Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Burning Spear includes: Winston Rodney (vocals).
  • Producers: Jack Ruby, Winston Rodney, Karl Pitterson.
  • Compilation producer: Trevor Wyatt.
  • One of the most powerful and influential figures in reggae is Winston Rodney, a.k.a. Burning Spear. His brand of reggae has resisted commercialization, and has always maintained the Rastafarian spirit. Which is not to say his music is strident or angry--this collection of songs from his many albums on Island spans many moods, with his earthy, direct, and soulful voice soaring above the insidious rhythms and melodies.
  • "Slavery Days" and "Throw Down Your Arms" become powerful anthems of pride and hope. Horns and keyboards are very prominent in Burning Spear's tunes, which are rich with the accents of American rhythm & blues. "Dry & Heavy" features spidery, blues-charged guitar playing and Rodney's almost disembodied voice, as if he were singing while overlooking a canyon; "Tradition" features him in a more relaxed, playful mood, as if he were trying to chase trouble away. Next to Bob Marley, virtually no one else in reggae can match Burning Spear's vocal range and passionate commitment to his music.
