The spoken portion of this track is the voice of Keith (Joseph) Rickman, a born Jamaican and long time Newfoundlander.
This exerpt was taken from the forth-coming video documentary on Jim, his life and his music currently being realised by his wife, Lillian.

"I was born seven miles from Bob Marley and I knew him from I was a boy. And I grew up listening to Calypso and Mento and when I heard Jim singing, I had goose bumps;
I was totally blown away. Jim has done a wonderful thing for the world: He has brought two cultures together in the most amazing way. Jim is easily one of the most, if not the most, profound and spiritual people I have ever met"
Keith Rickman
