For Me, it was a tape given to me by a friend. In the old days Rastamen courted their potential queens with Music, Fruit, Incense and Ishens. yes those were the days.. The tape had alot of music on it, but most of it was Gregory Isaacs. That tape created an instant fan. from that day in 1977 I was hooked on the coolness of Gregory Isaacs.
This compilation is to highlight his career as an artist, producer and record label owner. Many people forget that his African Museum Label released all of Gregorys' music begining in the late 1990's. He did alot of tunes for a great many of the hottest producers of the day. But His Work came out of African Museum; and it had that special sound.
When you listen to his voice, you can't help but to feel the gritty smooth rudeness of the Kingston of the 1970's and 80's. Mostly because he croons it like thick coconut jelly. There will be many but there will only be One Cool Ruler.
This Tribute Contains the Following Twenty Tunes - along with a short two part biographical commentary. Next Week we will release the soundtrack minus narration; in two parts.
