Description

Jimmy Cliff is one of the very best singers to ever emerge from Jamaica. He brandishes a high-powered instrument – a soprano with great range and a plaintive lilt that is capable of a keening emotional intensity and soaring joy. It would make him a star at home and abroad, and garner him many honors. He was awarded Jamaica’s Order of Distinction, then its Order of Merit, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio (the only reggae star other than Bob Marley to achieve this, even though neither of them recorded much that could be considered rock and roll).
