Gregory Isaacs R.I.P.

Things are getting seriously bad. We lost Solomon Burke a couple of weeks back, and now The Cool Ruler himself has gone at the age of 59. As a small but totally inadequate tribute to one of the finest and most distinctive singers in any genre, here are just a few of my many personal favourites.

"Can't Get Over Losing You" - Gregory Isaacs

"Raving Tonight" - Gregory Isaacs

"Gi Me" - Gregory Isaacs

"Slow Down" - Gregory Isaacs

And here he is in an uncredited supporting role, as Dr Alimantado samples "My Religion" on his magnificently bonkers "Best Dressed Chicken In Town" album.

"Unitone Skank" - Dr Alimantado

  1. Yeah, really sad news. One of the best reggae performers around. R.I.P. Mr. Isaacs.
