    Although Bob Marley's 1981 death left a huge void in reggae music, Burning Spear remained a model of consistency as he continued churning out his solid brand of roots music laced with plenty of references to Jah and Rastafari. By the time Spear (aka Winston Rodney) released 1983's THE FITTEST OF THE FITTEST, he'd already released a string of classic albums in the late '70s and had tried his hand at acting in the cult film ROCKERS.
    As always, Rodney pays tribute here to long-time hero Marcus Garvey ("Old Boy Garvey") along with his visions of returning to the African motherland ("Repatriation," "Vision"). Having used a number of well-known Jamaican session musicians on past albums, (including the Wailers on 1980's HAIL H.I.M.), Spear instead surrounded himself with a crew of unknown players. Regardless of their anonymity, Rodney's eye for talent once again proved infallible as the playing on "2000 Years" and "Bad To Worst" overflowed with bubbling bass lines and vibrant horn arrangements.
