Peter Tosh – Live Acoustic and Interview Session KZEL Radio Studio, Eugene, OR

Peter Tosh – Unplugged

For those that have visited my blog.  I am not a big writer.  I have a very busy life and focus my posts on sharing rare music. Today is a special musical treat from the Bush Doctor Peter Tosh.  Live and chilling in the studio this gives a great glimpse into the intimate kind person Peter was, very warm, funny, and friendly.

Back in 1977 Peter Tosh did a tour of the USA.  Along the tour, Peter stopped a various radio stations to help promote his music and tour. One such occasion was at KZEL radio station in Eugene, OR. A few tracks from this session were released on the official Talking Revolution CD.  I try not to share official material, Peter Tosh fans should buy all official releases and support his estate. Many thanks to Roger Steffens for this gem.
