The Harder They Come is the soundtrack album to the iconic 1972 film of the same name. The album features a compilation of reggae music released in Jamaica from 1967 through 1972. Reggae legend, featured DeLuna Fest 2012 artist, and star of the film, Jimmy Cliff performs the gut wrenching title track. In addition to Cliff, the album features other artists including The Melodians, The Slickers, DJ Scotty, Desmond Dekker, and Toots and the Maytals. This epic album is credited as a forerunner in popularizing reggae music in the United States and bringing the genre out of Jamaica and into mainstream music.
