Video: Peter Tosh Live In Montreux, 1979

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - Almost three decades after the event, young and old will still be amazed by this massive performance of the Militant Wailer.

The story is well-known. Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh formed the original (Wailing) Wailers back in the 1960's and subsequently they went their own way.

Like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh made his own specific style within the rhythm of Reggae. Sharp guitars, fat productions, a lot of vibes resembling -then- popular forms of Rock music.

Peter Tosh was by far the most militant of the three original Wailers. His typical -wailing- style of singing, combined with his dreadful appearance made you really want to pay attention to what he had to say.

In this video, we will see Peter Tosh performing with an all-star list of Reggae Musicians including Sly and Robbie who are -needless to say- playing a solid foundation of drum and bass.

The concert is one long line of Word Sound and Power. Impressive introductions and bridges between tracks, long improvisations on themes, it's all there.
