Nicky Thomas - The Best Of Nicky Thomas - Trojan - CD

One of the best vocalists of the late sixties early seventies was Nicky Thomas - his voice was so strong and powerful and soulful it took him into the Pop Charts. That was a blessing and a curse because instead of concentrating on what took him into the charts great songs sung in that big powerful soul style - he was pushed into singing pop songs some of them are here - they could have been left off this CD - and should have been. Although it could be argued that - those kind of songs were part of Nicky history. On the other hand tunes like 'Love Of The Common People', 'Have A Little Faith', and 'God Bless The Children' were massive hits they made Nicky into Pop Chart success and they are great songs. Others like 'Run Nigel Run' were big hits in Jamaica. While songs likes 'Red Eye', 'Mama's Song' and 'Lonely Feeling' are just fantastic songs sung be a great singer.
