      Straight out of Maxfield Avenue's Channel One camp TRS present the heavyweight sounds of 'Blood Shot Eyes' by Roland Burrel released by way of the Montego Bay reissue imprint by Lake Brothers Records. Currently residing in Mo Bay, Roland Burrel was born in Pennants, Clarendon but raised in Trench Town and was musically coached and counselled by the late Toots Hibbert. During his growing artistic years, Roland sang with a group called The Shades, where he encountered Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Thereafter, Roland quickly rose to popular fame when he recorded the chartbuster 'Johnny Dollar,' a song that topped the Jamaican charts in Europe, USA and Japan. Realizing his strength as a songwriter, singer, musician, Roland was always conscious of the challenges that is ever present in the pursuit of excellence within a very competitive music industry. 'Blood Shot Eyes' is a perfect representation of where Roland Burrel was during the early part of the 80s.
