Peter Tosh Live at the Jamaican Music Fest 1982 [LIVE] [2002]

Peter Tosh's performance at the Jamaica World Music Festival in the Fall of 1982 is one of his finest performances, perhaps even surpassing his legendary show on "Complete Captured Live" recorded a year later at the Greek Theater in L.A. during the "Mama Africa" tour. Each song is astounding, but the thick, strong, slower rendition of "Coming In Hot" and the the rendition of "Get Up, Stand Up" clearly stand above the rest.

Perhaps most memorable about this show, however, were Tosh's moving speaches to the crowd, showing his integrity, strength, religiosity, and Humanity unlike some regular preacher, speaking about ganja, reincarnation, injustice, his own strengths, and his place alongside the common, oppressed citizens of the World. Truly, Peter's way with words earned him a special place in the pages of musical, sociopolitical, and spiritual history. Both speeches contain an instrumental backing mixed in by Karl Pitterson before the album's release in 2002. In closing, this was a concert for the ages, and cannot afford to be missed by any Tosh fan, reggae fan, or well-rounded music fan. I can guarentee you will not be disappointed.
