Kiddus I - Fire Burn / Fire Burn Version

by Dub Store Records



Kiddus I originally recorded 'Fire Burn' in 1973 but the master tape went missing. The song was re-recorded at Tuff Gong in 1978 for his debut album 'Jah Power, Jah Glory' but it remained unreleased. Surprisingly, the track has the same bassline to Bunny Wailer's 'Armagideon' and it is said Bunny adopted it from 'Fire Burn', which was originally recorded in 1973. The most dreadful song amongst Kiddus I's unreleased material and 9 minutes of jazzy performance is just a miracle. The B-side contains a version to the A-side.

DRUMS: Carlton "Santa" Davis, BASS: Leebert "Gibby" Morrison, LEAD GUITAR: Earl "Chinna" Smith, ORGAN: Earl "Wire" Lindo, PIANO: Leslie Butler, CLAVINET: Earl "Wire" Lindo, HORNS: Glen Da Costa.
