I'd rather be a free man in my grave than living as a puppet or a slave.   3

Hi all, we hope you're having a great weekend! Our latest post looks at the classic Jamaican film The Harder They Come, and explores the effect it had on reggae music as well as it's killer soundtrack. We hope you enjoy! http://www.musicvideosdeconstructed.com/2015/05/23/the-harder-they-come-how-one-film-helped-reggae-to-rise-up/   2

Jimmy Cliff performs his classic on another episode of Guitar Center Sessions. The movie he is talking about before playing is the sleeper hit of 1972 with the same title. It's a great bit of #cheese that may seem dated to some but is well worth the time for Blaxploitation flick fans like myself. trailer http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi4136872729/?ref_=tt_ov_vi and Roger Ebert's review http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-harder-they-come-1973 Ebert's friend Roger Corman released this. And check out the Willie Nelson's cover if you want https://youtu.be/EYZ-H9xJc6g p.s. Goodbye Christopher Lee, it sure was nice knowing you. What a great career on the screen and recording studio https://youtu.be/qiebU3YoU-Y   5
