Reseña de álbum

In 1984 the under-productive reggae singer Junior Murvin took his honey-toned voice to the studios of Henry "Junjo" Lawes, a producer riding high at the time on the dancehall explosion. Surprisingly, their collaboration, Muggers in the Street, doesn't recast the singer who gave the world "Police and Thieves" and "Roots Train" as a ragga or dancehall king. Instead, it's roots music with special guests Al Campbell and Tony Tuff stopping by for duets. This sounds like a winning proposition but someone forgot to bring the memorable tunes, and Murvin often sounds uncommitted to these mediocre songs.

Murvin wasn't exactly the most prolific reggae star of the late '70s, yet such is the stature of "Police and Thieves" and its accompanying album of the same name that Murvin would still be a legend even if he'd never recorded another note. And, indeed, comparatively few listeners heard much of his sporadic...
