Wasting no time in the aftermath of Peter Tosh's murder in September 1987, his label, Capitol, quickly readied and released a retrospective compilation, which arrived in the new year. Obviously, the tracks were drawn from the six Tosh albums Capitol had rights to -- 1978's Bush Doctor, the following year's Mystic Man, 1981's Wanted Dread & Alive, 1983's Mama Africa, the following year's Captured Live, and 1987's No Nuclear War, Tosh's final set. It's hard to do justice to any of these sets, never mind the artist himself, in 11 tracks, but The Toughest, which oddly doesn't include "I'm the Toughest," does the best it can under the circumstances. Each of the albums gets a look, with party songs like "Reggaemylitis" and "Coming in Hot" rubbing shoulders with the more introspective "Bush Doctor" and "Mystic Man," while musically pop and roots vie for attention. What's lacking, however, are any of Tosh's more militant songs, the ones that defined his reputation back home in Jamaica. No surprise there. While he was alive, Capitol was forced to accept this side of Tosh; once he was gone, they could safely ignore it. And so taking a stance they continue to hold, the label deep-sixed Tosh the revolutionary in favor of a creating a less threatening legend, a makeover Capitol has reinforced with every subsequent compilation. Apparently, this is precisely what American fans wanted -- or perhaps they just never had the opportunity to discover the true depths of the man turned reggae icon.

Objetivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

Álbum clave en la discografía de Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon es el fruto de una elaboración relativamente lenta que se remonta prácticamente a 1968. A Saucerful Of Secrets (la canción principal del álbum del mismo nombre) fue, para Nick Mason, el punto de partida. Un tiempo más tarde, Ummagumma permitió la expresión de unas personalidades que se tendrían que amalgamar para conseguir el éxito. Pink Floyd continuó su búsqueda del disco ideal con Meddle, en el que la banda acentuó su dominio del trabajo en estudio, y Atom Heart Mother, antes de alcanzar el nirvana con The Dark Side Of The Moon, cuya perfección aún no ha sido nunca erosionada cuarenta y cinco años después de su lanzamiento.

David Rodigan, la voz del reggae

Desde hace cuarenta años David Rodigan es la voz del reggae de la FM británica. Pero este amante del género, que comenzó su andadura en la BBC Radio London en 1978, no se ha limitado a su labor como locutor radiofónico sino que ha pinchado en clubs y festivales hasta convertirse en todo un campeón del soundclash, tradicional competición jamaicana de DJ (“selectors”) que se enfrentan entre sí poniendo discos, normalmente versiones especiales de hits de reggae denominadas “dubplates” –en las que el artista cambia la letra para mencionar o elogiar el nombre del selector–. Coincidiendo con la publicación de su libro Life in Regga, a principios de este 2018, David Rodigan ha hablado para Qobuz de esas versiones exclusivas, de sus viajes a Jamaica, de sus frenéticas sesiones y de su “místico” encuentro con Bob Marley.
