Peter Tosh Talking Revolution

Does the world really need another live Peter Tosh album? Yes, rasta. Talking Revolution distills the original Wailer‘s fiery essence into one crucial package and two discs (one electric, one acoustic), spotlighting not only Tosh‘s talent but also his penchant for outspoken controversy. The speech he gives in the middle of a rousing 12-minute romp "Burial" is as jaw-dropping a listen today as it was in 1978, and from the opening "Igziabier" to the closing medley of "Legalise It/Get Up Stand Up" (both of which appear unplugged and separately on disc two), there‘s literally never a dull moment. The band‘s on fire and so is Tosh, who uses the occasion (the One Love World Peace concert) as his own personal pulpit to demand equal rights and justice for all.
