Muze PNote Not many singers can sing "I am wanted by the evil forces" without sounding paranoid, but with Peter Tosh, you believe it. By 1982, Peter Tosh had been brutalized by the Jamaican police more than once. His chief crime was speaking out against the forces of oppression in his native land. As the wanted poster on the cover indicates, WANTED DREAD OR ALIVE finds Peter Tosh in a typically combative mode.
Muze PNote The record begins with both guns blazing on the menacing "Coming in Hot." The mood lets up on the uncharacteristically schmaltzy "Nothing But Love," a duet with soul diva Gwen Guthrie, and on the laid-back "Reggae-Mylitis," a sort of dreadlocked cousin of "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu." But in general, this is dark stuff indeed. He inveighs against the wickedness of Babylon on the chilling "Cold Blood" and the crisp, powerful title track. A rock-solid backing group, including the legendary rhythm section of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, supplies sympathetic support to Tosh's gruff, impassioned vocals. On "That's What They Will Do," Tosh sings of friends' betrayal, eerily presaging his death at the hands of a former companion in 1987.
