Product Description:

Singer/songwriter/producer Johnny Nash's million-seller "I Can See Clearly Now" did more to bring the reggae music sound into the mainstream than any other single record up to that point. To be sure, there were previous reggae hits (Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop," Desmond Dekker & the Aces's 1969 hit "Israelites"), but Nash's buoyant, breezy, optimistic classic proved to be a phenomenal record holding the number one pop position for four weeks and going to number one adult contemporary on Billboard's charts in fall 1972. Houston,TX, native Nash had been recording in Jamaica for some years before having his biggest hit. On the I Can See Clearly Now album, Nash used members of Bob Marley and the Wailers and recorded several Marley songs: "Stir It Up," the follow-up single, "Comma Comma," the smooth "Guava Jelly," and the Nash/Marley co-written ballad, "You Poured Sugar on Me." The tender album track "(It Was) So Nice While It Lasted" received radio play. Other standouts are the punchy horns-flavored "Ooh Baby You've Been Good to Me" and the lullaby-ish ballad "There Are More Questions Than Answers." It's a tribute to its high quality that I Can See Clearly Now was in print almost three decades after its original release. ~ Ed Hogan

Johnny Nash To The Rescue! Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- July, 30, 2017

As a nine year child in 1972, listening to I Can See Clearly Now was a learning experience for me! Not only did the song sell over a million copies and make Johnny Nash a star but it open my eyes and ears to reggae music! Curiously enough, Bob Marley and the Wailers contributed heavily in these excellent recordings by writing and singing background similar to what Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions did for Jerry Butler! Hearing this cd, you get the sense that reggae was on the rise and the song " There are more questions than answers," should have been just as big as "I Can See Clearly Now!" This great cd has been a favorite of mine for over 3 decades and hopefully, it will be your favorite as well!
