To me, this record is all about Winston Rodney trying to find the ghost in the Kingston machine, to locate in his music the ephemeral qualities that he intones at the beginning of “Mister Garvey”: “Light! Strength! Energy!” […]
Some of the songs need developing though Rodney is a chant singer not a writer of songs. The title song, plus It Is Good, Children, Door Peepand Groovy are the ones that move me. There is some disappointment but this is still a very good album. […]
this set allows us a more detailed view of Burning Spear, an artist fully engaged in the world around him. An essential album from a genuine visionary. […]
