Every track is great.

"Wanted Dread & Alive," Peter Tosh's final album for the Rolling Stones' label, was released in 1981 in the aftermath of the death of Tosh's former bandmate, Bob Marley. With that event, mystique and intrigue surrounded Tosh's new album with its prevocative, enigmatic music. Equally enticing is the addition of several tracks not on the U.S. album, "Rok With Me," "Oh Bumbo Klaat," and "Guide Me From My Friends," as well as two previously unreleased alternate versions of "Rok With Me," and the duet with Gwen Guthrie "Nothing But Love".

The opening track, "Coming In Hot," is a purposely violent depiction of Tosh's personal bout with a heavy fever at the beginning of the year, although some thought this was a song in answer to Bob Marley's "Coming In From the Cold". The other track tied to Marley was the soothing, beautiful "Fools Die (For Want of Wisdom)," originally entitled "Wisdom," when it was made with Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley years before. The reason for the connection is that both Marley and Tosh had made covers of this old song, and the lyrics in Tosh's "Fools Die (For Want of Wisdom)," were seen as tied to Bob Marley's cover, "Stiff Necked Fools".

Here, Tosh does give slight exposure to a fun side with the danceable, fun song "Reggaemylitis," reffering to a disease only reggae can cure. Also here to show Tosh's fun side are the R&B-style songs "Nothing But Love," and "Rok With Me," the first being a smash-hit duet with Gwen Guthrie.

I love Tosh and I was fortunate enough to see him perform live several times before he died. That said, this is a very uneven release. There are top shelf songs here that belong in any Tosh collection, including the spiritual "Rastafari Is" (although I like the extended, heavy, live version included on Complete Captured Live better), "Wanted Dread & Alive," "Reggaemylitis," "Coming In Hot," and "Guide Me From My Friends." An especially welcome treat for me is the inclusion of "Oh, Bumbo Clot" on the remastered version of the CD - this is a scathing Tosh song that he would sometimes perform live but was never released on the US vinyl edition of Wanted Dread & Alive. The two love songs on the record, the duet "Nothing But Love" and the attempted single "Rock With Me," are extremely commercial, very disappointing and always elicit a "skip track" response from me. It is not that Peter Tosh cannot write or sing a good love song - check out the great pair he put on his first release, Legalize It - it's just that these songs are sub par and sound extremely out-dated. The production of the record is good, but many of the songs lack the punch that they would later achieve live in concert. Even Tosh's next, and admittedly poppier-sounding release, Mama Africa, is more consistent in its conception and delivery. If building a Tosh collection, I would highly recommend starting with Equal Rights. Equal Rights is Tosh's finest, most polished, most consistent, and ultimately most rewarding work, filled with well-crafted, excellently performed, highly political songs.Read more ›

This 1981 album is far superior to even classics like Mama Africa, because it is grittier in sound and has more variety in the songwriting. This album was underrated when it was first-released. But, remastered with extra tracks, it must be re-evaluated as the classic album from Tosh that it is! It is not as great as Equal Rights, but it is still EXCELLENT Peter Tosh, with classic tracks like Coming in Hot and Fools Die (For Want of Wisdom). Great Peter Tosh listening experience.

The year 1981 was a conflicted time to the ever-controversial Minister of Herb, who worked harder than ever to promote his album without the Rolling Stones. "Wanted" was the last time Sly and Robbie would record with Tosh and two album versions were released. The original tracks, plus an alternate long mix of "Rock Me" are included on this cd. Powerfull tracks such as "Rastafari Is", the title track is a furious answer to those who wanted him dead. However, the album did include commercial aspects in the shape of "Nothing but love", a duet with Jamaican solo star and studio backup singer, Gwen Guthrie. The heart moving ballad "Fools Die" gave the album additional depth, but my personal favourite "Guide me from my friends", previously released on his European edition of "Wanted" is a perfect blending between the bass, the Tamlin's background vocals, the heavy beat of Sly Dunbar, the melodious sound of guitars and keyboards giving the right tone, a prophetical shot straight to those smiling faces;"I Know my enemies" replies Tosh. This complete "wanted" version is highly recommended and ranks with Peter Tosh best "Word, Sound and Power" ever.
