MICHAEL PROPHET – Gunman (Oct. 20, 2009)

The success of “Righteous Are The Conquerer” led producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes to reassemble the protagonists at Channel One Studios the following year (1981). “Gunman” served as the follow up album, and was an instant classic. Mixed by Scientist, at King Tubby, “Gunman” captured the height of reggae’s golden age and the massive title track became a cornerstone of 80’s reggae. Tracks from this album appeared in the popular video game “Grand Theft Auto”, making these songs relevant to multiple generations of music fans. The release of “Gunman” as a twelve‐inch single gave Michael Prophet his biggest hit and signature tune. Michael went on to cut three more classic “Junjo” produced Greensleeves 12” singles. These tracks are added to this re‐mastered edition. All four 12” single mixes are on this CD for the first time.
