MY husband loved Burning Spear. R.I,P, ABDOULAYE S.1960-2011. We were together in 2003 at one of their concerts. Great memories...

I am a metalhead. But I love that. No one can hate reggae, it's impossible.

That groove ! Pure gold ! i was at this show and i can tell you guys, one of the best reggae concert of my life . Perfect rythmic session, perfect guitars lead and skank, a sweet bass, a brilliant and tight horns section and winston rodney touchin' the sky, inviting the public in a wonderfull trance. I miss these days ...
