Good selection of tracks, and good sound.
Only downside- cd cover has no history, or lyrics. You can go to YouTube.com to see videos of Johnny singing "I can see clearly now" plus a good cover by Jimmy Cliff in the '80s.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 May 2003
Format: Audio CD
Johnny Nash had a slew of hits during the 1970s with his reggae ditties that often made the top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic. They’re all still very enjoyable and some, like I Can See Clearly Now, have been much covered by other artists. My favourites include There Are More Questions Than Answers, Reggae On Broadway, Guava Jelly, Stir It Up and Tears On My Pillow. Oh and Halfway To Paradise with a reggae rhythm is a slab of sonic ecstasy. The melodies are really gripping and most of the songs have a type of hypnotic effect on the listener. Nash’s sound reminds me a bit of Desmond Dekker, although it is more slick and polished and about as far away from roots reggae as you can get, barring Boney M’s reggae excursions. Still very original, very catchy and highly enjoyable after all these years.

This is a great cd by Johnny Nash, that is around today in many guises on cd, and there is not a bad track on it. It has all his own hit songs on it, but if you like Sam Cooke you we will be amazed at Johnny Nash's covers of "A Wonderful World" and "Cupid". He also covers other songs such as "Dream Lover" "All I have to do is Dream" and the Billy Fury song "Halfway to Paradise" and he performs all of these songs brilliantly with a little reggae like lilt, that are a joy to listen to, he really deserves to be better known, and if you are new to Johnny Nash I really recommend that you give this cd a listen to and you will be pleasantly surprised at just how good he is. This cd is still about in various "Hits" packages and for a modest outlay of a few pounds you cannot go wrong with this purchase, trust me and try this cd out. Yours, Mrs. M Walsh. "Maw".

Johnny Nash was the first non-Jamaican to record in Jamaica, but you wouldn't learn about this rare cross-over distinction (or much else) from the bare 2-page liner note. Still, it's a very low-price CD and all the big hits (made from 1968 to 1975) are here: 'Hold me tight', 'I can see clearly now', 'Tears on my pillow'. In 1968, savvy West Indians were rightly raving about a new Rock Steady (as Reggae was then called) version of 'Cupid' months before it was released in the UK the following year. His 1973 version of Wonderful World is close to definitive. This guy sings Sam Cooke better than Sam Cooke, and that's saying something. You want soft-rock versions of three Bob Marley classics, they're here. Try 'Stir it up'. By 1977 he was scraping the barrel a bit with a reggae 'All I have to do is dream', but otherwise this is a great collection from an under-recognised singer.
