“Redemption Song” by Toots and the Maytals

11 06 2013

If I’m going to write about Toots and the Maytals, I have to include my favourite song of theirs, “Redemption Song”, recorded in the early 1970s. This isn’t a particularly good YouTube recording of it, but I picked this because it’s the version without the backing horns, which is the one that I prefer.

The version with horns is pretty good too, and this YouTube recording is a little clearer:

I once wrote somewhere that I want to live a long time so that I can listen to this song as often as possible.
