Peter Tosh: My Father’s Place, Roslyn, NY, 1978 & 1979 (2 shows)

I’m sharing these historic shows at the request of my friend Murray Elias from New York, who attended.  Murray is a legendary figure in the world of reggae, being partially responsible for  it’s success in taking hold in America in the 70s and 80s.  He launched a now-legendary reggae radio show in Binghamton, NY – a show which is still broadcast today.  He was also very influential in bringing dancehall to the urban massive in the U.S.  More on Murray later…
Enjoy these shows.  Two excellent soundboard recordings, one from 1978 and the other from 1979.   The Bush Doctor performing at the historic Old Roslyn venue ‘My Father’s Place.’
Also included is a review of the 1978 show by Tony Kornheiser.  The article was published in the July 30, 1978 edition of the New York Times.
