Exciting! Perhaps a new "team member"

Contributors are the life blood of this blog.....granted I have a lot of stuff to share, but there are people round the globe with plenty of more very, very cool stuff to share......this time, a UK resident named Cliff responds to "The Harder They Come" soundtrack, he's a huge reggae guy and has sent some of his favorite reggae stuff for our consumption......I was so impressed I asked him if he would like this to become a semi-regular feature, and I hope he responds in the affirmative, it would off us yet more of both variety and perspective. Anyway, here is what he sent me, I haven't listened to it yet, but tomorrow is gonna be a heavy reggae day.......any of you reggae fans say a kind word and hopefully we can convince Cliff to become a regular member of our team here!
