Gregory Isaacs (1951-2010)

On October 25th, Jamaican reggae singer Gregory Isaacs lost his battle with lung cancer. Isaacs led a long career singing smooth reggae, starting to record in his teens. Developing a style that was smooth and romantic, Isaacs distinguished himself as a top reggae artist. A drug addiction threaten to end his career early until his 2008 album Brand New Me proved that he was still capable of producing a top quality album. His latest album Isaacs Meets Isaac, with Zimbabwean reggae singer King Isaac, was released while he was still living.

A suggested playlist in tribute to Isaacs long and successful career includes:

“Night Nurse”

“Let’s Dance”

“Soon Forward”

“I Will Return”

“Over and Over Again”
