Today's song is a sweet ballad. Nash was enormeously popular back home in Suriname. During the whole of the 60's you could hear his songs on the several radio stations daily. They loved his sweet style and voice.
I love music, mostly Ballads be it US, Caribbean and all parts of the World. My second love is South American and Caribbean dance music. I'm not a technical listener but an emotional one. The voices, backing vocals, band, lyrics must touch me for me to like it. So don't expect me to dwell into technical details of songs, if it's on this blog, it's there because it touched me in one way or an other.
