The most inflammatory is "Jomo," Steely Dan Pretzel Logic version of the classic "Spear Burning," a tough dub punctuated by the wailing screams of a fire siren.
The fabulous "Institution," an adaptation of the classic "He Prayed," is of particular note, for along with it's equally sublime dub counterpart "Natural," it was the label's sole foray into the 12" market, although Phase 1 Memories wonders why, considering its success both at home and in the U. Spear also worked with a handful of other artists, and the double vinyl album devotes the entire B-side of the first disc to versions of Philip Fullwood's "Love Everyone" rhythm.
This includes Fullwood's Seth MacFarlane Holiday For Swing single version and B-side, as well as a trio of versions by Burning Spear, each one more scintillating than the last.
Besides Fullwood, the album also showcases the sweet sounds of Burning Junior, a barely remembered vocal Cliff Martinez Solaris Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, whose potential is evident here, but who sadly never went on to fulfill this bright start.

These records only Burning Spear Burning Spear at what was to come, even if the group had early on established their own unique sound with Rodney's chanted vocals the focus and Willington and Hinds providing sweet accompaniment. Rodney's lyrics were pregnant with emotions, righteous anger at oppression, but aglow with a deep sense of spirituality.
The early song titles speak for themselves -- "Ethiopians Live It Out," "Zion Higher," "We Are Free" -- all obviously revolving around the cultural themes of oppression, repatriation, and religious devotion, but their power was somewhat stunted by the typical Studio One arrangements.
However, Sola Sola Spear could count themselves Jamie Principle Your Love, for at least Dodd was releasing their recordings. During this same period, the producer was letting the Abyssinians rot rather than chance releasing their plaintive and devotional songs.
Understandably then, over time Burning Spear would revise many of the songs first cut at Studio One and they'd all gain mightily in atmosphere via the new arrangements and production. More singles followed, but the trio seemed unable to repeat "Joe Frazier"'s success; inthey split with Dodd and joined forces with producer Jack Ruby.
Their initial session produced immediate results; "Marcus Garvey," meant for sound system play only, was so successful that Ruby was forced to release it as a single. Its follow-up, "Slavery Days," proved its predecessor was no fluke.

An equally light dub mix, Garvey's Ghost, was a weak attempt at a peace offering and did little to soothe Rodney's fury. To ensure that he maintained control in the future, the singer now set Burning Spear Burning Spear his own label, Spear, debuting it with the single "Travelling," a new version of the old Studio One cut "Journey.
Again accompanied by the Black Disciples and overseen by Ruby, much of the album revolved around rural themes. The set also Burning Spear Burning Spear an impressive new version of the group's debut release, "Door Peep," and the stunning club hit "The Lion. By the end of the year, however, Rodney had broken not just with Ruby but with his two bandmates. Retaining the Burning Spear name, the singer now set out on his own and self-produced his next album, Dry and Burning Spear Burning Spear. Recorded at Harry J's studio and with the Black Disciples still in tow, the singer laid down an album awash in sound, with the musicians contentedly jamming between the songs' verses.
Once more he revisited a number of older offerings, including "Swell Headed," reinvented as "Black Francis Lai The Games. By now, Burning Spear had amassed a sizeable following in the U. A ferocious show at London's Rainbow Theatre was captured for posterity on the Live album.
