Police In Helicopter

The heavy sound of Rub-A-Dub & early Dancehall ruled the nation in the early 80s and Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes & The Roots Radics band lead the charge. John Holt had had great success in Reggae’s previous two decades including a top ten pop hit with ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’, so ‘Police In Helicopter’ was a marked change in direction for this legendary artist. Now, even if you only have a passing interest in Reggae music you will have no doubt heard the title track on this LP, it’s been sampled in countless Jungle & Hip-Hop tracks over the years and is a certified Roots Reggae anthem that is played on a plethora of Soundsystems around the world on heavy rotation to this day. The album is full to the brim with conscious Rasta lyrics plus cool & deadly Lovers style, all backed by the ever crucial Roots Radics who create such an evocative sound that epitomised the early Dancehall era.
