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.

In September, 2010, Sean & Miranda invited Colleen & I to come to Ireland to play with Matilda & Alfie, see and shoot The Blazing Horse Festival and Ireland’s Copper Coast. We came, we saw -we were conqured.
The first Blazing Horse, musical performance occured as scheduled, before 98 % of the guests would arrive or did arrive. Elder was the opening act as he had another gig later that day. Poor Elder, he missed the rest of The Midnight Caberet.
I did not expect to be asked to film from stage, yet there I was , with the best seat in the house, that David Curran built. For over 3 decades now, the video camera has give me great entree, or ticket to ride. I edited Elder’s video right away & soon it was on YouTube.
In October in St. Louis, Han Lee saw Elder’s Ireland performance, and started dancing to the music and drawing the music . Han decided to to do a video portrat of himself dancing with Elder playing. I saw the video and decided to remix the 2 videos together.
Han has colloaborated with me through the years and has illustrated much music for many films we have on Youtube under the nom de plume of redkruzer.
I grew up with Mel Squires & Steve Nicholas. We walked to Mann, Beeber and to Overbrook High School. We were a half year ahead of Wilt Chamberlain.
Ira Davis did the broad jump, despite Dippy’s getting all the credit for that sort of thing. Bernie Diamond lived on Diamond St with Bernie Meyers. You may obtain the DVD of the Blazing Horse Festival from Sean, Tim, Dave and assorted others.
So here is the timid Sean Corcoran’s work remixed …
Below are the concept and foundation for my remixing : the heaven reaching Creative Commons Concept:
