Editorial Reviews

2010 two CD compilation, the most comprehensive collection to date of Cliff's early work. This double disc release is the first time his Trojan and Island repertoire has been compiled together. Quite simply, Jimmy Cliff is a legend. The Grammy winning singer/songwriter-come-actor made his recording debut as a teenager almost five decades ago, when he cut the first in a series of best selling Ska titles in his native Jamaica. This collection draws together the best of Jimmy Cliff's work cut in the years immediately before and after his move to Britain. Included are a slew of Ska, Soul, Pop and Reggae sides, including all his UK and US hits from the period, along with a number of sides that make their CD debut, most notably the previously unissued 'A Little Bit of Soap'. The net result is the most comprehensive collection to date of the versatile singer's early, and arguably best, recordings.

This would be for completists. It does document Jimmy through his earliest rock-steady recordings up through his classic work, including The Harder They Come. No cheese here. It's a very interesting trip through "proto-Jimmy" on disc 1 and then "classic Jimmy" on disc 2. 12 tracks on disc 2 are not duplicated on Ultimate Collection or Harder They Come (Deluxe 2-disc version). Disc 1 is basically "archival."

However, the collection is a slap-together job with no attempt to remaster. Many tracks are taken from LPs or what sounds like radio play. A little more than half the tracks are mono. When comparing, say, Bongo Man (mono) to the (stereo) version on The Power and The Glory, the latter sounds startlingly good and this one equally bad. Similarly, all the tracks that appear on The Ultimate Collection or The Harder They Come (remastered version) are so much better on those discs. If you just want some Jimmy to supplement your _Rebirth_, go for either of the discs just mentioned.

I also purchased _We Are All One_, which as a reviewer noted concentrates on his 80s work. Mostly cheesy, really, so I can't recommend that one, either, for totally different reasons. If you like the music on that one, you probably won't like it on this one, and vice-versa. I just got it for a couple of tracks.

What needs to happen in the flush of Rebirth's success is a reissue of the back catalog or a box set! I used to own _Images_ (also called _Save Our Planet Earth_) when it came out, but sold it because I was allergic to 80s synthesizers. I miss it now, though, because the songs were fun and most tracks were actually very nice. Power and the Glory is also a great album.

This collection is great. The songs are diverse and classic. Perfect album to put on while hanging out by the pool or the beach.
