Imagination man, LEEE JOHN made a comeback of sorts last year with his ‘Retropia’ album. He told us that the set was going to be his swan song… the big goodbye! However it’s not turned out quite that way.
Since the release Mr. John has enjoyed high level exposure both on TV and in the music press and a couple of singles from the album have kept Leee right out there. Now he’s released a third single from the album – his version of the classic 1977 Junior Murvin/Lee Scratch Perry tune ‘Police And Thieves’. Produced by Dennis Bovell, Leee says that despite the passage of time, the message of the song is still hugely relevant.
As ever, the single comes in a welter of mixes and as ever you pays your money etc…. On a tangent, now, if you’ve not checked out ‘Retropia’, then try and grab a listen to the track ‘The Best I Could’ – a beautiful, falsetto-led soul ballad!
