peter tosh 1978 - 1987
tosh's creative muse was always present during these years, even if he was misunderstood as a superstar.
this 6cd box includes tracks & alternate versions from the albums ‘bush doctor’, ‘mystic man’, ‘mama africa’ & ‘no nuclear war’ whilst disc 6 is a previously unreleased bbc concert broadcast live from the dominion theatre in 1983. the music here marks reggae history with the sheer audacity of tosh's restlessness. a much more diffident man than his former partners bunny wailer & bob marley, tosh let it all come through in the music. his charisma was not in interviews, but in performances both live & recorded. his columbia albums were all raw exercises in deep dread thinking & execution, while his emi period was one of experimentation & sonic inquiry.
