Malcolm X to Bob Marley's MLK in the original Wailers, Peter Tosh left the group on the eve of global acclaim for a militantly uncompromising solo career, taking early public stands against apartheid and brandishing a guitar in the shape of an AK-47. On 1976's Legalize It, he brashly mixed pro-ganja agitprop and Rasta musings, while introducing riddim section Sly & Robbie to an international audience; 1977's Equal Rights is roots reggae nonpareil and one of the most powerful political statements in any genre. These two-CD editions add unreleased demos, outtakes, and dubplates.
