Cool Down The Pace from his 1982 release, Night Nurse.

Gregory Isaacs is one of my favorite reggae artists. I really got turned on to him when I lived in Tanzania from 1995-1997. Reggae was something I always loved being from Miami, but I expanded my affinity for the style while I lived in Africa. Mr. Isaacs’ music wafted through the streets and alleys in towns across East Africa from small bars and nyama choma joints. His style was melodic and non-confrontational. Easy listening.

RIP Mr Isaacs. Your music was loved the world over.
