Junior Murvin – Police and Thieves

Originally released to widespread acclaim in the spring of 1977, the Police And Thieves album has since become regarded as one of the finest and most important Reggae collections of all-time. Recorded at Lee “Scratch” Perry’s famed Black Ark studio in Kingston at a time when both singer and producer were at the peak of their creative powers, the LP caught the mood of the times, its themes of civil unrest and social injustice striking a chord on both sides of the Atlantic. Its significance in the history of Jamaican music is reflected in this deluxe edition, on which 21 pertinent vocal, Dub and instrumental Black Ark recordings from the period augment the original album’s 10 tracks.
