One of my favourite live gig memories ever, is seeing Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown at the Nia Centre in Hulme/Moss Side circa 199...3? 4? 5? Thereabouts, anyway. When the Cool Ruler came on, he got mobbed on stage by screaming girls… only the girls in question were, like, 50yo Jamaican women. Watching these hyowge Jamaican arses in their best Sunday floral church dresses trying to clamber onto a four-foot stage was just hilarious, bless ’em.
Anyway, maximum respect to a true legend, and to honour his passing here's what's always been my favourite Gregory Isaacs tune.
