So many wicked songs to choose, one cover and one original:

His cover of Nanci Wilson's "How Glad I Am", a murderous Cuss Cuss cut

and his original, "No Friends In This Time"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwJO3FoECCo

The first time I saw him was on Christmas Day, 1981 when he co-headlined a show with Errol Scorcher, he mashed the place up and had girls screaming

RIP Michael

EDIT: Can't leave out this one out, he cut this one for Winston Riley in 1986 just before he moved to England. Lyrics and melody!

"Who Control Them"

So many great tunes by Mr. Prophet over the years. I was listening to the Cease Fire lp this evening, and "Chief of Staff" jumped out as just a perfect vocal over a wicked riddim.

So many great ones mentioned already....

The LP 'Blood Stain' --- the two tracks that really stand out (played out loudly last night):

* Give Me The Right

and

* Let It Rain
