Burning Spear started off at Studio One as a duo featuring Winston Rodney with Rupert Willington doing harmonies. After their first tune "Door Peep" dropped, they were joined by Delroy Hinds, the brother of Justin Hinds. This trio went on to record with Coxsone until 1975 when they teamed up with Jack Ruby for the most definitive work from the producer. The trio broke up in 1976 and Rodney continued on his own.
This show captures the fire that was burning during this time, with the anthemic tunes that went on to become roots classics. Rodney was the chanting cleric among reggae's princes, priests and warriors. In this mix, you'll hear some special remixes of some of his tunes, especially dub versions, with the American mix of a dub in one channel and the Jamaican mix of the dub in the other. There's also a nice run of his tunes focusing on the prophet, Marcus Garvey.
