This latest share is a smoldering set by reggae legend Jimmy Cliff. He is supported here by The Roots Radics and guitar virtuoso Ernest Ranglin, giving his sound an edgier and slightly darker feel than his studio work of the time. Cliff and the group lock in on the first beat of the opening song and keep the ferocious grooves going through the sublime triple closing sequence of songs from ‘The Harder They Come.” This gem was originally broadcast on WXRT-FM in Chicago and was recently re-aired in HD-FM.
