Saw him on the Jimmy Fallon show when I was home for Christmas performing ' Harder They Come.' He sounded great and the band sounded great. Last time I saw him was at Reggae on the Rocks in 1999 and his band just wasn't carrying it that night.

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm all alone..

Caught him when he played the Mezzanine in SF after the Jimmy Fallon show. He is an amazing talent, his voice is solid and his stage presence csptivating. Trust me.

The audio is TERRIBLE in this clip... Please forgive me! (but I happen to know that NoMo was in attendance at this show......)

Big news!

Jimmy's always a treat, but I am hoping for more of "Give the People What They Want", and less of "Hanging Fire". Come on Jimmy: "Treat the Youths (and old farts) Right"!

Some of that old school ska would be fun too. smiling smiley

Often you may wish for one facet of a performer's music, one era or period; I could put together a set list for JC I'd wish to see, but it is understandable when an artist currently exists someplace in his music that's not the choice you may have chosen.

At any rate, be it the Brazilian flavored sound he's favored the past years, or a walk down his memory lane, I'll be quite ready to hear whatever Mr. Cliff wants to do.

JA_lover and i saw him at the mezzanine, his band was tight, his voice was smooth and he played every song i wanted to hear. Can't wait to see him again!

Love that reggae!

Full energy and doing his thing on stage like hes still a youth!

For those who haven't seen him live: recordings don't do his voice justice. It has a strength, clarity and power when he's singing live that his recorded work just doesn't capture.
Re: Coming to SNWMF 2012: Jimmy Cliff
February 26, 2012 11:56AM
Agreed, Stamina, but I've yet to see him with a band that would justifiably augment his vocal prowess.
Re: Coming to SNWMF 2012: Jimmy Cliff
February 26, 2012 04:31PM
I guess I haven't seen him in awhile Ken, but I've heard him with some fine bands. One time the guitarists were Ernest Ranglin on lead and Chinna Smith's late brother Leonard on rhythm. So what you're saying sort of surprises me.

Looking forward to Mr. Cliff. It's been a while since I've seen him live. The first time I saw Jimmy Cliff he was on tour with Peter Tosh (first time for Tosh also) 1982 @ The Kabuki Theatre in San Francisco. Great double bill. The last time I saw him was with Fela Kuti @ Mississippi Nights 1990 ... also a great double bill. There were many times inbetween those two shows. So now to see him @ SNWMF after 22 years ...irie!

Some of my favorite Jimmy Cliff l/p - cds...
Special
Wonderful World Beautiful People
Follow My Mind
I Am The Living
also The Harder They Come soundtrack

I'm ready for another J.C. super concert ....

Yes, AJ, I remember that show:



I also recall a blind woman who used to attend EVERY reggae show during that era. We put together a string of dates for Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus a few years before that, and she was at every show.

And I would add his album recorded with the Memphis Muscle Shoals "Another Cycle" to my list of favs...

That's great you still have the ticket stub. The price was fair even for back then. Nice.

Jimmy has been playing the SXSW festival for the past three days. I have missed each event but hope to see him tonight. Unfortunately, the Protoje showcase and the free Jimmy Cliff stage overlap. However, knowing Jimmy will be headlining at SNWMF makes me happy especially if I miss him here tonight.
