Studio One Presents Burning Spear (1973)

“Though he is better known for his releases on Island during the mid-’70s, Winston Rodney (aka Burning Spear) wrote an equally important chapter in reggae music during the first half of that decade. The singer began his professional career on a series of recordings for the legendary Studio One label during the years 1969-1974. Aided by singer/producer Larry Marshall and singer Rupert Willington, the resulting music was some of the most innovative of the style eventually categorized as roots reggae. Known alternately as Presenting or simply Burning Spear, this debut set collects 12 of the sides he cut during the period.”
