These legendary recordings from Winston Rodney, A/K/A Burning Spear, have been put together by Soul Jazz Records as they continue to explore the vaults of the mighty Studio One Records, the foundation label of Reggae.This compilation features classic tracks alongside super rare releases to bring a long overdue collection of Burning Spear¹s classic Studio One material. Burning Spear¹s radical music defined and pioneered Roots music in the late 60s and early 1970s giving them a timeless quality today. Sir Coxsone Dodd, in turn, was the first Jamaican producer to promote this new Rastafarian-based music. Over the past fifty years Jamaica has produced many great singers, songwriters and musicians but few have ever been able to approach the sustained inventiveness, spiritual commitment to an ideal as Burning Spear. His career has spanned three decades and today Burning Spear is a legend. Burning spear and Clement Dodd parted company in 1974 after creating one of the most impressive bodies of work ever made at Studio One that laid the foundations of reggae music as it is known today. This important release makes what had become the exclusive preserve of serious record collectors available to any and every one.
