Crying or Very sad

Go-Jamaica reports that he was suffering from advanced diabetes. Murvin apparently passed away peacefully at home in Port Antonio, Jamaica, early this morning (December 2).

Devastating news Crying or Very sad

Pushed, I'd name Murvin's Police & Thieves as my all time favourite track Cool

If correct, I was looking forward to him performing the Police & Thieves album in full at the Jazz Cafe in Camden as part of the LISF next year.

Thanks for the memories Junior. R.I.P.

Sad

Probably one of the last decent Reggae tunes of the 1970's Crying or Very sad I like The Clash cover, but it doesn't have the soulfulness of the original.

There is going to come a time in the very near future when none of that generation of reggae stars will be alive.
