Johnny Nash- Hold Me Tight (Jad, 1968)

Another fantastic early LP from the sublimely sweet-voiced Johnny Nash. This one has a sort of a rocksteady/ soul crossover appeal. My favorite tracks are the two songs written by Peter Tosh. Listen up:

Mediafire Download Link: Johnny Nash- Hold Me Tight (Jad, 1968) 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.

*Track 1 had a skip in the vinyl that I did my best to edit out. The result is an extra half-beat that can be easily overlooked. If you're an editing wiz, I'd sure love a perfect version that matches the audio quality of the rest of this record. I guess I just don't have the chops with Garageband. (For the record, "Hold Me Tight" is easily obtained as a single, but I didn't want to tack on a cd-comp version of the song to the beginning of an otherwise nice vinyl rip)
