Jimmy Cliff-The Harder They Come


Recommended Posts

For a dude who's got thousands of shows, DVD's, CD's, tapes and albums I'd expect a bit more subtle selection. Didn't we all have this album when we were 14? Now the movie's pretty damns good, right up there with 'Countryman' as best Jamaican movie ever (although Dancehall Queen for anyone who's scene it is obviously a classic as is Thirld World Cop - 'back up! back up!'). I really like the scene in The Harder where the a cappela group is outside the gates of the record producer/ studio owner's (obviously a caricature of Sir Coxsone Dodd) singing a little ditty as his car goes through.
