Jimmy Cliff is one of those artists that can lift the heart out of despair. Sometime ago I posted the other performance from Jimmy Cliff’s appearance on Jools Holland. Both performances are simply outstanding. This song is from his front to back killer Rebirth. This is a modern record that can stand with the all-time greats in this or any genre. If you don’t have it, get it.
One of the best albums in recent years is Jimmy Cliff’s Rebirth. It is the full package with an artist at the top of their game. It is political, emotional, soulful, and absolutely fearless. The production by Tim Armstrong is note perfect. Somehow Jimmy Cliff can sing as powerfully now as he ever did. This live performance on Jools Holland is stunning. If you get the chance also check out the YouTube clip of him performing One More from this same performance in 2012.
