Nostro Dec 2014, a year since his passing (aged 67) & this release was the first version of this classic roots reggae track; 2 years later it was re-recorded (also produced by Derrick Harriot) & again in '76 produced by Lee Perry on his most successful album 'Police & Thieves'. Famed for his beautiful falsetto voice, this is a classic. Favorite track: Rescue The Children.


Recorded in 1974, this is Junior Murvin's first Roots tune ever. Having always been sought after by collectors, this song is possibly the ultimate classic. This is a completely different take from the one Junior Murvin recorded for Lee Perry in 1977 for the “Police and Thieves” LP distributed by Island. Undoubtedly this is one of Murvin’s best tunes, which should be in every collector’s record box.
