With the emphasis on Michael Prophet's original "Gunman", many versions of this riddim were released. Amongst these version are today's picks. One being the title track from the highly acclaimed "How The West Was Won" by the late Ranking Toyan, and the other from Rub-A-Dub's champion duo Michigan & Smiley with "Jah Army" from the album "Downpression".
The Players responsible for this wicked riddim, are The Legendary Roots Radics band produced by The Late, Legendary Henry "Junjo" Lawes, and mixed by The Legendary Scientist.
Alot of famous tunes from Junjo/Roots Radics/Scientist era are being repressed through the Jah Guidance label. These pressing are very high quality, thick pressing on 7" 45rpm discs. From the mastering, all the way down to the heavy sleeve make these 45s worth the extra dollar per record you will pay.
(If can get your hands on the CD pictured below, pick it up. "Righteous Are The Conqueror" is another Masterpiece featuring Prophet, Junjo, Roots Radics, and Scientist)
My apologies for the low quality photos, but when you come check for me, the only thing official is the tunes!
