Peter Tosh - Bush Doctor

A record best known for the presence of the Glimmer Twins, including a duet with Mick on (You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back, Bush Doctor is one of Tosh's most accessible but interesting records.

We got Mick out of the way. The duet is great, but Keef's riffing on the title track is definitely a highlight of the record. Whereas Mick is turned up in the mix and overpowers Tosh, Keith's searing overdubs are mixed perfectly and fit in tastefully.

My favorite tracks on the record are the soulful "self-help" song Pick Myself Up and the ambient sound collage Creation.
