Biography

Gregory Isaacs sings a love song like no other Jamaican artist. Effortless, smooth, seductive and sensual, his "Lonely Lover" persona has made him one of the most popular singers in Jamaica since the '70s. Reggae's version of Marvin Gaye, Isaacs' songs remain as popular in dancehalls as they are in bedrooms, having virtually invented the reggae genre known as ...

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Mr.Love" is an awful title for the best package of Gregory Isaacs' sublime work with Sly and Robbie at their Taxi studio from 1978 until 1982. It was era when the roots conscious reggae was at the summit of it's international popularity. Also included are selections from Gregory's earliest self produced albums with the Roots Radics musical crew on Virgin Records

Mr. Love is a deceptive title because is an equitable balance between Mr. Isaac's most powerful Rastafarian musical statements and the seductive lover's rock that earned Gregory his undisputed title of the Cool Ruler of the rockers genre. There are even a few selections from Gregory's 1979 masterpiece "Soon Forward" which Mr. Isaacs produced himself.

The collection is so well bundled, it has the seamless feel of an album, not a retrospective. The pseudo-indie label Caroline Records was able to cherry-pick from a broad selection because their parent company Virgin was once the world's largest independent label and the earliest business project of the swashbuckling Virgin CEO Richard Branson. Branson was one of the earliest non-Jamaican fans of reggae music. One of Branson's mission objectives in founding Virgin was to record and distribute reggae music in his native UK.

As a result of Branson's early involvement in the Jamaican reggae scene, Virgin Records holds the licensing rights to a bumper crop of classic reggae gems including Gregory's earliest blockbuster hits in Jamaica and the UK. Simon Heyworth who produced "Mr. Love" in 1995 cherry picked the selections for the album and certainly got it right. Heyworth was also at the helm for the digital re-mastering of "Mr. Love" a couple of years ago.
