Sounds like a brave song.
67 is no age for someone to die. Sad news. Police And Thieves is the only one of his albums I own. It is a good record. More going on than just the title track.
Carole’s right – he was definitely more than a one-hit wonder but, conversely, what a record that was – the 12″ (now sadly disappeared from my collection) was possibly the coolest thing I owned throughout my childhood. Very sad news.
One of the great reggae voices & the P&T album is an all time classic. Some of the Studio One / Roots Radics stuff is good, but he never again achieved the magic of that 1st album & released relatively little over the rest of his career. A real shame.
Police and Thieves is one of the best reggae albums I’ve ever heard and inspired a lot of great punk bands
