Gregory Isaacs - The Early Years

I guess you could say this is nothing more than a collection of material from the beginnings of Gregory's career...and you'd be factually right...you'd also be leaving a lot out...

Gregory's output over the last 35 - 40 years is ridiculous...he's the rare artist, like Marvin Gaye or Stevie Wonder, who can make deeply conscious music without ever sacrificing its accessibility, or commercial appeal. And this record puts his later music in a nice context...seems to be out of print right now, import or domestic...if you know otherwise, leave a comment. Thanks.

The one jam I cannot stop listening to:
