Aka Junior Soul, in 1969.

Biff! That sublime, inimitable falsetto atop a stupendous digital-Tubbys one-away. Self-produced by Junior in 1987 for Ruddock’s Taurus imprint (though original copies are near-mythical).

Aka Junior Soul. Brawny, get-onboard rocksteady, with nyabinghi drumming throughout — including a tasty break. A first sighting of Solomon, from Police And Thieves.

The one-and-only JM denouncing international politrix over an expert, fresh, live-digi rhythm — brittle and spare, but choca with deft touches.

Junior Murvin aka Junior Soul’s first, deadly version of the Upsetter classic is unmissable: inimitable delivery of a great song, on a tough, limber, rootical rhythm with ace trombone and a fine dub.
