This is an excellent career spanning collection of the Cool Ruler's chart toppers. Given, there are some gaps that exsist but a comprehensive collection of Isaac's best music would take 3 CDs, not one. This retrospective, together with the albums "Soon Forward","Night Nurse" and "Out Deh" will give the listener the complete picture of Isaac's greatest moments... but this collection is a good starting point.
Gregory Isaacs should have been international reggae star with the stature of Bob Marley or Peter Tosh. Unfortunately Gregory's love of drugs and penchant for trouble derailed him at the peak of his career. He spent much of his peak popularity behind bars on various drug and weapons charges. I had the privlidge of deejaying one of his live shows in 1983 with the Sugar Minott crew and Half Pint. The notoriously erratic Mr. Isaacs showed up for the 7 pm sound check, disappeared to who knows where, and showed up an hour late for his midnight stage time. When he finally showed up, he blew the roof off the dance hall, but the frantic promoter refused to book Isaacs again.
