A man whose reggae legacy lies unfittingly under the shadow of his former band-mate's, Peter Tosh and his songs served as Bob Marley's fiery id. While Marley' s own songwriting took on a more zen spirituality as he matured, Tosh projected a revolutionary fervor filled with thick ganja smoke, fire and brimstone. Marley' s most incendiary anthem ("Get Up, Stand Up" ) was a Tosh composition. The three-CD HONORARY CITIZEN clearly shows that, while his star may not have radiated with the same international acclaim as Bob's, Tosh was Marley's equal as singer, songwriter, bandleader and arranger. HONORARY CITIZEN does a remarkable job compiling previously unreleased or impossible-to-find recordings.
The earliest included tracks, recorded with The Wailers and released on one of the many Jamaican singles labels that serve as the indie backbone of reggae, unearth the most glowing treasures and insights. A soulful cover of the Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun" projects Tosh as a Marvin Gaye-type loverman; whereas "Mark Of The Beast" is an electric, reverb-drenched roots-reggae masterpiece by Tosh the Rasta preacherman. Rare dubs of hits ("Legalize It") are brought back from near-extinction. The live material from a 1982 world tour, presents Tosh as bandleader and world-weary performer. Ultimately, CITIZEN shows that Tosh's political righteousness ("Equal Rights," "No Nuclear War," etc.) was not compromised for his growing, world-wide audience.

Rolling Stone (9/18/97, p.106) - "...rehabilitates the former Wailer's rep with rare Jamaican singles, American album cuts...and fiery early '80s live tracks....Peter Tosh emerges as one of reggae's most authoritative figures..."
Entertainment Weekly (10/03/97, p.85) - "...paints a sweeping portrait of the man and includes a heap of obscurities and unreleased tracks. His history is told via a range of songs....Tosh emerges as a musician for whom religious and social idealism blended with high musical spirits." - Rating: A-
Q (1/02, pp.122-123) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...[gives] vent to the verbal swordsman's 'politrickal' opinions..."
Vibe (11/97, p.152) - "...a treasure for even the most faithful Tosh fan....HONORARY CITIZEN is a long-overdue testament to the neglected legacy of a misunderstood man..."
