Together for the First
The Revolutionary Film and the Legendary Soundtrack in One Package!
This gritty, groundbreaking film tells the story of Ivan Martin, an aspiring young singer-turned-outlaw, at war with both the law and his ganja
trade rivals. His dream of stardom becomes reality as he rises to the top of the pop
charts and the most-wanted lists.
A long-time entry on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Most Influential Albums, this iconic soundtrack features Reggae pioneers Desmond Dekker, The Slickers, Toots and the Maytals, Scotty, The Melodians, and Jimmy Cliff, performing songs such as "Many Rivers to Cross", "Pressure Drop", "Johnny Too Bad", and "The Harder They Come", all of which have become standards, not only of the Reggae genre, but of pop music.
