Tosh, Peter

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Arise Black Man
New - LP - 43002
New, Unplayed And Out Of Print 2003 2LP 180gm Gatefold Compilation Of Singles From The Early 70's. First Time On LP. “Before Officially Breaking Away From The Wailers And Beginning His Solo Career, Peter Tosh Recorded A Number Of Singles Under His Own Name With The Legendary Producer Bunny Lee. Those Recordings Play A Central Part In This Generous 25-Track Compilation, Which Also Includes Material From Wailers Sessions Produced By Lee "Scratch" Perry And Leslie Kong, And Some Of Tosh's Solo Work With Joe Gibbs. Most Of The Best Tracks Here Will Be Familiar To Tosh And Wailers Fans -- "Maga Dog," "Brand New Second Hand," And "Them A Fe Get A Beating" Have All Appeared On Numerous Collections. But There Are Some Very Worthwhile Obscurities On This Program As Well, Including A Gorgeous Rock Steady Paean To Haile Selassie Entitled "Rightful Ruler" (On Which Tosh Shares The Mic With U Roy), Tosh's Dour "Downpressor," And A Charming Cover Version Of Jimmy Witherspoon's R&B Hit "Ain't Nobody's Business." Curiosities Include The Four Alternate Versions Of "Maga Dog" (Some Of Them Recorded By Other Artists) And A Smattering Of Instrumentals Featuring Tosh On Organ -- Sometimes Competently ("Ambitious Beggar," "Memphis") And Sometimes Not ("The Crimson Pirate," "Pepper Seed"). Recommended.” Rick Anderson, AMG. more
Bush Doctor
New - LP - COC 39109
Sealed 1978 Original With Custom Sticker On Shrink. First Copy We Have Ever Seen! "As The Debut Album On The Rolling Stone Label In 1978, Bush Doctor Benefited Immensely From The Involvement Of Jagger And Richards, As Well As The Publicity Inherent In The High-Profile Nature Of The Release. Thankfully, Tosh Was Up To The Challenge, And Although There Are Moments That Are Less Roots Than Anything He Had Previously Recorded, Bush Doctor Is No Slick Sellout. It's Bolstered By His Incredible Word Sound & Power Band Featuring The Legendary Sly & Robbie Rhythm Section Along With Lead Guitarists Mikey "Mao" Chung And Donald Kinsey (Fresh From His Stint With Marley). Although The Cover Of The Temptations' "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back" Single Featuring Jagger's Duet Withtosh Seemed Like An Obvious Ploy At Crossover Radio Play, The Rest Is More Roots Conscious, And Only Slightly Less Compelling Than Some Of Ex-Bandmate Bob Marley's Work. The Horns On "Moses -- The Prophet" Seem Like Sweetening, But The Title Track, "I'm The Toughest," "Stand Firm," And A Remake Of An Old Wailers' Track "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beatin," Complete With I-Threes-Style Backing Vocals, Are Some Oftosh's Best Songs. Only The Original Album's Closing Track, An Ambitious But Overwrought Retelling Of Genesis With Handel's "Messiah," Is A Major Misstep. Yet Even Here, Tosh Is Pushing Boundaries, Adding Bird And Thunder Sound Effects To His Soft Guitar Strumming Accompaniment. It's Interesting But Few Will Want To Hear It More Than Once." - Hal Horowitz, AMG more

Sealed 80's Issue (Bar Code On Back). “Equal Rights Remains Among The Handful Of Best, And Most Influential, Reggae Albums Ever Recorded.

Whether It Is Preaching About The Unity Of The African Diaspora ("African"), Protesting Conditions In South Africa ("Apartheid"), Or Giving A More General Call To Arms ("Get Up, Stand Up"), Equal Rights Is A Political Album.” AMG. more

Legalize It
Used - LP - PC 34253
1976 2nd Press. An All-Time Classic. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “After Years Of Being Overshadowed By Bob Marley, Peter Tosh Left The Wailers To Pursue A Solo Career. Released In 1976, Legalize It Is A Bold Statement That Peter Tosh Had Arrived And Was A Creative Force In His Own Right. Although He Explores Some Issues Of Spirituality, This Is Tosh's Most Lightweight Album In The Sense That It Is His Least Political. This Is Not Meant As A Criticism -- In Fact, Tosh's Playfulness And Joy ("Ketchy Shuby") Only Add To The Album's Charm. He Does Make Political Statements (The Title Track Celebrates And Promotes The Use Of Marijuana), But They Are Done With A Sense Of Humor And A Melodic Infectiousness That Belie His Sincere Concern For The Issues. Tosh Incorporates Many Instruments And Mixes Slower Ballads With Upbeat Grooving Tunes. The Album's Highlight Is "Why Must I Cry," A Multi-Layered Song (Co-Written With Bob Marley) That Conveys A Sense Of Personal Failure When Fighting An Uphill Battle, Whether It Be Against Injustices Of The World Or Within The Confines Of A Relationship. Legalize It Cemented Tosh's Position As A Giant In Reggae, And The Album Is One Of The Best Albums Of The Genre.” Vik Lyengar, AMG. more

Mama Africa
New - LP - SO 17095
Sealed 1983 Original. “Peter Tosh's Most "Accessible" Solo Album, Mama Africa Would Also Be His Best Seller Outside Jamaica, The Only One Of His Albums To Break Into The U.K. Top 50 And Even Push Into The Bottom Reaches Of The U.S. Chart. Toning Down The Rhetoric, Tosh Concentrated On The Music, Self-Producing An Album That Sounds Fantastic From Start To Finish. Of Course, He Had Help From A Boatload Of Friends, With Two Separate Aggregates Of Musicians Providing Backing; Carlton "Santa" Davis And Lebert "Gibby" Morrison Fuel One Grouping Across Most Of The Album, With Sly & Robbie Firing The Other. There's A Fabulous Horn Section, A Clutch Of Superb Backing Singers (Including The Tamlins, Who Accompany Tosh On Three Songs), And Some Superb Guitar Work From Donald Kinsey. The Album Itself Revisits The Past While Also Looking To The Future. The Updated Songs Are Particularly Creative, With The Wailers' "Stop That Train" Totally Revitalized Through An Incredible Mix Of Styles, Brilliantly Blending R&B, Nods To Motown, A Faux Slide Guitar, And A Steady Reggae Beat. Even More Astonishing Is Tosh's Stunning Take On "Johnny B. Goode," A U.K. Top 50 Hit That Boasts An Intricate Rhythm, Brass Accents, Sumptuous Keyboards, And Kinsey's Soaring Guitar On A Song That Builds And Builds Into An Absolute Crescendo Of Sound. The Title Track Is Even More Infectious, A Rocker With A Caribbean Flair And A Light Afro-Beat, As Tosh Muses Eloquently About His Beloved Continent. Every Track On The Album Is Just As Memorable In Its Own Way, As The Artist Combines Styles, Genres, Moods, And Atmospheres Across Songs Old And New. An Album Filled With Music That Remains Unforgettable.” Jo-Ann Greene, AMG. more
