AllMusic Review by

BREATHING FIRE is an essential live document of a sprawling roots reggae festival that features some of the island's legendary performers, most notably Rita Marley, Toots Hibbert, and Jimmy Cliff turning in incendiary versions of some of their best known songs. The album also features a handful of surprisingly rewarding contributions from non-Jamaican Artists like Carlos Santana, Grace Jones, and especially Chrissie Hynde, who turns in a particularly memorable version of the classic “Waiting In Vain.”
