Burning Spear – Play Jerry

24 Jul

Burning Spear is as good as it gets when it comes to roots reggae. He has been making reggae music since 1969 and has become quite the legend for his music and Rastafari messages. Bob Marley actually helped him get his music career started and had a big influence on him.

The tune I have here, “Play Jerry”, was written in honor of Jerry Garcia from the Grateful Dead, and has lyrics mentioning the Grateful Dead jamming, and for Jerry to play his guitar. It is taken from their (A)live in Concert 97 album, which is a VERY good one. I suggest to check out the rest of the album if you like some good, live reggae. Enjoy!
