Even more than Bob Marley, perennial roots shit-disturber Peter Tosh was reggae's man of the people, willing to call out the system in his own particular language, whatever the cost. It ultimately got him killed, but it made for some great music.
Captured live in 1978 at the prestigious One Love concert, Tosh's righteous anger is in full flight, even with Jamaica's rulers sitting three feet away from the stage. Where Marley used the show to bring battling leaders Edward Seaga and Michael Manley together, Tosh instead shouts down the establishment, storming through hits like Stepping Razor, 400 Years, Equal Rights and Burial while cursing out both leaders, threatening Lucifer and demanding the legalization of marijuana.
Probably not the feel-good set that the concert organizers were hoping for, but a riveting roots document nonetheless. MG
