They both did a blacktastic job with the song .Yet i would chose the Jimmy Cliff version.
LOL! Me too!
The Jimmy Cliff version makes me happier lol
I originate …I don’t imitate…. daddy U Roy (originator of Jamaica’s Dj ing)
They are both great, but the Jimmy Cliff version is more uplifting and inspiring.
It isn’t a Sam Cooke song? It’s listed on Itunes as a Sam Cooke song, but it sounds exactly like the Johnny Nash version. Then on Wikipedia it doesn’t even list Sam Cooke as having covered it at all. Hmmm
I think Johnny sung it first.
