Gregory Isaacs – the Best of Gregory Isaacs,
GG Records 1977

This ‘best of’ is not a ‘best of’ as I see it. It sounds more like a
one-session recording then like a collector. Tracks 2 and 3 are
written by ‘Alton Ellis’ if I’m not mistaking. Backed by ‘the
Revolutionairies’, ‘Gregory Isaacs’, with his voice
like sugar and glue, comes in with a great LP.
Recorded at Channel One Studio.
I like this one extremely much !

  1. Yes it is a great album.

    The track listing on the cover and label of my copy has no resemblance to the order on the actual vinyl.

    This is par for the course I know for many Jamaican pressings but this one really takes the biscuit.

    They are as follows.
    1. Willow Tree
    2. Breaking Up
    3. No Speech
    4. Tear Drops
    5. Double Attack
    6. My Number One
    7. Special Guest
    8. Look Before You Leap
    9. Cool You
    10. Freedom
