BURNING SPEAR - HAIL H.I.M.
Burning Spear is Winston Rodney. But originally, Burning spear was a vocal group, very much like the Wailers. And like The Wailing Wailers became Bob Marley and the Wailers, Burning Spear became Winston Rodney.

After debuting for Clement Dodd's Studio One, where he released tracks like Door Peep, Spear went on and eventually landed on Island Records. For this label, that already had Bob Marley and the Wailers signed, he made a number of Roots Reggae albums of which Hail H.I.M. really stands out.

According to "the Rough Guide of Reggae", Hail H.I.M. is even "the final classic album by Burning Spear". Of course, people would (dis)agree with that, but there will be no disagreement over the enormous quality presented on the album.

When you realize, that the album was released in 1980, you will be amazed over the fact that the sound quality is truly superb. Burning Spear's militant and raw vocals go very well over the tight Roots Reggae played by Bob Marley's backing band, the Wailers.

Final classic or not, there is no debate: this is a classic. If you would only be able to have one Burning Spear Album, this would be your choice.
