Hugh Mundell

In 1983, the reggae community lost one of its most promising young artists. Mundell was shot and killed at the age of 21 while sitting in a car with known artist Junior Reid. Mundell's 1975 debut album, Africa Must Be Free By 1983, produced by Augustus Pablo, still remains a classic roots reggae album.

If Hugh Mundell had lived past 1983, there is no telling what his legacy would be today. Africa Must Be Free By 1983 is simply one of the most remarkable debuts in reggae history, considering Mundell was only 16 when it was released.

...Rest easy brother
