Peter Tosh/Touch, however you prefer to remember him is nothing short of classic. The Rastafarion Malcom X, comes through in all his glory on this album. If you are a fan of reggea or the Wailers this will do nothing but enhance your collection.

9 timeless classics, these tunes are as cool and powerful as anything Tosh produced, both lyrically and rhythmically. He is certainly among the greatest Reggae legends of all time. It is a crime how severely unknown and unavailable this particular jewel is. I believe it is Tosh's best solo effort - smoothe, strong, and crisp. The title track alone is worth the price of admission. Add to it other gems like 'Glass House', 'Maga Dog', 'Peace Treaty', and 'Feel No Way' and you have a reason for inventing the repeat button.

Peter Tosh's in your face form of reggae made him a roots hero in Jamaica, Africa, and beyond because he wasn't afraid to take on what he saw as wrong. His classic lps "Legalize It" and "Equal Rights" showcase Tosh's fierce loyalties to what he felt was right.
1983's "Mama Africa" also falls in this category. Whether his re-recording of his "Stop That Train," the Wailers' classic, the scathing "Peace Treaty," or the self explanatory "Glasshouses" (if you live in glasshouses/don't throw stones), Tosh continues his no holds barred attack on things he saw as wrong.
A very critical work for Tosh, "Mama Africa" was his 1st lp for EMI records, and the best selling lp of his to that time since "Equal Rights," and it proved that Tosh could still deliver the goods that made him the hero he was.

This is a fine piece by the late , great Peter Tosh. Tosh's concept of Rasta come through on this album. I had the original record I lost and duppies destroyed my last copy. The bonus tracks are great also that did not appear on original release. Tosh lives on as all rasta's do through Iration. Must purchase for all those that like music that does not mash you up with subliminals.

This album could've easily been titled "The Handbook of Life"! It's diverse, righteous, brutally honest and entertaining. Not only is Mr. Tosh one of the greatest musicans ever but he has the most commanding voice in any genre of music. If you don't believe me, listen to "Not Gonna Give It Up". You'll see!

This is the CD which I regard as one of the best works of Peter Tosh.All the tracks are the Bomb. Song like "Feel no way" make me want to cry because of their message, bass,drums and all other instruments.Glass House is also one of the all time favourites. This is the Reggae CD you've always wanted to buy and Amazon has got it for you. BUY THIS PIERCE OF WORK AND YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT, NOT EVER! Peter Tosh is the Best.Rastafari. To guarantee you, E-mail me if you are dissatisfied.
