February 3, 2006: Peter Tosh
Peter Tosh, born as Winston Hubert McIntosh, was most well known for his role in the Wailers, but also had a long successful solo career. Tosh had an edge to him that the other Wailers did not, and a blunt honesty that chased out the spirits of babylon.
Tosh was a wordsmith, and loved to play with the "word sound" of language, transforming words to emphasize or align with their true meanings. This intelligence came out in his tough and direct lyrics.
This set was a chance to give a proper salute to this soldier and mystic. Included are some of my favorite Tosh tracks across the years.
