Title:   “Bush Doctor”

Label:   ROLLING STONES RECORDS ~ CUN 39109.  Stereo pressing. 

Year:  1978.

Condition:   Album is STILL SEALED in original factory shrink wrap, which is sparkling clean and fully intact.  Hype sticker “Scratch & Sniff / Includes single ‘DON’T LOOK BACK’” with Rolling Stones logo is neatly affixed to the shrink wrap, along with the original retail price sticker.

NOTE:  This album came from the extensive personal collection of the former owner of a chain of retail music stores who retired from the business in the early 80’s.  The albums have been stored virtually untouched and unplayed since that time in a climate controlled, non-smoking environment.  We are in the process of offering many investment grade coloured vinyl LPs, promos, sealed LPs, and other rare collector items from this collection in the coming months.  If you desire MINT albums, you will not be disappointed.

Review:

“As the debut album on the Rolling Stone label in 1978, Bush Doctor benefited immensely from the involvement of Jagger and Richards, as well as the publicity inherent in the high-profile nature of the release.  Thankfully, Tosh was up to the challenge, and although there are moments that are less roots than anything he had previously recorded, Bush Doctor is no slick sellout.  It's bolstered by his incredible Word Sound & Power band featuring the legendary Sly & Robbie rhythm section along with lead guitarists Mikey "Mao" Chung and Donald Kinsey (fresh from his stint with Marley).  Although the cover of the Temptations' "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back" single featuring Jagger's duet with Tosh seemed like an obvious ploy at crossover radio play, the rest is more roots conscious, and only slightly less compelling than some of ex-bandmate Bob Marley's work.  The horns on "Moses -- The Prophet" seem like sweetening, but the title track, "I'm the Toughest," "Stand Firm," and a remake of an old Wailers' track "Dem Ha Fe Get a Beatin," complete with I-Threes-style backing vocals, are some of Tosh's best songs.  Only the original album's closing track, an ambitious but overwrought retelling of Genesis with Handel's "Messiah," is a major misstep.  Yet even here, Tosh is pushing boundaries, adding bird and thunder sound effects to his soft guitar strumming accompaniment.  It's interesting but few will want to hear it more than once.”
