Hey Now My Bro's and Sister's

I have been looking high and low for any and all recordings of JGB playing
Johnny To Bad it a Jimmy Cliff song played only 5 times by JGB late 1994 and 1995
anyone can help me out I need to gear this version, I always thought what a great tune that was
I would love to get any or all of these recordings most from the Warfield 1 is from Reno.

Thanks in advance
I would be so so so GRATEFUL!!!

All the shows with Johnny Too Bad seem to be up on the Sugar Megs site. As always they sound great.

Just a quick clarification note: Johnny Too Bad is by The Slickers, not Jimmy Cliff. The song was on The Harder They Come soundtrack, which starred Cliff, but he didn't write/perform the song in case anyone is looking to locate the original. That is a phenomenal soundtrack though. Highly recommended!

I found them on Sugar Megs this afternoon, the 4/21/95 is the best recording of that song.
I remember my Dad and Uncle Steve listening to Marley Cliff and I recall alot of Kaya
but Johnny to bad was a favorite of us kids...We would drive to Wyoming to Uncle Steve's cabin
I always thought it was Jimmy Cliff sang Johnny To Bad..

Where u going w/that ratchet in your waist?

Wish I had some crispy soundboard recordings of these 5 shows? Ah well a little is better then none!
