RIP Gregory Isaacs

Lotek ft 1/6 - Sad Mood (Gregory Isaacs Tribute) by WayneLotek

A true reggae legend, Gregory Isaacs, has passed away. His voice and styling were unique - with an appeal only matched by the likes of Dennis Brown, Bob Marley and Johnny Clarke. There is a great obituary here.

Also tune in to the Lawless Street today. I'd done a pre-record of Gregory tunes about three weeks ago, but it didn't run - so I'm going to run it today. And here is some more audio. Two classic tracks and their dubs, reissued on a Trojan 10"
