MANY RIVERS TO CROSS

Jimmy Cliff first wrote and recorded this classic in 1969 and sang it countless times throughout his career.  For me, this version, that he performed live on Jools Holland in 2012, 43 years later, is my favorite. His voice is still clear and strong, but it's the ad libs that start at 2:35 that add new depth and dimension: "love is my foundation, wisdom is my capital, struggle is my motto, truth is my redeemer, sorrow is my companion, love is my foundation." Love, the foundation of all.
