Excellent and uplifting as always. No doubt Toots and the Maytals would approve.

Always loved Toots song. Also a big fan of Chronixx but I must admit I'm not as impressed as I hoped to be. It doesn't give me nearly the good vibes the original does. Thanks for sharing though. It was worth watching.

OUCH, had to stop before 40 seconds !!!! Different strokes for different folks, i reckon.
Boring generic stuff, musically also very unhappening (those guys at Beverley's packed some serious power, not this here !).
Still unable to understand what all this hype about Chronixx is. Frankly, there are more interesting vocalists in JA these days.
A weak version but it's probably too risky to follow in The Maytals' footsteps. There will always be Marley, Marley and Marley again, generation after generation, still...
Chronixx is just lucky Toots just wasn't invited to play the same tune.

Yew TruthTown, I saw Toots 3 weeks ago in Toulouse and he was far more impressive.

Thanks for reminding us about that Barrington cover, wicked ! He had such a string of killer duets on Time 1 around '96.

To hijack the thread a bit; duets were a big thing there for a couple of years. Often humorous where the dj answered back to the singer. I really enjoyed that era

To be fair to Chtonixx, he probably just covered one of his favorite tracks for a one off performance. It doesn't stand up to the original but it's not a bad effort

Very few singers could sing a Toots tune and hope to do decent job. He's a giant and on stage he can deliver pure soul and energy for 2+ hours without showing any effort. I was in the crowd once at his show at Rototom Sunsplash and next to me Stephen Marley watched the whole set in admiration. Big Up Toots!
