SUNSPOT RECORDS

Garvey's Ghost is the fourth album by the reggae group Burning Spear, which was one of the seminal vocal trios in reggae. released in 1976 on Island Records, ILPS 9382. Each track is a dub version of its correspondent song on the group's third album, Marcus Garvey. This album was fashioned by Island Record engineers John Burns and Dick Cuthell in their Hammersmith studio. It features prominently the backing musicians, whom Lindo named The Black Disciples band, assembled from members of the session group The Soul Syndicate and Bob Marley's touring band, The Wailers. John Corbett has suggested that "dub" could derive from "duppie," a Jamaican patois word for ghost, as Lee Perry has been quoted stating that dub is "the ghost in me coming out," this connection further illustrated by Winston Rodney having named this album as the ghost of Garvey.On July 27, 2010, this album was remastered and released by Universal's Hip-O Records reissue imprint in tandem with the original Marcus Garvey LP on one compact disc.
