Roots Corner: Peter Tosh - Get Up Stand Up (Acoustic)



Acoustic track from the roots archive of "Get Up Stand Up" by Peter Tosh. Figured Id throw in the original since we posted the Aotearoa remix version a couple posts back. And since on the topic of voting, its interesting that reggae although a highly political music, tends to stay fairly neutral when it comes to endorsing political parties. I wonder what would happen if reggae was able to motivate the younger generations to go out and elect a younger political candidate who was a true leader that made changes to genuinely benefit the masses of people and wasn't down for the corruption that has polluted politics. After all, in a democracy, the people are the ones with the power.. who says it couldn't be the younger ones calling some shots.  Just some food for thought.

Smooth R&B/Reggae artist, Alo Key, out of Missouri! Just recently dropped his new album, Movin On, that had a couple nice tracks worth spreading. Gotta love his smooth vocals and style. Enjoy!
