Synopsis

Album Description
The Johnny Nash who began his recording career in 1957 is almost a different singer from the Johnny Nash who enjoyed a succession of hits in the '70s. When discovered by Arthur Godfrey and appearing on a number of television broadcasts, it was as a popular music singer; indeed when his recording career was launched it was as a rival to Johnny Mathis. This album was recorded during that first phase. It contains a number of standards, done in the same style Mathis had almost made his own. Whilst not a major success in terms of sales, it does prove that Johnny Nash possessed an exceptional voice and, with the right material, could be an international star. 12 tracks. Hallmark. 2009.
 

CD Reviews

A Great Album of stantards
Joseph Reitano | saylorsburg, Pennsylvania USA | 03/24/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great album--I wish he did more albums of standards . He had such a great voice---a style you will never hear on American Idol. All the new singers today have nasal problems. this is the truth .They all sing thru their nose---John was a natural. One of a kind"
