Jimmy Cliff The KCRW Session on LP
In June of 2012, reggae legend Jimmy Cliff visited Los Angeles’ KCRW for a live acoustic performance of nine songs on the public radio station’s acclaimed program, Morning Becomes Eclectic, hosted by KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley. The recording of the live broadcast, titled The KCRW Session, will now be issued by Universal Music Enterprises.
Broadcast live on June 28, 2012, The KCRW Session features selected songs from Cliff’s acclaimed, Grammy-winning (Best Reggae Album) 2012 album, Rebirth, as well as classics from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s catalog. The KCRW Session includes “Trapped,” Cliff’s cover of The Clash’s “Guns Of Brixton,” “World Upside Down,” “Wonderful World, Beautiful People,” “You Can Get It If You Really Want,” “Children’s Bread,” “Many Rivers To Cross,” “I Can See Clearly Now,” and “One More.” All of the session’s songs were performed by Cliff on guitar and vocal.
“This session is one of my fondest memories from the KCRW studios,” says Bentley. “Jimmy Cliff sat right down with his guitar and gave 110% on every song, and then proved himself a gentleman in thoughtful conversation. We all felt graced by a living legend that day, and we witnessed a truly special performance that I'm proud to say lives on through this recording.”
