Rupie Edwards & The Virtues / Gregory Isaacs - Falling In Love / Lonely Man download album
The group began recording for Rupie Edwards, and of the half-dozen tracks to surface from the sessions, ‘Don’t Let Me Suffer’ is the most impressive. The Lonely Lover and More Gregory albums for Charisma’s Pre subsidiary were divided pretty evenly between roots ‘reality’ tunes and songs of heartbreak. Poor Man In Love’ (Tabu 1 12, 2015). As time rolled on and Isaacs records kept pouring forth, the catalogue grew increasingly patchy.
Isaacs subsequently formed a trio, the Concords, with two other hopefuls, recording a number of impressive tunes for Rupie Edwards in 1969, of which the most notable was Don't Let Me Suffer. Other stirring solo singles, such as Too Late and Lonely Man, followed. By 1970 he had formed the independent label African Museum with a fellow singer, Errol Dunkley. A shift to Charisma Records' subsidiary Pre in 1980 brought the album Lonely Lover and its follow-up, More Gregory, the latter featuring the Jamaican chart success Top Ten. Both albums were backed by the Roots Radics band, with whom Isaacs toured the UK in 1980-81. Night Nurse (1982), issued by Island, was his most commercially successful set to date, but just as he reached a pinnacle of popularity, problems arose.

Gregory Anthony Isaacs OD (15 July 1951 – 25 October 2010) was a Jamaican reggae musician. Milo Miles, writing in The New York Times, described Isaacs as "the most exquisite vocalist in reggae". In his teenage years, Isaacs became a veteran of the talent contests that regularly took place in Jamaica
Gregory Anthony Isaacs (15 July 1951 – 25 October 2010) was a Jamaican reggae musician. His honorific nickname was the Cool Ruler. In his teens, Isaacs became a veteran of the talent contests that regularly took place in Jamaica. The single sold poorly and Isaacs went on to team up with two other vocalists (Penroe and Bramwell) in the short-lived trio The Concords, recording for Rupie Edwards and Prince Buster. The trio split up in 1970 and Isaacs launched his solo career, initially self-producing recordings and also recording further for Edwards.
They set up home at Rupie Edwards’ Success label, and over the next couple of years released a number of singles, including one with Prince Buster, but none caught the attention of the Jamaican public. In 1970, the Concords folded and Isaacs struggled on alone. His initial self-productions were unsuccessful, while further cuts with Edwards did no better. The album was produced by Gussie Clarke, a man with the determined goal of creating an international crossover sound via his own one-stop operation Ã la Motown. He hadn’t quite succeeded yet, but Private Beach Party helped lay the groundwork. In 1987 Isaacs collaborated with the equally sweet-singing DJ Sugar Minott for the Double Dose album. Isaacs swiftly found himself a dancehall hero. It was during this period that Isaacs also recorded an album for King Tubby.
