Peter Tosh - Johnny B. Goode
In 1983 did Peter Tosh a phenomenal cover of "Johnny B. Goode" which landed in the lower reaches of the U.S. Top 50. The single was a taster for his new album, Mama Africa, which also arrived that year. With a cast of musicians numbering in the "very many" range, featuring Sly and Robbie among the throng, this is a good record for fans of the book of Peter. "Stop That Train" and "Johnny B. Goode" stand out as the real gems here, but the entire record is worth your attention. The loping, rolling sway of the island sound and the serious message of music is Peter's stock n trade. A good record with a great cover. Can't ask for more than that.
So enjoy todays version of Johnny B. Goode
