Burning Spear was one of the first roots artists I discovered after Bob Marley. My friend Biniam gave me a cassette in 1992 that featured the sounds of Burning Spear and Augustus Pablo. It was just the thing I was looking for.
I'll have to admit that for me there's only two eras of Burning Spear, 1969 to 1975 and 1975 to 1982. The first era featured works with Coxsone Dodd at Studio One, while the second era featured songs with other producers that became absolute classics. This two part series contains material from those eras.
