Part of a three-night concert series at Jamaica’s National Stadium which also featured Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond and Dennis Brown, this is generally regarded as Peter Tosh’s final live performance. As Roger Steffens wrote, “Peter uses the M-16 rifle-guitar, spraying the crowd while Santa Davis beats out machine-gun rat-a-tats, eerily invoking their shootings four years later.” Watch a clip of Tosh performing “You Can’t Blame the Youth” below, and listen to the full audio here.
