ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The "love" he's professing is the universal love for all mankind, born from the blessings Jah provide. He's already blessed Junior with excellent reggae genetics, being that he's the son of reggae legend Toots Hibbert, who you may know best from Toots and the Maytals...

As for me, myself, I and I, there's no doubt to me that Junior's heritage more than makes up for his distance from Jamaica when you listen to him croon his tune. "Physically Spiritually" is classic rasta roots reggae at its finest, singing about how all of mankind shares a common brotherhood. "We have got to be strong like the mountains/and blow like the breeze/keep a steadfast meditation/and keep your mind at ease/forget about when they said nothing good would ever happen." Preach on dread. "Puss and Dog" is a more jamming affair, one which for reasons I can't fathom reminds me of No Doubt - although there can be no doubt Toots is teaching...

Toots is full of lessons and love throughout the 14 tracks of this album. Some songs are incredibly self-explanatory before listening - you don't have to ponder what "If Africa Is Not Free" about for long. The same goes for the spiritual cry of "Call On Jah," the heritage pride of "Ethiopian From Birth" or the wisdom manifested on "Seek the Truth" featuring Sol Atash.

With a strong musical backing of production from Fabian Cooke, Aston Barrett and Toots' own brother Hopeton Hibbert, "A Little Bit of Love" rises above like a puff of friendly herbal smoke drifting in the island breeze. Toots professes in his bio that moving to the United States changed him into an entirely different person, but it seems to me after hearing his CD that Toots evolved as he needed to while not losing his reggae roots one bit."

"Bambu Station from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands headlined the show. Another big name who played yesterday's event is Junior Toots, whose father, Toots Hibbert, is the frontman for the seminal Jamaican reggae band Toots and the Maytals. "I'm lovin' it," Junior Toots said backstage after his performance. "I've never been to Hawaii, so I wanted to come out to see what this place is like and spread the message of love. It's been a great experience, so far, and the Hawaiian people are great." Singer Irae Divine made her second appearance at the event, and describes it as "a blessing." Puna musician Jack Miller made a pilgrimage to Jamaica in the 1970s and played with numerous reggae stars including Sly & Robbie, The Mighty Diamonds and members of Third World and The Wailers. "That they can bring this quality of musicians for a free show, that's just amazing," he said. "These are some of the top touring reggae bands that are out there right now. "
