Stir It Up - Johnny Nash
Yeah Johnny Nash a cool black-American dude who arrived in Jamaica in 1968 from the USA and 'picked up' on the local reggae scene in Kingston meeting a young Bob Marley at the sametime. Johnny hit it BIG in the UK with some great 'reggaefied' songs during the early 1970s such as-
I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW
TEARS ON MY PILLOW
THERE ARE MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS
GUAV JELLY (a Bob Marley song)
YOU GOT SOUL
REGGAE ON BOARDWAY (a Bob Marley song)
STIR IT UP (a Bob Marley song)
And Johnny is still with us age 71
I'm not too into reggae, I'm more of a Ska fan, but I do really like The Aggrolites. They're a reggae band signed to Hellcat records.
Mr B posted a Toots & The Maytals song a while ago and I have been listening to them a bit recently
Love Is Gonna Let Me Down
Great stuff Sunny. Personally, I rank Toots right up there with Bob Marley. The compositions find the perfect pitch between Motown and Rock Steady in my opinion.
Beware of low class CD's and downloads...the best source I have found for Toot's material so far (without buying every individual album) has been this one...
There is a very good record shop here in Sydney Mr B which I'm going to source some Toots & The Maytals' music from so I'll look out for Time Tough
This is the Toots cd I have.
LD ... I like The Aggrolites, nice one.
