Johnny Nash – “You Got Soul” b/w “Don’t Cry” (MM 586) (1968)

SAM_0385NASH REPORT: YOU ARE POSSESSED OF ‘SOUL’

(Dallas, Texas) — Following an exhaustive trial and nearly two years of research, Johnny Nash has confirmed that you have qualities and characteristics associated with ‘soul’, claiming his observations of the way you walk, talk, move, groove, dance and romance indicated high levels of ‘soul’ presence.

Further stating that your ‘soul’ is ‘good as gold’ and ‘won’t never grow old,’ Nash believes that your ‘soul’ is ‘deep inside’ and that ‘nothin’ in the world can hide [it]’.

Thus far, you have refused to comment on the Nash report, though sources close to you have expressed that, ‘soul is hard to find, so why don’t you come on now and let it shine.’

‘Just let yourself be free, so the whole wide world can see,’ these same sources added.

Editor’s note: Lovely reggae 7″ from the American Nash. Strings don’t detract from the groove.

  1. Picked up the album that featured these at a car boot last year. It’s a great album (if a little – more than a little – short). Prompted me to finally read the Johnny Nash story and his links with Bob Marley. Somehow that had completely passed me by.

  2. JN was waaay ahead of the curve on that one.
