Did a cover of Arthurs cover of Many Rivers to Cross:

Hes seeming to play it in a higher key than the original. I've never heard the Jimmy Cliff original, does anyone think Arthur does a good version of this song from the Arthur Lee album?

I mean

I'm playing with a capo on the 6th. I'm not familiar with the Cliff version, but the version on Arthur Lee (1980- Rhino Records) (come to Rhino Records!)
is probably in a different key

KD: Arthur does a pretty good version, but the original on
Jimmy Cliff's "Harder They Come" movie soundtrack is an absolute
classic.

Jimmy's finally get his due now too. He's up there with Bob Marley
IMHO as far as reggae greats. He'd sort of been shunted aside
due to the fact that he's not a Rasta - he's Muslim apparently.
