Classic Reggae documentary clip


COOP spotted this great YouTube clip of Joe Higgs performing a fantastic raw version of his tune There's A Reward. The clip is from "Roots, Rock, Reggae," a 1977 documentary that is a classic for fans of Jamaican music. COOP adds that Life of Contradiction," Joe Higgs's "best LP, long out of print, has just been reissued on CD by Pressure Sounds, and it contains the studio version of "There's A Reward."
