Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review
WWW, April 2008 - Junior Murvin's falsetto voice became world-renown in his legendary Lee Perry produced "Police and Thieves" album. This clip captures the singer in 1976 as he performs for UK TV.
Before he burned it down for reasons that have yet to be discovered, Lee Perry's Black Ark Studio was the center of some classic Reggae releases. The sound of the Black Ark was dominated by the Mu-Tron phaser and until this very day inspires contemporary producers to utilize phasers and such in their own releases, too.
Max Romeo's "War Inna Babylon", the Congo's with their "Heart of the Congo's", and of course "Police and Thieves" by Junior Murvin are some classics that came out of the Black Ark Studio.
This video clip was taken from a UK TV program "Top of the Pops" and originally aired back in 1976. It features a young Junior Murvin playbacking his hit before a studio audience and although the sight is not really sensational, the historical value should be considered self-evident.
Watching Is A Must!
