Reggae Covers : Nicky Thomas – If I Had A Hammer (Pete Seeger & Lee Hays)

Posted on Updated on

Jamaican vocalist Nicky Thomas –who at times sounds like he’s skanking so much in studio his mouth  moves away from the mic– does a horn-flavored cover of Pete Seeger & Lee Hays‘ 1949 progressive anthem. The crooner from Fruitful Vale, Portland, Jamaica released this version in 1970 on the Joe Gibbs label.

If I had a hammer,
I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening,
All over this land
