    Stone Love have the only special of The Harder They Come I have ever heard.

    Mighty Crown have the only special of Many Rivers To Cross I have ever heard.

    These are the only two specials he has ever done, rumoured to be voiced at a cost of $20,000 to each soundsystem.

    Imagine having that record in your box.

    It would complete my life.

    this is an EXTREMELY depressing film, but really awesome all the same.

    gave me a movie hangover, where i couldn't focus after for ages as i kept thinking about it, not many films do that.

    I have plenty of different live & recorded versions of his stuff on wax & C.D, but these specials are ridiculous.

    Him singing their names into the track, with a beefed up & re-recorded version of the original riddim.

    Amazing.

    The Stone Love one starts along the lines of:

    "Now you can build your little sound up in the sky, Stone Love get you no matter how hard you try... But as sure as the sun will shine etc etc..."

    The Mighty Crown one is ever so slightly more gangster, all the atmospherics etc from the original on the intro into accapella, in that spine tingling 1st vocal:

    "Many Soundboys to kiiiiiiill... Etc etc."

    I will find some audio & post it.

    Fave foreign films:

    Pusher - gritty Danish underworld dealer biz, is a trilogy but 1st is best, deffo worth seeking out, directed by Nicholas Winding Refn (who recently did Bronson, which is alright but not great).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6m9B-xk3sk

    La Haine (French youts on an estate affected by the riots and Police aggro)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy5TaO6qTBU

    Ong Bak (sick Thai boxing action movie with amazing 'no cgi or special effects' fight / stunt scenes)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAYUv9wjV48

    JCVD (newish and quite weird film with Van Damme playing himself in normal life, gets mixed up in bank robbery and gets very introspective, surprisingly good film, not at all like his usual action stuff)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z_6UfkQ-c0


    Ain't seen too many South American ones, but this is pretty good...

    Y Tu Mama También (2001) (Brazilian? teen road movie)
