Peter Tosh: Roxy 1979/1981

Over the next week, I will be sharing Peter Tosh archives every day in honor of Peter and in commemoration of his untimely death, which occurred on September 11, 1987.  On September 11, 2012, I will share a rare interview that regular contributor to the blog Doug Wendt, AKA Midnight Dread, conducted with Peter.  In addition to the interview, for the very first time Wendt will also share a very interesting personal story regarding the circumstances surrounding the interview.

Today I’m sharing a rare rehearsal tape from the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, CA.  Tosh and his band rehearse for their show at the Roxy on August 20, 1981.  I have also included a review of the show written by Terry Atkinson and published in the Los Angeles Times on August 24, 1981.

Since there is no recorded show available for the 1981 performance, I have included an audio file of Tosh’s performance at The Roxy on February 5, 1979, which occurred during Tosh’s 4-night run at the club from February 3-7, 1979.
