Title - 'Rebirth' (UMe)
Artist - Jimmy Cliff
The legendary Jimmy Cliff is back with his first all new album in over 7 years! Rebirth pairs the reggae superstar with the award-winning producer and punk legend Tim Armstrong, who produced this 13 track album.
After four decades later, Cliff's tenor still soars and kicks off the new album in style with the fun reggae-stylings of 'World Upside Down.' A track that has summer-lovin' written all over it. The stand-alone single 'One More' is next, with the church organ intro'd 'Cry No More' followed by the storytelling of 'Children's Bread.' The harder-edged 'Bang' is along next, which is backed by the passionate plea of The Clash's 'Guns Of Brixton.'
Up next is the funky 'Reggae Music,' which pulstates off the turntable and makes yer feet and hips move and groove instantly! Then comes the SKA-fused, frantic beats of 'Outsider,' which is followed by 'Rebel Rebel' and an excellent cover of 'Ruby Soho' (by American punk rock band Rancid).
This wonderful, simply delicious new album rounds out with the sing-along of 'Blessed Love,' which is followed by the 'Ship Is Sailing' and the final cut, 'One More (Alternate Version).' Invest in this incredible new Jimmy Cliff album this summer - you will not be disappointed, trust me.
