Junior Murvin

Junior Murvin (born Murvin Smith Jr. in Port Antonio, circa 1949) is a Jamaican reggae artist. He is best known for the classic single "Police and Thieves", produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry in 1976. Murvin's soaring voice and the infectious rhythm made "Police and Thieves" into an international hit during the summer of 1976. The song was so influential that it was recorded by the punk rock pioneers The Clash on their debut album the following year.

The Centurians

"When Del-Fi Records released the one and only album by The Centurians, they mistakenly gave it the exact same cover and catalog number as the Surfers' Pajama Party that is shown on your site... Needless to say, it was nearly impossible for anyone to order the Centurians album and they soon met the fate of so many other West Coast surf-rock bands (that is, until Quentin Tarantino and John Waters pulled tracks from the album for the films Pulp Fiction and Pink Flamingos, respectively.)"
