Editors’ Notes

Backed by his frequent collaborators the Roots Radics, Gregory Isaacs sounds cooler than ever on the 1982 lovers rock staple Night Nurse. Whether asking for forgiveness on “Objection Overruled,” hoping love can continue on “Sad to Know (You’re Leaving),” or searching for sexual healing on the title track, his relaxed delivery is subtle and sublime. These are slow jams of the highest order—and their polished roots vibe and gentle synth flourishes only add to their quiet energy.

Customer Reviews


This is the expanded re-release of Isaacs' 1982 classic (which originally included only eight songs). This version includes three dubs and one 10" mix. The original album is, of course, an established classic and would still stand up today without the bonus tracks. To be honest, the only bonus tracks which carry much weight are the 10" mix of "Cool Down The Pace" and the dub of "Night Nurse" (although I prefer the "other" dub of "Night Nurse", which is not included here). The "Cool Down The Pace Dub" is fine, but it is nothing more than the first half of the 10" mix. The "Unhappy Departure Dub" (a dub of "Sad To Know") you can take or leave (the wonderful 10" mix of "Material Man" would have been a preferable choice here; it really should have been included anyway). Standout tracks: "Hot Stepper", "Material Man", "Cool Down The Pace" (original and 10" mix) and "Night Nurse".

From the heady days of reggae through lovers rock, a genre he virtually invented, his talent reached into the modern age. Born in the Fletcher's Land area of Kingston, Jamaica, on July 15, 1951, Isaacs arrived in the music business via the talent show circuit, a tried and true formula for many of the island's budding singing stars.
