Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Wicked 10" single on Vivian Jones' own "Imperial House" label with two tracks taken from the singer's album "Big Leaders" as well as its wonderful dub versions. First there's "Big Leaders", a great tune asking the timeless questions of those who govern us in the "New World Order". Vivian Jones is in very good shape and it's truly a joy to hear his first class delivery across a well arranged "live" played riddim track. On the flipside we're treated to "The Gun", a more rootsy piece which features a great angular bassline to go with its timeless sentiments. On this 10" single Vivian Jones once again displays his vocal and lyrical abilities to full effect.
