CD Album

The arrival of Roots Reggae in the mid-1970s propelled onto the international stage a small and select group of Jamaican acts that became synonymous with the genre - and of these few proved more popular or influential than Winston Rodney aka Burning Spear.

By the late seventies, Rodney had become a powerful and influential force on the Reggae scene, with his worldwide success supplying the funds necessary to the launch of his own Jamaican music label for which he produced he magnificent ‘Marcus Children’ album in 1978.

Released by Island in the UK as ‘Social Living’, the LP was promptly acclaimed as a Roots masterpiece, the LP has stood the test of time and today rightly ranks among the greatest Reggae collections of the era. Soon after its original release, Rodney issued ‘Dub Living’, a companion volume comprising sublime Dub cuts of all the tracks featured on ‘Social Living’.

Now, for the very first time, both of these essential LPs are brought together on a single disc, allowing fans the opportunity at last to experience the two albums in their entirety in one sitting.
