Burning Spear:Ultimate Collection

“Marcus Garvey words come to pass,” Winston Rodney, known to the world as Burning Spear, opines on the seminal cut “Marcus Garvey.” Garvey, born in the parish of St. Ann in Jamaica, took a message of Black upliftment around the world, empowering the disenfranchised and ultimately inspiring millions. Garvey’s words resonate today partly because of a handful of Jamaican artists who have kept his words and thoughts alive. Spear, hailing (like reggae’s ultimate superstar, Bob Marley) from the same area, has continued Garvey’s work not only as lecturer and editorialist but as one of the hardest-working and best known reggae performers of all time. Born in 1948, Rodney came of age at the same time as reggae. His first late ’60s recordings are among those Studio One singles that signaled a new direction away from the ska and rock steady sound that previously dominated Jamaica. From the beginning, Spear’s unique African chant style was conscious and cultural, forging a sound he has never strayed far from in the intervening years.
