MICHAEL PROPHET – Righteous Are The Conqueror (Oct. 20, 2009)

Greensleeves Classic Reissue Series second standout title for this month, is an essential for any reggae connoisseur. Michael Prophet’s Greensleeves debut “Righteous Are The Conqueror” was originally released in 1980 alongside another stand out Michael Prophet set “Gunman”. Henry “Junjo” Lawes – one of Jamaica’s biggest producers at the time - produced the album at the legendary Channel One studio, alongside the mighty Roots Radics backing band. This superb reissue has been remastered, and as a bonus includes two exclusive 12” mixes of “Cassandra” and “Help Them Please” ‐ these tracks have never appeared on CD before.
