Remastered Double 180 Gram vinyl edition that features rare and unreleased dub mixes. After spending 12 years as a member of Bob Marley's Wailers, Peter Tosh was eager to break free from the shadow of the legendary frontman. In 1976, he released Legalize It, still one of the most significant albums in the history of reggae. The title track expresses one of Tosh's many political causes, justifying the legalization of marijuana as a remedy for various medical ailments. Burial is one of several tracks that features the talents of the Wailers' stand-out lead guitarist, Al Anderson. Tosh adds his own seasoning to the reggae pot as he incorporates keyboards in whatcha gonna do and synthesizers and sound effects on Igziabeher. ketchy shuby, a sing-along about fooling around, features the background vocal talents of Rita Marley, Bunny Wailer, and Judy Mowatt. Tosh's life ended too early, and Legalize it is the strongest testament to his legacy. Take a listen, and share the spirit of his genius.
