Nicky Thomas is one of my favourite Black British Reggae singers. His songs are so emotionally charged I can feel them hitting my chest like a pendulum. I always imagine his lyrics dripping down his face like sweat. When it comes to “feeling” a song, Nicky is in a class of his own. Who comes close? Maybe Toots of the Maytals or Jimmy Cliff singing ‘Many Rivers To Cross?”. Just maybe because Nicky’s voice can literally set your body on fire!
Nicky Thomas – Is it Because I’m Black? ❤️❤️
What about Soul. Maybe Otis?
Otis Redding – These Arms of Mine. Very close but…
Percy Sledge – When a Man Loves a Woman ❤️
In Rock, Joe Cocker does well…Sends down the shivers
Joe Cocker – A Little Help From My Friends ❤️
One of my best crooners but does he ever sweat?
Barry White and Pavarotti – My First, My Last, My Everything ❤️
but it’s still Nicky Thomas for me
