iTunes Review

In Concert: The Best of Jimmy Cliff is somewhat misleadingly titled; the album is not a compilation but rather documents a single 1975 concert. But over the decades it has rightfully become the centerpiece of Cliff’s discography and as instantly familiar as any more traditionally assembled “best of.” On In Concert his voice takes center stage, particularly on his solemn reading of “Many Rivers to Cross.” Cliff takes the song at a deliberate, slow stepping tempo redolent of its traditional gospel arrangement, before guitarist extraordinaire Ernest Ranglin takes over, turning the song into an epic meditation on rhythmic dynamics. The band that Cliff assembled for this performance included many of Jamaica’s finest instrumentalists, and it is truly a wonder to hear the near supernatural chemistry that exists between Cliff and these musicians as they respond to his every spontaneous burst of sermonizing or improvised inflection. In Concert is surely one of the finest live reggae albums ever recorded and it stands as the unquestioned high point of Jimmy Cliff’s career.

jimmy cliff (Live)

I believe that this is one of the greatest live albums, and the review given on the previous page really sharpens the specifics of what make this album so special, terrific performance by the band,particularly mr ranglin, but the vocals seem to really win you over, absolutely fabulous singing.

Classic Cliff

Always been one of the best Cliff albums. It's only downfall is that it was produced by Andrew Loog Oldham, who manages to over produce live material (like he did with the Stones "Got Live if You Want It." Too much over-dubbed crowd noise. But, the songs here are great.

In Concert: Best of Jimmy Cliff

It's one of the music industry's great ironies that today, outside of reggae circles, Jimmy Cliff is perhaps better known for his film appearances than his music. Even after a string of hits, the singer never quite managed to break into the mainstream, although he seemed poised for international stardom during the late '60s/early '70s. The singer was born in St. James, Jamaica, on April 1, 1948, with the less prosaic name James Chambers. His talent was evident from childhood, and he began his career...
