Description

CLASSIC 1972 soundtrack that introduced Reggae to the world with Toots & the Maytals, Desmond Decker & more.
Jamaican filmmaker Perry Henzell made reggae an integral player in The Harder They Come, his gritty 1973 saga of a renegade Kingston singer who becomes a modern Robin Hood, casting one of the style’s earliest stars, Jimmy Cliff, in the lead, and filling this soundtrack–here presented in a remastered version–with classics from Toots & the Maytals (“Pressure Drop”, “Sweet and Dandy”), Desmond Dekker (“Shanty Town”), the Melodians (“Rivers of Babylon”), and the Slickers (“Johnny Too Bad”). Cliff himself gets pole position, however, getting in the first (“You Can Get It If You Really Want”) and last (“The Harder They Come”) words in this first-rate reggae primer, which also features Cliff’s enduring “Many Rivers to Cross”. —Sam Sutherland
