Reliving Peter Tosh live at the Montreux Jazz Festival

Offbeat travels back in time to July 16, 1979, 30 years past, to figuratively relive reggae legend Peter Tosh performing a devastating live set at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
The concert was performed in The Casino which is mostly known for having been burnt down eight years earlier and memorialized in the Deep Purple song "Smoke on the Water."

Watch the concert live via You Tube video 1 -16.
