Old School Jam Of The Moment: Gregory Isaacs “Night Nurse”

Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is a tribute to Gregory Isaacs, who passed away over the weekend.

"Night Nurse" is STILL the jam.  Just thinking of the song, you have to bob your head.  For those that may not dig the live version, below is the original recording.  Hope you enjoy as we pay tribute to Isaacs.-Dr.FB

Reggae Legend Gregory Isaacs Passes Away

Gregory Isaacs

Reggae legend Gregory Isaacs has passed away after a long battle with cancer.  He passed away in London with his family around him.

His career began in the late 60's and he had a major crossover hit with "Night Nurse" in 1982.  When you hear the phrase "Lovers Rock" he is part of that genre. 

He was diagnosed with cancer of the liver last year.  Isaacs released over 50 records during his career including his final one released in March 2010.

We want to send our condolences to Isaacs family and friends.-Dr.FB
