007 Shanty Town – Desmond Dekker & The Aces


Man this is a classic record right here, 007 Shanty Town by Desmond Dekker & The Aces.  This is some serious old school reggae right here from 1967, the song later appeared in the 1972 film The Harder They Come starring fellow reggae icon Jimmy Cliff.  By the way, I’ll be in Negril Jamaica this time tomorrow, catch ya’ll in a week, Peace!007 Shanty Town – Desmond Dekker & The Aces


John Crow – Jimmy Cliff

       I’ve always been a big Jimmy Cliff fan, with that said cinemax has been showing the classic 1990 Segal film “Marked for Death” quite a bit lately and each time I catch it, I damn sure watch it.  Anyway in the scene where Segal is at the club in Kingston, Jimmy Cliff is performing the song “John Crow” enjoy the classic below. 

Johnny Too Bad – The Slickers

Johnny Too Bad by the Slickers appears on the soundtrack for the classic Jamaican film The Harder they Come which stars reggae icon Jimmy Cliff.  The song is about a young rudeboy named Johnny and the boy is BAD, he walks around with a wratchett (pistol) robbing people, looting and shooting off his gun. (much like Jimmy in the film)  Anyway peep the song
