Quote from: Ruckus on Feb 03, 2011, 12:55 AMHey Walts! What's up with the Mighty Diamonds vid? ;D ;D Couple of Ruffryders cuts intermingled ;D Good stuff.I haven't seriously listened to reggae in quite some time but it's always nice to stick my head in here and vibe on some stuff I've never heard before.In the fall of '98, right about when I started collecting vinyl (that wasn't my dad's), I walked into a local record store and found an original copy of Jimmy Cliff's Unlimited. I was of course familiar with him from The Harder They Come and the soundtrack so I picked it up for $8. To this day, it might be the best $8 I've ever spent. I saw Cliff a couple of times over the last decade and what a cheeseball he has become on stage. He was actually tough to watch. Additionally, I know that Cliff gets a bum rap amongst many reggae heads but this early Cliff, rare, old school album is pure glory :) One of my favorites albums of all time in fact and I'm so glad I found it. Can't even find more than a couple of tracks on youtube.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvTEe-Vi91A#ws)Awesome song Wood! Loving all the reggae tunes in February. Especially when I look outside and there's about 4 to 5 feet of snow on the ground. Any chance of getting the link to the old thread? I know I still have the old forum bookmarked on my computer, but since it's broke (and so am I) I won't be able to pull it up for a while. Then again, I'd love to flood the new thread with all my favorite King Tubby and Scientist songs again ;D ;) [urlScientist - Dance of the Vampires[/url]

I haven't logged on the MMJ forum for several years and I'm excited to find this thread and other reggae fans here! I've been listening to reggae and going to shows since Jim James was about 6 years old. Bless!
