Burning Spear - Reggae Greats album
Features Song Lyrics for Burning Spear's Burning Spear: Reggae Greats album. Burning Spear Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.
Although Reggae Greats would eventually be supplanted in the mid-'90s by Island's two-CD set Chant Down Babylon: The Island Anthology, until that point this compilation, along with Harder Than the Best, remained the best roundup of classic Burning Spear material from the roots era. Harder was originally released by Island in 1979, and annoyingly, when Reggae Greats followed five years later, it duplicated six of the earlier set's tracks. Marketing was mercenary even back in the "good old days. As to be expected, both sets drew exclusively from Spear's first four.
Reggae Greats is a best of album by reggae artist Burning Spear. The album is subtitled "Best of the Island Years 1975-1978" and was released in 1984.
