Sonny’s Lettah

Probably the best known of LKJ’s poems. One I remember skinhead mates reciting perfectly.
The single came out on 5th October 1979 and was produced by Dennis Bovell, the dub is tasty too.
The poem was one known by most young people who were coming into conflict with the police. In the late ’70s that was a lot of people.
