Reggae great Cliff – who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 – gets back to his ska, rock-steady and soul roots with a vintage-gear-powered blast of an LP, recorded with a crew of Jamaican-music obsessives led by Rancid's Tim Armstrong. "Tim's a connoisseur of reggae music," Cliff says. "He knows who played what type of instrument, the year, all that. It was really amazing."
