CD Reviews

Jah say, "Yes!"
Bruddah Haole | Listening to this album! | 11/14/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album was really hard to find until they released this remastered version.Definitely worth picking up as it contains a number of standout tracks, including "Mystic Man" and "Crystal Ball", which were included on his "Toughest" hits compilation. "Recruiting Soldiers", "Can't You See" and "Jah Say No" are also so good, they might have been considered for that greatest hits album as well if it was a double-CD.5 Bonus tracks are included as well, which, if nothing else, extend the listening pleasure."
Mystical Powers from the Bush Doctor

(5 out of 5 stars)

""Mystic Man" can be called Peter's finest studio work in the Rolling Stones Records and in my personal opinion; in his whole musical career. A vast improvement on "Bush Doctor" with more originality and less cross over material, the second album for the Stones level shines with a Peter returning to a more obscure and roots musical form.By the original release year in July of 1979 the album and tour was garnishing positive reviews, what did not happened a year before with "Bush Doctor" where critics had claimed Peter had gone soft and entering into the world of pop. "Mystic Man" highlights include "Recruting Soldiers", "Jah Say No", "Crystal Ball" and of course; the title track. The album was recorded in Jamaica at Dynamic Sound Studios and finished at Sound Mixers in New York city. Musicians included the golden age bedrock of late '70s reggae, Sly and Robbie on drum and bass, along with five members of Stax-style horn selection, the mighty Mao Chung on guitar, Robbie Lynn on keyboards, a female backing trio and the Tamlins (first collaboration with Peter).As always,Tosh's talk goes back to the oppresion of the masses; as he once said to an american journalist "My lifestyle can never change no matter how much money I make. I'll get more aggressive against imperialism, against the system that is set to brutalize,victimize,exploit,kill and do everything that degradating".
Peter Tosh's 1979 album gives us the right ammunition to fight on, even in these days."
His greatest.

"I rate Mystic Man as the greatest because of the soft harmonies that he sings on "The Day the Dollar Die," and "Crystal Ball." His singing reminiscent of his ska days. I am surprised that they didn't release the 12minute live version of "Buckingham Palace." I think that Peter set out to make this a concept album on future events. "Can't you see," is a good track, but the original version (which is better) can be found on "The Toughest" from Heartbeat Records."
