Here we have a beautiful recording of Jimmy Cliff’s 1st ever performance in Boston. It’s obvious from the get go that this show must have been a blast to have seen in person and that the crowd enjoyed themselves that night. I can only imagine how special it must have been heading out to the Orpheum on a crisp autumn night in 1975 and taking in Jimmy Cliff and his band in their prime. More than a few folks probably headed over to Cambridge after the concert to catch a midnight viewing of ‘The Harder They Come’ which remained a late night, cult staple into the ’90s.
Here’s a review of the concert from The Harvard Crimson just days after. A fun read!
