Full Show Friday: Jimmy Cliff Glastonbury 2011

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...

This month we have a theme. As readers of RTBE know, Spring is special for us as Jazzfest is just around the proverbial corner.  So for all of the Full Show Friday's in April we will be spotlighting artists who are playing at this years festival.
To be honest we are completely underwhelmed by this years lineup and I doubt we stick around for any of the headliners except for the closing Sunday, so listening to these shows will do us all better then the mile long cab line at the end of days. 

This week we are getting down with the one the only ...Jimmy Cliff!

We have seen Cliff before and thoroughly enjoyed his show.  We were also blown away that he made an album last year that was better then anything he has done in a long long time. Jimmy and company closes the Congo Square Stage on Friday

This show is 45 minutes of his hits and there really isn't any shortage of them. While the opening is a bit shaky sound wise things improve and by the Yusuf Islam cover we are good to go.  "It's hard to get by, just upon a smile girl".

Enough yapping,great outfit Jimmy, on to the show:
