Each of the dreadlocked prophets who made up reggae's "holy trinity"-- Bob MarleyBunny Livingstonand Peter Tosh --sang for "equal rights and justice. His voice held the threat of danger, turning sufferahs' dreams and Rastafarian complaints into urgent demands. All the tracks in this remastered set--Tosh's first for an American major and his first collaboration with drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare who went on to become reggae's legendary "riddim twins" --instantly became anthems, not just in reggae, but within the international pop lexicon.
Not Tosh. Against the background of today's turbulent social climate, Legalize It still sends chills up the spine with the sheer spectacle of a great reggae warrior's refusal to bow.

At least that's how it feels now at six plus decades of "puttin' in time on this Bardo. It is indeed unfortunate that the introduction of Reggae into the planetary awareness necessitated a 'Westernization' of its very Jamaican roots. The contrast between the two editions of this album demonstrates this in an unusually stark manner. These are essential contributions to the primal spirit of Reggae.
It is, in this context, important to mention the Legacy Edition of Tosh's "Equal Rights," as it allows a window into Peter's mind as he develops what would become one of the most politically powerful expressions of Reggae's message. It is a hopeful sign that the Reggae Revival now underway in Jamaica will initiate a second wave of influence, the first having suffered such serious setbacks with Marley's death and Tosh's Peter Tosh - Legalize It . He accomplished so much prior to his tragic death inhe was a self taught musician who taught Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer how to play guitar.
His songs were the most revolutionary in the bands catalog and his strong personality was both admired an feared. He and Bunny left The Wailers in and began their own careers to more openly express their own message and ideas. Bob had begun to dominate the band with his immense talent and they felt that their message needed to be more readily explored and accessible.
Peter, never being one to shy away from a controversial topic, hit the ground running with this wonderful album. The album cover and title track caused quite the stir when Peter Tosh - Legalize It and Tosh wouldn't have had it any other way!
He was known to fire up a joint right before walking out on stage and allow the ganja to inspire him throughout the performance. The lyrics of the song speaks to the hypocrisy of the laws against weed when, as his sang, judges, lawyers, nurses, doctors, patients, animals, etc where actively partaking of the herb.
But this album is much more that 3. Adagio - Haydn* - Orpheus Chamber Orchestra - Symphonies No. 44 Trauer-Symphonie • No. 77 platform for the defense of ganja.
This is a great album by Tosh and the beginning of a wonderful solo career that would produce some of the best music that Reggae would have to offer. His stature over the years has grown immensely as more people came to truly understand the wisdom of his songs and message. He was already, in many places, as popular as his friend and bandmate Marley. Both necessary and needed to get the message and wisdom of Jah out to the masses. This is an all time classic worth all the praise it Peter Tosh - Legalize It and should be a part of any lover of great music collection.
Peter Tosh is one of those rare and precious artists who lived the message they sang Merkst Du - EMZSelf - EMZ Self. He knew what it was to be oppressed and wrongly accused for standing up for ones rights and sadly, he paid the ultimate price.
He, like Marley, was taken from us far too soon and I always believed that if both had lived, they would have ultimately gotten back together with Bunny and the rest of the band to record again.
While this never happened, we do have the greatest legacy they could have left to us their fans, their incredible songs and lives lived in service of Jah!
And that, afterall, is the greatest testament to the genius of a musician and the compassion of a human being. I tend to agree with the sentiments expressed in Comment Man's earlier review. However, after further exploration, I headed for much deeper waters and never looked back. After discovering the likes of The Abyssinians, Culture, Burning Spear Love On A Rooftop (Edit) - Desmond Child - Love On A Rooftop The Wailers early Lee Perry-produced material, I eventually dismissed "Legalize Ask The Stars - Various - The Downey Story - Landlocked Peter Tosh - Legalize It I viewed it as too slick and an obvious attempt to "crossover" to the international market.
