Format: Audio CD
I would choose this album over some of the dodgier Toots compilations, because it captures a period of creativity for the band. Even though some of the songs had become staples by this time, they are all consistent in their recording quality, unlike some compilations. This album kicks off with the gospel number 'Got to be there'. With the backing gospel chorus of "I feel the spirit..." you really get the feel for Toots's gospel beginnings. 'In the dark', the title track, is another soulful gospel tinged track, but from here on the album moves seamlessly into more familiar Toots numbers: 'Time Tough', 'Fever' and 'Take a Look in the Mirror' are all knockout tracks. Toots best moments come when he simply gives up on the lyrics and makes up a na-na-na bit with the melody ie: 'Revolution', and'54-46'. Toots is the man....

I first bought this album in 1973 and played it until it fell to bits! Original transcendental reggae from the incomparable Toots. If you don't hear this you are missing out on a truly joyous experience.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 July 2007
Format: Audio CD
This 1976 album is praise and worship music with lots of soul. My favorites include Got To Be There, the title track, Time Tough, the John Denver song Take Me Home Country Roads, 54-36 and Fever. In The Dark is very accomplished set that demonstrates the band's versatility and their musical prowess that earned them an almost mythical status in Jamaica. Reggae comes in many forms - whereas there is a strong rock influence in the music of Marley and Tosh, for example, the music of the Maytals is a seamless blend of reggae and soul. This album is also available as a double CD Funky Kingston/In the Dark with the band's other classic of the same year.

I bought in 1973 too, it's where reggae got soul. Listen to the organ player on Time Tough - that's skill

Many years ago,and had been looking for it at a sensible price for some time. 3 or 4 of the tracks on here are,in my humble opinion,amongst Toots and the boys best of all time. Why only 4 stars ? The copy I bought was advertised as used,but very good. In fact, there were a few scuffy type marks on the cd,although in fairness, it plays ok
