Jamaican Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff starred in a crime movie called "The Harder They Come". He also recorded the title track on the album specifically for the film, but the rest of the tracks on this soundtrack were compiled by the film's director. The result is a mix of reggae, easy listening, and just relaxed, good tunes.  I think the reason it made the list of top albums, aside from the variety of reggae recording artists, is that it helped bring reggae into the United States when it wasn't overly popular. It's a great album to listen to, and an easy album to listen to. I'd like to watch the film now and see how it all ties together.  Check it out. It's not a favourite of mine, but its a good listen! And the title track really is a good one. Track Listing Side One
