Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff was one of the first performers to take the music beyond his native Jamaica. His voice is higher and sweeter-sounding than Bob Marley's, yet like Marley, Cliff has that fervent, declarative style, righteous but never overbearing. SPECIAL is from 1982, and is a fine sampling of Cliff's brand of easy-going, pop-tinged reggae. "Treat the Youths Right" and "Roots Radical" are both groove-oriented and topical--the former is a plea for understanding for young people, the latter a declaration of pride in Jamaican roots and culture.
