It's impossible to ignore the contribution to the world of music and reggae music in particular by Gregory Isaacs.
His distinctive voice graced so many songs and, in my opinion, 5 albums of his own that no reggae-loving household should be without.
NIGHT NURSE, the eponymous album title and signature song that only Mr. Isaacs has a right to sing was by all accounts his most successful album.
This re-mastered version of the classic album includes 4 extra vintage dancehall dub versions of:
Cool Down The Pace (x2)
Sad To Know (That You're Leaving)-- "Unhappy Departure Dub"
Until after Mr. Isaacs release, Private Beach Party, his album style was one of place and play. There was no need to take off Gregory or move to another track.
This is as much a testament to his artistic taste as it was to his silky-smooth delivery.
If you could pick three Gregory Isaac albums to own, my recommendations are, in order:
1. More Gregory
2. Out Deh!
3. Night Nurse
Three must-own Gregory Isaacs albums. All 5 stars.
