Another gem
Sean M. Kelly | Portland, Oregon United States | 09/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Released in 1977, "Dry & Heavy" was a very satisfying album amidst chaos within the Spear camp.A quick look at the credits will show that original members Rupert Wellington and Delroy Hines are nowhere to be found on them. Winston Rodney (hereafter known as "Burning Spear") dropped the 2 for reasons I am not sure of. Nevertheless, Burning Spear plowed ahead."Dry and Heavy" are basically reworkings of many of his very early Studio One recordings from the early 70's and renamed. The results clearly show that Winston Rodney was/is/and continues to be/ the driving force that is Burning Spear.This recording is the first glimpse at the post-trio Spear, and ,augmented by many of the great studio musicians of the time (Robbie, Family Man Barrett, Chinna Smith), doesn't miss a beat.Essental listening."

"This excepcional cd, which inlcudes newly made songs and re-made songs from his two first vinyls, is still in the line begined in 1973 with The Studio One Presents The Burning Spear. Real roots reggae music, a must have for all fans of mr. rodney and reggae fans in general."
Tremendous Album

"This album is one of Spear's best, along with Marcus Garvey. The songs Any River, The Sun and I W.I.N. are simply awesome. His voice is clear and the instrumentation is marvelous. One of the best reggae albums ever made."
