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.
