Burning Spear's first album's alternative version?

Postby pampasjudas » Wed Oct 23, 2013 1:34 pm

hello,

an info request to you all, if possible...
i recently bought a version of Burning Spear's first album (on vinyl) that is pretty different from the standard and well known one.
it may well be a bootleg (it doesn't look very legit indeed), but the sound is pretty nice and many of the tracks feature subtle effects, nice little touches of dub, for instance at the end of "Ethiopians".
the sleeve is kind of a "pastiche", featuring mr.Rodney on guitar plus the sun drawing also used in some of the standard Studio One editions.
"He Prayed" doesn't appear on the record, while "Door Peep" is featured twice, in two different versions.

is anybody familiar with this version of the album?
any info about it? i'd be really interested in having some more info about it and about the unusual versions of several of the tracks on it.

thank you!!
