It's Jimmy Cliff's birthday today, so we're looking back to the reggae icon's 2011 Studio A visit for a "Throwback Thursday" FUV Live pick — and sending him added congrats on the news that his album, The Harder They Come, has been added to the National Recording Registry.

Back in November of 2011, Cliff visited FUV with his Sacred Fire EP just out and his full-length album, Rebirth, on the way. So there was a lot of recorded music to talk about with host Rita Houston, but with his acoustic guitar in hand, he also treated us to some live music.

We'll feature those performances on FUV today, and if you want to hear the full Jimmy Cliff session, just head to the FUV Live Vault.
