Presenting Burning Spear - Studio One Session 1973

More reggae goodness in the roots tradition here, my children. The Burnig Spear has one of the most distinctive voices in all of reggae music and puts lie to all those naysayers who opine "it all sounds the same". These greaest session was produced by the great Coxsone Dodd , of whom much more will be heard later, and presents the Spear in early, fine form. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

Ethiopians Live It Out
We Are Free
Fire Down Below
Don't Mess With Jill
Down By The Riverside
Door Peep Shall Not Enter
Pick Up The Pieces
Get Ready
Them A Come
He Prayed
