Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA – Heartbeat Records has released
Creation Rebel, which includes the earliest
recordings from Grammy award-winner
Burning Spear. It contains music recorded as
early as 1969 at the renowned Studio One label, considered by many to be the
Jamaican equivalent of Motown. Produced by legendary Studio One owner and
founder, Clement S. Dodd, Creation Rebel contains some of the earliest examples
of Jamaican roots reggae music which influenced
Culture, and many
other young artists who became international roots reggae stars. Included are original Jamaican singles with improved sound quality (such as
“Rocking Time”), rare stereo mixes, and other previously unreleased material.
This monumental set is Heartbeat’s first Studio One release since the passing of
Clement S. Dodd on May 4, 2004.
