I Can See Clearly Now

Peel had a couple of albums by Johnny Nash, which were found when first details of his Record Collection were released after his death, although it is not known from available tracklistings whether he played any tracks from these on his shows.

The DJ, however, is known to have played a happy hardcore cover by Alchemist of Nash's most famous song, 'I Can See Clearly Now' (see November 1996 (FSK)).
