A new compilation of Gregory Isaacs' songs that take us along nearly 30 years back, in the good old days. Let’s Go!

Sampler

Gregory Isaacs - The African Museum and Tad's Collection volume 1Come back in the 1980’s with this compilation of Gregory Isaacs’ songs. As the title album suggests it features a majority of tracks released on his own African Museum label and American Tad’s records but also two live tracks from Reggae Greats (Live 1984) as the powerful ‘Universal Tribulation’ issued from Soon Forward.

Gregory Isaacs formed the African Museum label with Errol Dunkley to be followed later with a record shop of the same name in Downtown Kingston in 1973. Tad’s now reissues some of the Cool Ruler’s best African Museum productions issued from the 1982 Night Nurse masterpiece as the hit with the same name, ‘Cool Down The Pace’, ‘Stranger In Town’ and the strong ‘Hot Stepper’. Tad’s also chose for us the hot ‘Private Secretary’, ‘Out Deh’ and ‘Love Me With Feeling’ all issued from Out Deh album originally released in 1983 on African Museum.

Finally, this set only includes five songs produced by Tad A. Dawkins as ‘Hard Drugs’ or the beautiful ‘Loving Pauper’, but it’s always better to value quality over quantity. In case that you missed those classic songs, this compilation is the good way to go back in the good old days, when Roots Radics band were backing one of Jamaican reggae icons alias the captivating Gregory Isaacs.
