Watch How Dem Fight Outta Street
It is with a heavy heart we at Boomshots bring you today’s Flashback Friday tune. It seemed only right to honor the passing of one of Dub music’s foundation artistes, none other than Junior Murvin. Murvin’s “Police & Thieves” was perhaps the reggae hit of 1976. It held the number one spot in the British reggae chart for a staggering 13 weeks, remaining in the Top 10 for 23 consecutive weeks. An extraordinary success story which instantly confirmed Junior Murvin as one of reggae’s rising young stars. “Police & Thieves” has since become an accepted classic of reggae, a record which epitomized the increasing political importance of the music.
