Three Burning Spear Albums Reissued

Three albums by roots reggae elder Burning Spear have been digitally remastered and are set for reissue June 3 via Island/UME, as part of the label’s Reggae Classic Albums series. “Man in the Hills” and “Dry & Heavy” will be combined onto a single CD, while the artist’s definitive “Social Living” album will get a separate presentation complete with two extended-mix bonus tracks. Each of the discs will feature liner notes by reggae historian David Katz.

One of reggae’s brightest stars, Burning Spear broke through in 1975 with the widely acclaimed “Marcus Garvey” (Mango). It was followed by “Man in the Hills” (1976), “Dry & Heavy” (1977), and “Social Living” (1978).
