Jimmy Cliff - Special (1982) - €10,00

posted by albumsonvinyl

James Chambers OM (born 1 April 1948, known professionally as Jimmy Cliff, is a Jamaican ska and reggae musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and actor.
Along with Bunny Wailer he is one of only two living musicians to hold the Order of Merit, the highest honour that can be granted by the Jamaican government for achievements in the arts and sciences.

Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff was one of the first performers to take the music beyond his native Jamaica.
Another fantastic breezy, joyful light reggae offering from Jimmy Cliff, bringing you the essence of Jamaica, in all its forms.
His voice is higher and sweeter-sounding than Bob Marley's, yet like Marley, Cliff has that fervent, declarative style, righteous but never overbearing. SPECIAL is from 1982, and is a fine sampling of Cliff's brand of easy-going, pop-tinged reggae.
"Treat the Youths Right" and "Roots Radical" are both groove-oriented and topical--the former is a plea for understanding for young people, the latter a declaration of pride in Jamaican roots and culture.
"Keep on Dancing" and "Rub-a-Dub Partner" are bright, summery exhortations to good times and romance.
This is not an album for those seeking the darkly intense "culture" style of reggae--for that, check out Burning Spear and Lee "Scratch" Perry. Cliff takes the reggae form and adds a chorus of soothing yet soulful chorus, flute, fuzzy guitars and electronic keyboards, making for a fine album for those who prefer their reggae light, bouncy, and instantly catchy.
