With the tragic murder of Hugh Mundell, who was shot and killed while sitting in a car with Junior Reid, reggae lost one of its most promising young performers. Mundell’s 1978 debut album, Africa Must Be Free By 1983, produced by Augustus Pablo, in Jamaica remains a classic roots reggae recording. Mundell’s singing style and soothing voice will lull you into tranquility if you let it. 

Mundell, the son of a prominent Jamaican lawyer, was still a teenager when he teamed with influential producer Joe Gibbs to record a still-unreleased single, “‘Where Is Natty Dread.” His first break came when he was hired as a DJ for Augustus Pablo’s Rockers sound system. His debut single, “Africa Must Be Free by 1983”, produced by Augustus Pablo, was released in early 1978. Mundell also recorded several 12” singles as Jah Levi

Mundell continued recording with Pablo. The albums Time & Place and Blackman’s Foundation followed shortly after, and then a few tracks for Prince Jammy were gathered together along with some of Lacksley Castell’s, put on an album and called Jah Fire. 

Beginning in 1979, Mundell took over the production of his own recordings. He released his Mundell album on Greensleeves in 1982. He also produced the debut album, Speak the Truth, by “Little” Junior Reid, on Pablo’s label, Rockers.
