AND ABOUT TIME:

Jimmy Cliff, 'Rebirth' (Steve Morse, 7/17/12, GLOBE)
  
Credit the Clash's Joe Strummer for getting this album in motion. Joe told reggae pioneer Jimmy Cliff that he should one day work with Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong, and the result is a refreshing return to form. Armstrong loved Cliff's early work, back to the heyday of "The Harder They Come" soundtrack, so he and Cliff set out with vintage studio gear (including the organ from the soundtrack sessions) to create "Rebirth," arguably Cliff's best work since then.
