Info

Junior Murvin (born Murvin Junior Smith, circa 1949, Port Antonio, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae artist. He is best known for the classic single "Police and Thieves", produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry in 1976. Murvin's soaring voice and the infectious rhythm made "Police and Thieves" into an international hit during the summer of that year. The song was so influential, that it was recorded by the punk rock pioneers The Clash, on their debut album the following year. Australian musician Paul Kelly, makes a reference to Murvin in his Christmas song, "How To Make Gravy". Murvin's most recent recording was a single entitled "Wise Man", released on the London-based Dubwise record label in 1998.
