5.0 out of 5 stars HUGELY ENJOYABLE September 28, 2004
By Coleen
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album does not have a bad track on it. Peter Tosh's greatest album is Equal Rights, but this is more accessible to new reggae fans or even new Tosh fans. It is a lot of fun because of the duet with Mick Jagger, which opens the album. The rest of the album is excellent, especially the song Bush Doctor, and the extra tracks are a fine addition. It also has the coolest Peter Tosh sleeve (along with Legalize It!) If you want to check out Tosh, this is an excellent place to start!!!

If you're a Tosh fan and you don't have this, what are you waiting for??

5.0 out of 5 stars the great peter`s classic in a new form July 16, 2003
By comega
Format:Audio CD
When peter tosh signed to rolling stones records he was well aware of its significance in the world of international music. The duet with Mick jager on You`ve gotta walk (dont look back)gave the album an instant hit. The album is a mixed material of old wailers music and new songs, backed by the fabulous rythm twins "Sly & Robbie".Maybe the most interesting song of this new packaging is the unrelesed version of "Lessons in my life", with a laid-back Tosh on vocals, the song was later released on his "No nuclear war" album. The dub mixes are interesting and "sly and Robbie" supremacy on the rythm section is quite solid and innovative. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Pick Myself Up ! April 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is an interesting mix of political protest, religious soul and love songs.

The most memorable song for me is `Moses- The Prophets'
Filled with the most incredible spiritual imagery, I can never forget the powerful words:

"Do you remember Moses
Do you remember Moses
Him no ded
Him no ded
I se Him no ded
De man depon earth still
De man a trod earth still
De man depon earth still
Watchin all de wicked, dem a gone."

"Creation" is another powerful spiritual hymn.

There is the "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back" , a fabulous duet with Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger. The plea to legalize marijuana in "Bush Doctor", and even love songs like `Soon Come' carry Tosh's tough edge.
Another inspiring poetic song is `Pick Myself Up'-one of the best self-help songs up there.

A definite must have in a complete reggae collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps his most personal album July 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
BUSH DOCTOR is arguably Peter Tosh's finest album and I believe his most personal. The behind the scenes events prior to and, in many ways, responsible for it's release are now legendary. The year was 1978 and Peter was to have a faithful meeting with The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards and Mick Jaggar at the historic "One Love Peace Concert" in Kingston, Jamaica in April of that year. Having such a concert in Jamaica was dangerous enough as the members of The Wailers in particular were held in much hatred and disgust by the government for their revolutionary causes.

The situation became even more tense, and for Peter dangerous, when he began making statements directed towards both Michael Marley whom Tosh called the "Crime Minister" and the leader of the Jamaican opposition "Edward Seaga" whom he called "See Hog Yah." Decrying the "shytstem" that had ruled the island for a long time, Tosh called for the immediate legalization of ganja and an end to the colonialism and it's injustices which kept the black man chained to a new kind of slavery. This speech almost cost Peter his life as five months later, as it was reported that he was dragged to a jail cell and beaten for 90 minutes and there left for dead.

This is one of the many reasons why he is idolized by countless millions of people around the world, he and The Wailers, never ran away from conflict and even more so embraced the idea. He not only talked about it, sang and wrote about it, but lived it daily. And Mick Jaggar and Keith Richards both respected that about him. Peter was the first artist signed to their new "Rolling Stones Records" label and hit the ground running with this phenomenal album. Although, the album did suffer initial as several hundred copies were recalled from the U.K.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album. September 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
My favorite two songs are "Don't Look Back," and "Lessons in my Life." I used to love "De Ha Fi Get a Beatin," until I discovered the earlier version on Arise Blackman Arise. I loved that version until I came across the original on The Complete Wailers 67-72 Vol. 9 "Freedom Time." That one has the original "Steppin Razor," and "Burial."

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing is Not Fitting Enough February 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Peter Tosh's "Bush Doctor," from 1978, kicks off with the amazing hit-single duet between Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and Tosh himself, the cover of the Temptations' "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back," having recently been signed to the Rolling Stones' own record label after his infamous post-One Love Peace Concert beating.

"Bush Doctor" finds Tosh with his brilliant trademark millitant and deeply spiritual stance, covering several old songs he had made with the Wailers years before such as "Dem Ha Fe Get a Beatin," "I'm the Toughest," and "Soon Come". Tosh also has several stellar original numbers like the hopeful "Pick Myself Up," the haunting semi-acoustic "Creation," and the pro-ganja title track reffering to his beating, "Bush Doctor," with Keith Richards on guitar. Richards also played guitar on the underrated, solemn hit, "Stand Firm".

The bonus tracks, though largely fantastic extended and remixed versions of the album's songs, (and a trippy instrumental rendition of "I'm the Toughest,") did contain one entirely original: the original, previously unreleased version Tosh's tale of betrayal by a friend, "Lesson In My Life," which was remade and released on Tosh's final album "No Nuclear War," in 1987, just days before his murder by a friend, in fact.

Bush Doctor is the point where Tosh fully secures his international stardom and notes that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music. This is one of the essentials for any Peter Tosh fan. Those who purchase "Bush Doctor," are sure to play the classic album through time and time again, hands down.

Awesome album. Couldn't find any download versions of this album, so had to go with "old fashioned" CD. Just reminded me how much better CD's sound compared to MP3's.
