Joe writes: A while back, I happened to record Jimmy Cliff performing Many Rivers To Cross on TV. It's a great rendition of one of my all-time favourites so I posted it to YouTube.
When I was a teenager, some people came round to my mum's house one Saturday night and I played them Many Rivers To Cross on the gramophone, with that very quiet organ intro then Jimmy's piercing vocal at top volume. My guests back then were not an appreciative audience, but YouTube users are. They seem to find the performance inspirational and I'm inspired by their comments. One day I hope to be involved in a piece of music as good as Many Rivers To Cross.
