A fantastic cinematic feast. If Hollywood were to re-do it, all they'd need to do, is use a computer, to add a few folks, with smart-phones.....

Love the film - saw it 3 nights running (at the Gate cinema, Notting Hill) when it first came out...each visit preceded by a couple of sharpeners in the nearby Hoop (probably drinking Bass Brew 10 or something)

Possibly the one along the high street where my aunt was an usherette (and got us in free). I remember my cousin and I saw 'The Aristocats' there - this would have been 1972 and when Bruce Ruffin's 'Mad About You' was out, as my cuz wouldn't stop raving about it.

A truly amazing film - it caught the time and the build up to that era so well.
It should have made Jimmy into reggae's first superstar but for the machinations of Island Records!!!

Take care, all the very best
