Strangely, the songs WARRIOR (by Johnny Clarke) and PROTECT THEM (aka: Jah Jah Guide Them) (by Barry Brown) seems to have surface respectively in 1994 and 2003. I wasn't able to find any original singles or albums for those two songs. The oldest released I found was: 'Truth & Rights, Observer Style’ (Heartbeat, 1994) and 'Rich Man Poor Man' (Moll-Selekta, 2003).
The dates printed inside the Trojan box sets are not always reliable. Here is the result of my research. I don’t claim that there isn’t any mistake, but this is closer to reality:
