A classic release from one of Jamaica's greats, NIGHT NURSE shows the Cool Ruler at his best--performing melodic, chilled reggae such as the title track and "Hot Stepper." The title track was a hit for Simply Red when they covered it in 1997. Although at his most prolific in the mid '80s, when he was beset by financial problems, Isaacs managed to maintain the quality of his material as this album proves. The Roots Radics provide excellent backing for Isaacs' smooth vocals. Perhaps a bit too mellow for fans of more militant reggae such as that purveyed by the Revolutionaries, time has nevertheless proved this to be a classic reggae album--the epitome of the feel-good Jamaican sound.

What the critics say...

Q (9/02, p.126) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Has a similar flavor to MORE GREGORY; the sweet, haunting sorrow of 'The Fugitive' is a high point..."
Mojo (Publisher) (8/02, p.78) - Included in Mojo's 50 Greatest Reggae Albums - "...Isaacs at his most seductive, oozing sensuality..."s
