    Toots and the Maytals, originally called The Maytals, are a Jamaican musical group and one of the best known ska and rocksteady vocal groups. The Maytals were formed in the early 1960s and were key figures in popularizing reggae music.

    I think this is a pretty funny name. What are your favorite songs from this group?

    My favourite Maytals song is "Fifty four forty six." The song relates the true experience of Toots Hibbert, the leader of the Maytals when he was incarcerated for smoking Marijuana during the early days of his singing career. The number 5456 was the number thats was appointed to him during his term in jail.
