Consumer Guide Album

Jimmy Cliff: Follow My Mind [Reprise, 1975]
Seekers after a reggae triumvirate insist that this album is an improvement, which is stretching the truth--the singing's a shade tougher, the writing's a shade sharper, and there are two relatively striking tracks, both of which detail Cliff's paranoia. Elsewhere he's still a victim of the folkie fallacy, in which to sing rhymed homilies clearly and sincerely is to make good music. C+
