PETER TOSH Released His Classic Debut Longplayer ‘LEGALIZE IT’ 45 Years Ago

9 June 2021

Real name: Winston Hubert McIntosh .
19 October 1944 – 11 September 1987
The Jamaican reggae recorded 7 solo LPs
after he left Bob Marley’s Wailers.

Released: June 1976 – 45 years ago

AllMusic / Vik Iyengar: “After years of being overshadowed by Bob Marley,
Peter Tosh left the Wailers to pursue a solo career. Released in 1976, Legalize It
is a bold statement that Peter Tosh had arrived and was a creative force in his
own right. Although he explores some issues of spirituality, this is Tosh’s most
lightweight album in the sense that it is his least political… ‘Legalize It’ cemented
Tosh’s position as a giant in reggae, and the album is one of the best albums of
the genre.”
