Entertainment Reviews:

The Wire - 6/00, p.62
"...At once militant, joyous and devotional, MARCUS GARVEY busts out of the reggae genre....coupled with its dub companion...the dub set remains essential...making up the greatest ever roots reggae album."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.114
5 stars out of 5 -- "This is definitive roots: amid the dancing horns and molten rhythms, Spear mournfully declaims Rasta parables..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 8/02, p.77
Included in Mojo's 50 Greatest Reggae Albums - "...Outstanding melodies, trilling flutes and, above all, Winston Rodney's Garveyite quest for African repatriation grip the heart throughout..."
NME (Magazine) - 9/18/93, p.19

One of the most distinctive and original talents in the history of Reggae, Burning Spear--ne Winston Rodney--was launched internationally with this striking album. His deep, preaching vocal is immediately arresting, a characteristic enhanced by a dense and brooding accompaniment. Taking cues from Rastafarian chants, Spear subtly builds an intensity, locking each track into a seamless whole. His knowledge of black history brings a chilling realism to the album's lyrics, resulting in what is incontestably a milestone in the development of reggae. Listening to it is an education itself. The CD reissue has the bonus of the dub version GARVEY'S GHOST.
