Police and thieves in the streets Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition Police and thieves in the streets Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition.

Along with The Heptones' Party Time and Max Romeo's War Ina Babylon, this album is considered part of a Black Ark Lee 'Scratch' Perry-produced "holy trinity". All tracks composed by Junior Murvin and Lee "Scratch" Perry; except where indicated.

Title on front cover & spine: Police & Thieves Title on centre labels: Police And Thieves. On back cover: Recorded at Black Ark Studios Kingston Jamaica Printed in England by Robor Limited. Police & Thieves ‎(LP, Album).

Junior Murvin sings in a fierce and beautiful falsetto, a voice which lends a unique weight to such dark masterpieces as "Lucifer," "Roots Train," and the title track (which was later recorded by the Clash). Perry surrounds Murvin's voice with great washes of echo and reverb and keeps the tempos slow and intense, giving the album an almost Biblical feel. Ignore the goofy album art on some issues - there is nothing lighthearted about any of these songs, nor is there a single wrong note or misplaced effect
