Police & Thieves is a Roots Reggae classic by Junior Murvin originally released in 1977 which was produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry (who also wrote or co-wrote many of the songs) at his legendary Black Ark Studios with The Upsetters. The title song was memorably covered by The Clash in a very different arrangement than Murvin's. Perry's imaginative and groundbreaking production surrounded Junior's falsetto vocals and the musicians in a dense, echo heavy, spaced out sound to create one of the great songs, and albums, of the roots era. Record stampers produced by Record Technology, Inc. Camarillo California, USA. This 4 Men With Beards 7001 is a new color version of the original Aprll 2018 release FMN 700 (UPC:646315170016) That one has been sold out for over a year.
