Toots & The Maytals – “Louie Louie”

Year: 1972

Album: Funky Kingston

A reggae remix of Richard Berry’s classic frat standard made famous by The Kingsmen and stolen from inspired by René Touzet’s “El Loco Cha Cha Cha”. Funky Kingston is also an essential reggae record for those who want to move beyond Bob Marley.
