(Neptune) The stunning thing about Jimmy Cliff, one of the most famous reggae crooners to ever walk the earth, is that he hit the big time 41 years ago (1972) with the cult movie The Harder They Come, and yet today he is not dead or even that old (65). Meaning, Cliff has been singing his hit songs ("Wonderful World, Beautiful People", "Many Rivers to Cross") for a very long time. No sane critic can call Cliff one of the greatest (in terms of talent) singers from that island of many great singers, but he certainly deserves credit for the sheer length of his career. True, he no longer makes new music (or at least new music you run to the store to buy or download from the web), but it's not a bad thing to become a living monument to your own recordings, a museum of yourself and the peaks you achieved in your youth.
