Tomorrow, I depart for the Caribbean for two weeks, and to get in the spirit, I’d like to post one of the greatest songs ever to come out of Jamaica. By the unconquerable Toots Hibbert and his band the Maytals, this is “54-46 Was My Number.” (The number was Hibberts’ convict number after he was arrested for marijuana possession.) Dig it.
Toots & the Maytals, “54-45 Was My Number” (1968)
PS: Happy 100th post everybody.
