Peter Tosh Reggae Review
"Honorary Citizen"

A man of Jah, a Wailer, and most importantly an awesome reggae performer and writer,
describes Peter Tosh in a nutshell. To commemorate his musical contribution and legendary
songs, "Honorary Citizen" is a three disc box set with numerous titled hit tracks that
encompasses a collection of his best work
"Honorary Citizen" is categorized into three discs, all of which that reflect different
portions of Tosh's life. Disc one contains numerous underground reggae singles many may
have not heard. All of the titled tracks on this CD are remarkable, but however, the live
version of "Bumbo Klaat" is perfection at its best. Disc one exhibits Tosh's feelings on
ethical issues and world problems. His attitude toward the obstacles in life is reflected
throughout this CD. Tosh was very well-spoken and aware of world issues. His feelings
are revealed through songs such as "No Mercy" and "Arise Blackman" just to name a few,
which Tosh made his own interpretation of life.
Disc two is a combination of live songs from the early 80s. These songs define Tosh's
presence as a live stage performer. During this time, Tosh was on tour and many songs on
this CD are accompanied with Tosh's spoken words.
Disc three focuses on moral and classic issues which Tosh addresses. For example, the
track "Equal Rights" is featured and many more. Tosh was not new to such hard-line and
controversial issues. This disc addresses them head on and you will not be let down.
As an addition to this great reggae CD, the artwork is outstanding, enhancing the CD cover
and many photos inside the CD. There are extensive liner notes, and Tosh fans will be
very grateful for this well-put-together musical project of legendary reggae singer and
activist, Peter Tosh.
