Legalize It (Dub Club Remix) featuring Ranking Joe and produced originally by Tosh is as timeless and as close to perfection as any artist whose past works have been remixed could possibly get.
The general feel of the Remix still leaves the original feeling and intent of the Tosh’s music intact. A feat that a lot of other remixed songs of any genre fail to do. The four tracks included are a combination of some very nice dub versions equal of their own recognition by fans worldwide.
The song contains a very nice 70s roots rhythm, the lyrics leave a little to be desired. But the sincerity behind the plea to legalize the Rasta Sacrament Ganja comes through strong.The technical skill behind the remix dub versions could leave even the veteran listener wondering if this might be a previously unreleased 1976. Maximum respect is due to the team of producers who assembled and added some new life to this song.
In conclusion this release is worthy of obtaining. The song versions contained on it are quite consistent in quality and production.
