Winston Rodney OD (born 1 March 1945), better known by the stage name Burning Spear, is a Jamaican roots reggae vocalist and musician. Burning Spear is a Rastafarian and one of the most influential and long-standing roots artists to emerge from the 1970s. Winston Rodney was born in Saint Ann's Bay, Saint Ann, Jamaica. As a young man he listened to the R&B, soul and jazz music transmitted by the US radio stations whose broadcasts reached Jamaica.

Written-By – W. Rodney. Written-By – W. Dry & Heavy ‎(LP, Album).

With Dry & Heavy (1977), Burning Spear consisted only of Rodney, who also jettisoned producer Laurence "Jack Ruby" Lindo and handled the board himself. This time, he went in for remakes in a big way - seven of the nine songs date from Studio One, with only the title song, another recollection of childhood, and the anti-violence statement "Throw Down Your Arms" newly written. The titles, however, have usually been changed

Dry & Heavy is an album by reggae artist Burning Spear. It was released in 1977 on Island Records. Throw Down Your Arms" - 4:05. Dry & Heavy" - 3:29. Black Disciples" - 4:23. Shout It Out" - 3:27. All songs written by W. Rodney except, 2 (or) and 3 (Rodney/Fullwood). All songs published by Burning Spear Publishing except 2, 8 and 9 (Island Music In.

Dry & Heavy was originally released in 1977, a watershed time for reggae music. From a year chock-full of classics, Winston "Burning Spear" Rodney's offering ranks among the top. The majority of the songs featured here are remakes from Spear's Studio One days, but the originals have been improved upon with a fuller sound, courtesy of a superior gathering of artists, including Wailers band members Earl "Wire" Lindo, Carlton Barret, and Earl "Chinna" Smith. Don Taylor, who at the time managed both Spear and Bob Marley, is listed as executive producer. The album exists as a perfect entity. First thing you hear after the drums drop in is that distinctive voice-pure and unadorned, calling to you, seemingly, from atop a cliff, stretching out to the ocean.
