Burning Spear


The photo above inspired me to write about Burning Spear.

Many years ago, I came across a CD of vintage reggae songs called Studio One Presents Rare Reggae: Collector's Edition.

There was an early Burning Spear single on it called Live Good. I gave it no more thought than that.



It would take me hearing the song Marcus Garvey to light the fire under me for Burning Spear.

I was more than happy to buy the 2CD Burning Spear - Chant Down Babylon The Island Anthology I found at one of my favorite Plateau music stores.




I discovered another favorite single, Slavery Days, thanks to that compilation.
