to capture the original sound. Imitation may very well be the most sincere form of flattery, but it is no fair substitute for talent. The Maytals are a versatile group, whose individual members are all members of a church choir. These youngsters are known in private life as – Federick Hibbert, the lead singer age 19, Henry Gordon age 27, and Nathaniel McCarthy age 25, and they are all Jamaicans.
On this album you’ll find (16) Hit Tunes all sung by The Maytals with a great deal of compelling background music supplied by the Ska Talites. So while you play this collection dance to all lively tunes and enjoy it.”
