Out-of-print in the US. Man in the Hills is a reggae album by Jamaican musician Burning Spear (Winston Rodney), released in 1976 on Island Records. Man in the Hills was follow-up to the seminal Marcus Garvey; Man in the Hills is usually considered a worthy follow-up produced by Jack Ruby. It is a simple and unadorned album, with songs that reminisce about Spear's childhood in St. Anne's Bay, Jamaica.Recorded at Randy's Recording Studio, North Parade; and Harry J Studio, Roosevelt Avenue, Kingston, Jamaica.
A gem of an lp

""Man In the Hills" is one of many Burning Spear lps that I deem my favorites (like a silly child in a candy store, my favorite is whatever I listen to at that moment, though "Marcus Garvey" will always be the absolute favorite), and for good reason.As is commonplace for any early Spear effort, the trio adeptly takes on anyone and everyone in their tornado like path. The results are as cataclysmic today as they were in 1976. Listen to the songs. "No More War" is as pertantent now as then. "Mother" is as touching, "Children" as powerful. The point is that this album, as many of Burning Spear's, has that timeless quality that will endear it to future generations.That is the sign of a great album, and this album is just that. GREAT!"

"This beautiful album of roots music draws power from its simplicity - reflecting the earthbound, day-to-day strength and struggle of Jamaica's country people. It evokes sunshine and banana trees, dreads and livity, children and solidarity - and of course the flame that keeps the album burnin', Mr. Winston Rodney AKA Burning Spear has a voice to match his thick, strong, and flowing dreads. Irie I."

"St Anne's Bay son mr. Winston Rodney pays tribute to his homeland in this roots cd, the last colaboration with Jack Ruby. Best of the best from the reggae original prophet."
