Comments are closed

The legend of Gregory Isaacs lives on with a four-disc album aptly titled The Love Box, releasing from Tad’s Record on the international day of love, February 14, 2013. This is Isaacs’ first four-disc box set and comprises of 80 love songs, some of which are pulled from the vault. This unprecedented compilation is the result of a unique collaboration between Tad’s Record and Isaacs’ own label, African Museum, as the Cool Ruler continues his reign with his signature love songs and sound, come this Valentine’s Day.

The Love Box maintains Isaacs’ incomparable grasp of the hearts of fans with his melodic, soulful sound, which has earned him an unparalleled place in reggae history. “Gregory’s niche for reggae love songs was second nature to him,” reveals his wife, June Isaacs. “He had the knack for formulating lyrics that resonated with the emotions of the heart. African Museum takes great pleasure in collaborating with Tad’s Record to release this four-disc album, The Love Box. Relax, listen and enjoy or dance to smooth music from the original lover’s rock man, the crooner Gregory Isaacs – the Smokey Robinson of Jamaica.”

“African Museum will continue under the umbrella of The Gregory Isaacs Foundation,” Isaacs discloses. “The release of The Love Box further cements the relationship between Tad’s Record and the Foundation, as we work towards the preservation of the music from this reggae icon.”

Tad’s Record has a long and rich history of working with Gregory Isaacs, first as a producer in the early years and now as a distributor. “When we decided to release The Love Box, we knew it would be well-received by Gregory’s fans worldwide,” states Tad Dawkins, President of Tad’s Record. “Gregory Isaacs was an artist known for his ‘lovey dovey’ and smooth lyrics, which always had his fans craving for more. This four-disc box set sums up the exquisite talent of one of Jamaica’s greatest lover’s rock artist, and Tad’s Record considers it an honor to be affiliated with this project.”

Gregory Isaacs was born on July 15, 1951 in Kingston, Jamaica, and passed away on October 25, 2010 at the age of 59 in London, England, following a long battle with lung cancer. He is cherished worldwide as the heartbeat of lover’s rock music and has released more than 500 albums to date, many of them compilations. However, The Love Box is by far the largest and indeed, the ultimate collection, from the Cool Ruler.
