The Best Of…

Was Gregory Isaacs Ja­maica’s great­est singer, as well as its self-ap­pointed Cool Ruler? Plenty on this 40-track trawl through his im­pe­ri­ous 1970s record­ings ar­gues that case per­sua­sively – see im­pas­sioned street-tough tunes such as Mr Cop, Black A Kill Black and Slave Master. Of course, whether a col­lec­tion lack­ing his ro­man­tic clas­sic Night Nurse can re­ally be called The Best Of… is a moot point, but still – what a voice! AP
