Reggae great Junior Murvin reportedly died Monday morning at his home in Portland Parish, Jamaica. The falsetto singer born Murvin Junior Smith in 1949 was best known for his 1976 classic "Police and Thieves," recorded by Lee "Scratch" Perry and famously covered by the Clash on their self-titled debut the following year. He released a handful of notable albums and singles over the years — his last being 1998's "Wise Man" — often exploring his country's issues with politics and crime. http://www.spin.com/articles/junior-murvin-dead-reggae-police-thieves-rip/
