I remember very well how deeply I was impressed hearing Police
and Thieves for the first time as a youngster. In those days I had
no idea that Lee Perry was the sourcerer and wizard behind it.
This is another timeless record produced by the great Lee Scratch
Perry. A must have for every self respecting reggae collector ..
Ik weet nog goed hoe diep ik onder de indruk was toen als jon-
geling Police and Thieves voor de eerste keer hoorde. Ik had toen
nog geen flauw benul dat tovenaar erachter Lee Perry was. Dit
is nog zo’n tijdloze plaat die niet mag ontbreken in de collectie
van elke zichzelf respecterende reggae vezamelaar ..

Police and thieves in the streets, oh yeah
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition
These lyrics have rung true since 1976, when will the time come when a person will hear them and think, what does this mean, Fighting the Nation, b ut they are the police, I just dont understand.
Soon come, Soon come?
