Jamaica Travelogue… In The ImaginAIRium:
Jimmy Cliff – Many Rivers To Cross
Rekruzer’s 1989 video of the road from Negril to Montego Bay , through Lucia, hit 1,000, 000 You Tube views a few weeks ago. We were further honored by You Tubes subsequent decision to make the video a “Featured Video”. Today, November 11 2010 at 7 18 PM, it had 1,073,764 views. Jimmy Cliff had not yet started his dramatic come back when this video was first put on You Tube. The film was shot on the ocean road, in Red Salvation’s little shop, across from Birchrunville South, now Birchrunville West.
Red Salvation, Maurice Lynch. Negril’s Elder Rasta for decades.
Red: Changing The Vibes
Red Salvation was a close friend of Bob Marley. They would visit each other often. RedKruzer became close with Red in the early 70s. Red shot this particular video of Red in the 80s:
The ImaginAIRium will invite Reds and friends back to demonstrate more what an amazing talent and above all, human being, Red Salvation is. Red’s manner of using the guitar percussion like is unique.
In 2009 RastaRichNegril published his video interview with Red. I quote RastRichNegril’s YouTube 7:05 interview video of Red: “Having brought him some Rasta Heart books from the Author Robert Roskind I spent a few minutes with one of the first Rasta’s in Negril. Red has had some issues with a bad foot and now is confined to bed and wheelchair. He is one of the most wise and intelligent Rastas you will ever meet.
