Trojan Records has announced that it will release Harder Road To Travel, a two-CD retrospective of the Jimmy Cliff’s work from 1960 to 1972.

Disc one, titled King Of Kings, contains ska songs like Hurricane Hatty which was produced by Leslie Kong, the Chinese-Jamaican businessman who recorded Judge Not, the first song done by a singer from St Ann named Bob Marley.

The second disc, titled Wonderful World, Beautiful People, hears songs that helped make Cliff one of reggae’s first superstars.
