Unusual Isaacs

Happy 2010! Here's a start for the New Year: 'Do You Ever' by Gregory Isaacs, a cover of an old tune by the Manhattans. It's quite unusual to hear so much passion from the Cool Ruler; he really throws everything at this one. Does it work? Well, sort of.

I keep this one more as a curiosity than anything else: the unusual vocal, the unsettling, jarring guitar, the experimental dub featuring an early attempt at an echo effect (not common in Randys productions of the time). Anyway, there's more on the way so watch this space. In the meantime, hope you enjoy.
