The Harder they Come – Revival Song

January 13th, 2008 · 2 Comments


From the Jamaican production, The Harder they Come (1972), starring Jimmy Cliff, here is another song excluded from the official soundtrack. More remarkable for its fashion and song than its plot or acting, the film helped popularize Jamaican music in America. There are several scenes at a revival that feature Jamaican gospel stompers. This one is a real rocker and the song opens with a (literally) bible-thumpingly ecstatic minister exciting the sweaty congregation into song. “Tonight…here is love!” I’d love to find more music of this nature.

    This song just touches my heart, I wish I can hear more of it as I just love it. Can someone post the name of the gospel group who sang this song.
