JOHNNY NASH - THE VERY BEST OF JOHNNY NASH 1956-1962
Cat. no: JASCD1094
Release Date: 9th October 2020
Long before he became an internationally-renowned 1960s/70s reggae star, Johnny Nash was a 1950s would-be teenage idol, with a string of releases for ABC-Paramount and Warner Bros.
Between 1956-62 he enjoyed sporadic U.S. Pop success with songs like ‘A Very Special Love’, ‘You’re Looking At Me’, ‘Almost In Your Arms’, ‘The Teen Commandments’ (recorded with ABC labelmates Paul Anka and George Hamilton IV), ‘Walk With Faith In Your Heart’, ‘As Time Goes By’, ‘Take A Giant Step’, the Phil Spector written & produced ‘Some Of Your Lovin’’, ‘Don’t Take Away Your Love’, and ‘Ol’ Man River’.
These are all included on this compilation, alongside a number of collectors’ rarities, which presents the very best of Nash’s singles’ releases during this period. This is the first time that this body of work has been thus assembled, and several of these sides have never previously appeared on CD.
