Another one of Sherwood’s friends, Prince Far-I, the “Voice of Thunder,” was murdered in front of his home on September 15th, 1983. Also that year, the child prodigy Hugh Mundell, who recorded the album Africa Must Be Free in 1983 at the age of 16, was shot to death in Kingston.

Such a shame. Lacksley Castell passed from illness in 1983 as well, a year after his debut album and three years after appearing on Mundell’s Jah Fire with Augustus Pablo.
