This is kind of late but on Saturday August 14, I went to see the horse races at Del Mar Race Track and was fortunate enough to see Jimmy Cliff perform after the races for the Reggae Fest they held that night at the Fairgrounds. I recorded the video above, I know not the best quality, that’s why I put another video below that gives you a better idea of Jimmy Cliff.
Jimmy Cliff is currently the only living musician to receive the Order of Merit, the highest honor granted by the Jamaican government for achievement in the arts and sciences, and Cliff was one of five inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
He performed all of his classic songs including “I Can See Clearly Now”, “The Harder They Come” and “You Can Get It If You Really Want” as well as some of his other hits. I enjoyed most of his music very that day and filmed most of his songs but uploaded my favorite by him.
Below enjoy the official music video to “The Harder They Come” one of my other favorites by him. Enjoy!
