Editors’ Notes

Few artists have been more prolific than reggae crooner Gregory Isaacs, which makes an album as consistently great as the lovers rock classic Night Nurse all the more remarkable. Backed by frequent collaborators The Roots Radic Band, Isaacs (aka "The Cool Ruler") sounds cooler than ever. Whether asking forgiveness on "Objection Overruled," in search of some sexual healing on "Night Nurse," or hoping love can continue on "Sad to Know (You're Leaving)," his relaxed delivery makes the emotional timbres of these songs sublimely subtle. The album's polished roots vibe, with subtle synth flourishes contributes to its quiet energy. Lover's rock owes much to R&B. But Isaacs doesn't beg, scream, or shout. Instead, he projects a remove that on one hand makes him "The Man" and on the other reveals his resignation that the world of romance is beyond his control.

Customer Reviews

Get This Album!

Back when I was first getting into the genre, I asked a knowledgable friend to recommend a good reggae album by an artist other than Bob Marley. "Night Nurse" was his immediate response. I bought it and it instantly became one of my favorite albums, reggae or otherwise. There aren't too many albums you can put on and listen the whole way through without skipping over the less-than-stellar tracks, but Night Nurse is solid from top to bottom. Plus, the version I bought didn't have the 4 bonus "dub" tracks that i-Tunes offers here. If you want to expand your reggae repertoire beyond Bob Marley, this is the album to start with. One listen and you'll know why Gregory Isaacs is known as the "Cool Ruler."

Cool Laid Back Grooves

This album is something else. The laid back grooves just don't quit from start to finish. Perfect on a summer day with a cool drink and chillin' in the shade. Cool Ruler you're beautiful, baby!

One of Jamaica's most beloved vocalists who was as pertinent in dancehalls as he was in bedrooms, Gregory Isaacs' career stretched over 30 years.

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.
