PostSubject: Gregory Isaacs singles selection!   Wed Oct 08, 2008 1:31 am

"When people hear the name Gregory Isaacs, I want dem to think of 'Night Nurse' and 'Red Rose for Gregory' and 'The Cool Ruler,'. I love it when somebody comes up to me and say "I love your songs" I feel good about it seen, only love can conquer war and it's good for people to make love hahaa. I have a label called the African Museum and I am still doing recordings and producing. It's mostly Reggae and Dancehall, an we got quite a few artists we got The Melodians, The EQ's, Dave Simon many many. We have an album out right now called "Rat Patrol" and one is in the making right now, nothing will change the Gregory Isaacs feel is universal. I write almost all my songs and I put myself in the presence of other people and a song like Night Nurse is about a man and a woman, yeah yuh nuh. My goal for the future is jus to keep on doing my work and trying to uplift who I can uplift."- from http://www.myspace.com/gregoryisaacsmon

"Gregory Isaacs (born Gregory Anthony Isaacs, 15 July 1950, Fletchers Land, Kingston, Jamaica)
In the 1970s, he emerged as one of the most prolific and popular recording artists in Jamaica. He released a number of self-produced singles on his African Museum (JA) record label, formed in 1973 with Errol Dunkley. Much of Isaacs' output reflected the 'conscious' themes of roots reggae, but Isaacs was equally adept at interpreting more mainstream lovers rock material. His hits include "My Only Lover", "Sinner Man" and "Mr. Cop", recorded at Lee Perry's Black Ark Studio.
A period in the 1970s with the GG's label and its record producer, Alvin Ranglin produced hits like "Border" and "Number One". Many consider his best music to be from the various producers and labels he recorded with in the 1970s, with rootsier songs like "Slave Master" from the classic Mr Isaacs album (1977), contrasting with the optimism of songs like "Love is Overdue" and the beautiful, moving "Loving Pauper".
He signed with Virgin Records and then Charisma Records in the late 1970s, and material from this period gave him a wider international audience. Songs such as "Soon Forward", "If I Don't Have You" and "Let's Dance" are often re-released on compilation albums from this period.
Isaacs signed an international release contract with Island Records, which resulted in the release of the albums Night Nurse (1982), probably his best known album among the many international music fans who had taken to reggae by then; and Out Deh! (1983). Personal problems affected him after this recording contract ended. After recording for a number of record producers, Isaacs built a strong relationship with Gussie Clarke of the Music Works label. His big comeback hit of 1988, "Rumours", was popular with both young reggae fans, and with those who had listened to his music since those classic songs from the 1970s.
In the 1990s the African Museum label continued to release all of Isaacs' music, and that of artists he produced. In 1997 Simply Red covered "Night Nurse" and had a hit with it. Isaacs continues to record and perform live in the 2000s. In 2005 Lady Saw produced another version of "Night Nurse" with her toasting over the original lyrics.
He also performed at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 Inauguration at Jamaica.
In 2007 he collaborated with the Spanish rap group Flowklorikos album Donde Duele Inspira.
In 2008, after some 40 years as a recording artist, Mr Isaacs release the new studio album "Brand new me". The album got good critics like this one from Reggae Vibes, “Gregory is back, and how! "Brand New Me" is the very suitable album title for the cool ruler's new album. He is back in a different style, more or less like we were used to from this great lovers & roots artist“[1]
Isaacs also had a prominent role in the 1978 film Rockers alongside many reggae stars of the time.[2]
His nicknames include "Cool Ruler" and "Lonely Lover"."- wikipedia
