April 1

I'm feeling low tide, so it feels good to hear reggae icon Jimmy Cliff. He's another 2010 inductee in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame; if you want to know why, check out the movie "The Harder They Come". Or just check out the soundtrack. Need another reason? Find Cliff's song "Vietnam", which Bob Dylan called the best protest song that he had ever heard.
As for me, today calls for "Many Rivers to Cross", one of his most covered compositions, although nobody sings it better than him.
Here's a performance, with Jools Holland on piano.
