So many great songs, and all everybody (not coming from Suriname) ever talks about when you mention his name are his "reggae songs".

In my humble opinion a greatly underrated singer.
Some of the labels Nash released on are; ABC Paramount, Groove,Epic, MGM, Warner Bros, Argo, Joda, JAD, Cadet.

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.
