Eric K. (SoulfulStuff)
Reviewed on 7/3/2016...
This CD has received negative reviews, partly for including an
"alternate" version of his biggest USA hit, "I Can See Clearly Now."
I already had that song on another disc, so I didn't mind, and in
fact the "alternate" isn't completely uninteresting. And Nash's follow-up hit
"Stir It Up" is here in its original form, thankfully minus the brief audio dropout that plagued every other CD release of the song I'd had previously.

But the strength of this collection is in
the inclusion of two tracks originally
released on the JAD label in 1968-69 ("Hold Me Tight," "Cupid"), and
other material Nash recorded for Epic in the 1970s AFTER "I Can See
Clearly" and "Stir It Up." "Tears on My Pillow" (not the Little Anthony
oldie) was a UK #1 single in 1975. Other less-impressive oddities are
Nash's version of the Joe South composition "Birds of a Feather" (a minor
hit for the Raiders in 1971) and his take on a nearly-forgotten 1962
Joey Dee hit, "What Kind of Love Is This?"

"First of all, HOW ON EARTH could these lunkheads have replaced the original single version of "I Can See Clearly Now" with this incredibly inferior "alternate version" with new (electronic?) drums and an inferior mix? For that alone this CD is docked two stars. The remaining bulk of this CD consists of unreleased tracks, which, for the most part, should have remained so. Furthermore, calling many of these tunes "reggae" is stretching it.

My advice: Buy the DELUXE version of THE HARDER THEY COME. You'll get the only Johnny Nash tunes you need (including the original, remastered version of "I Can See Clearly Now" - yeah!), as well as the cream of late-60's to early-70's reggae.

Always a favorite

"Reggae, some R&B. A pleasant, upbeat album with Johnny Nash's gorgeous vocals. My fav cut is the Bob Marley written tune Guava Jelly. I bought this when I saw it as cassette, again on CD and I'll probably buy it AGAIN in the next format."
