Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the late great Winston Hubert McIntosh otherwise known as Peter Tosh. Peter Tosh was a former member of the Bob Marley lead band The Wailers who left later down to pursue a solo career and was successful. “Glass House” was one of Peter Tosh’s many hits. “Glass House” was released in 1983 and produced by Peter Tosh for his Intel-Diplo HIM (Intelligent Diplomat for His Imperial Majesty) label. His song was also featured on his 6th studio album, “Mama Africa” which was released the same year. He sings about people who aim to belittle others while they themselves aren’t doing well with their own lives. In the song he chants the very popular proverb, “If you live in a glass house, don’t throw stones“.
“Glass House” became one of Peter Tosh’s most memorable hits and charted high in overseas as well as in Jamaica. He went on to release many other singles and one more studio album until his tragic death on September 11, 1987. His songs are still played worldwide and his family continues to carry on his legacy.
Thank you Peter Tosh for your classic song. Rest In Peace.
