Toughest Peter Tosh – The Selection 1978 to 1987

LP (Item 454569) EMI/Capitol/Parlophone, Mid 70s/1980s — Condition: Near Mint-
A great slice of the latter part of Peter Tosh's career, militant hard roots rock as the title suggests. Production is by Tosh with Robbie Shakespeare for the most part, with 11 numbers in all, including "Coming In Hot", "Don't Look Back", "Pick Myself Up", "Crystal Ball", "Mystic Man", "Reggaemylitis", "Bush Doctor", "Maga Dog", "Johny B Goode", "Equal Rights/Downpresser Man" and "In My Song".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Jimmy Cliff

Follow My Mind
Reprise, 1975. Sealed
Warmly-crafted work from Jimmy Cliff – a mid 70s set that has the singer emerging way past the Kingston scene, to a role where he feels much more like a global soul superstar overall! Make no mistake, there's definitely plenty of reggae on the album – but the record also marks that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1975. Near Mint-
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit!

Chalice

Blasted
Pipe Music (Jamaica), 1981. Very Good
Like some of the other groups that were beginning to gain notice in the late 70s and early 80s, Chalice were not only self contained and self produced, but moved easily between a more accessible style of roots and soulful lovers rock, giving them wide appeal that oddly never really extended outside ...

Discovery, 1963/1983. Near Mint-
A great album recorded in 1963 for Atlantic – one of our favorite ever!

Isley Brothers

Go All The Way
T Neck, 1980. Very Good- Gatefold
It's the end of the 70s, and the Isleys are still going strong – keeping it real by dropping some of the fake funk of a few years before, and going for a smooth soul sound that would be one of their biggest strengths during the early 80s. This sound can be heard to perfection on the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
