Police & Thieves, pt. 5

Junior Murvin – “Bad Weed” (1976)

Here’s Junior Murvin with another song on the “Police & Thieves” riddim. Listen for Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s trademark mumbles in the background–sounds like a ‘Super Ape’ indeed. I think I might like this even better that Junior’s original “Police & Thieves.” Maybe that is sacrilege.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the version of “Police & Thieves” you probably know best.

Check out other versions of “Police & Thieves.”
