Burning Spear live from Cocoanut Grove in Santa Cruz on 23rd October 1980

One of the most respected and revered names in reggae and most potent voice of Rastafari, Burning Spear was making a rare appearance on the West Coast to bring his music closer to the people of Santa Cruz, California. The thick grooves and mellow vibes of his latest album Hail H.I.M. meet old friends from Social Living, Man in the Hills, Dry and Heavy and his seminal 1975 album Marcus Garvey.

Dressed in a grey tracksuit, shaking a set of soulful dreadlocks from side to side, Winston Rodney performs songs of revolution, praise, love and of Jah, broadcast live over non-commercial radio KUSP (88.1 KM) FM.

Klondike proudly presents the entire original recorded broadcast of Burning Spear live from Coconut Grove in Santa Cruz, California on 23rd October 1980.
