WNRN’s Acoustic Sunrise CD of the month is Jimmy Cliff- Rebirth.

A mix of original songs and a few well-chosen covers, Rebirth doesn’t flip the script as much as play to strengths. When you’ve been in the game as long as Cliff has, there’s little use in attempting to draw him out of his comfort zone. Instead, Armstrong creates an atmosphere for the reggae legend to settle in, get comfortable, and thrive. Recorded live in studio without so much as an overdub in sight, the record harkens back to the spirited Jamaican vibes popularized and largely perfected on albums like The Harder They Come and Another Cycle.
