Legalize It Again...and Again and Again and AgainPosted
With the release of "Legalize It" in 1976, Peter Tosh proved he was a force to be reckoned with in the world of reggae music. It only takes one listen of the album to realize how much he had grown up since his time with The Wailers. Though only 9 songs long, Tosh's debut solo album made an indelible mark in music that can still be felt 35 years later. Having said that, the recently-released Legacy Edition of "Legalize It" is a little bit too much for the casual listener to handle. Spread out over 2 discs are a total of 32 songs, but none of them stray too terribly far from the original album's formula. Sure, we get demo versions of 7 of the original 9 songs, but they sound an awful lot like the album versions. Same goes for the Original Jamaican Mixes, the very first cut of the record sent out by Tosh himself. The only tracks truly worth listening to on this collection are the dub versions found at the end of disc 2. Otherwise, this collection winds up sounding a bit too redundant. My suggestion: Find the 10-track re-release that came out in 1999. Or, if you're lucky, get the "Legalize It/Equal Rights" 2-pack. You won't be sorry.
I would recommend this to a friend
