Review #174: The Harder They Come, Jimmy Cliff & Various Artists

#174: The Harder They Come, Jimmy Cliff & Various Artists

We’ve already briefly touched on this album in Review #48, Legend by Bob Marley & the Wailers. This is the soundtrack to the 1972 movie of the same name, which starred Jimmy Cliff as Ivanhoe Martin. It’s all about how this guy seeks freedom through music but (spoiler) gets shot.
