iTunes Editors’ Notes

With his dark shades, towering stature, and deadly serious demeanor, Peter Tosh brought an edge of raw physicality and streetwise charisma to The Wailers that helped make them one of the greatest reggae outfits of all time.

The disco mixes feature stripped-down, finely tuned productions that frequently improve on the glossier productions of Tosh’s full-lengths.
