CD Reviews

Melodious reggae

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Johnny Nash had a slew of hits during the 1970s with his reggae ditties that often made the top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic. They're all still very enjoyable and some, like I Can See Clearly Now, have been much covered by other artists.

My favourites include There Are More Questions Than Answers, Reggae On Broadway, Guava Jelly, Stir It Up and Tears On My Pillow. Oh and Halfway To Paradise with a reggae rhythm is a slab of sonic ecstasy. The melodies are really gripping and most of the songs have a type of hypnotic effect on the listener.

Nash's sound reminds me a bit of Desmond Dekker, although it is more slick and polished and about as far away from roots reggae as you can get, barring Boney M's reggae excursions. Still very original, very catchy and highly enjoyable after all these years.
