It's good (as anything Gregory Isaacs did in the 70s imo).

"Love Overdue", "Sweeter The Victory", "Dreams Come True", "The Way She Walks" are my faves. All tunes are of a mellow similar-sounding type played by the Soul Syndicate band in the pre-rockers era. The cover is a classic too. I think Heartbeat has re-released this with another name and some bonus tracks& discomixes...

..well their is a nice drawing of Gregory cruising in his red Ford Capri on the front cover :)

Track listing:

Sweeter The Victory
Love Overdue
Financial Endorsement
Be Careful
Another Heart Ache
If You're In Love
Dreams Come True
The Way She Walks
Far Beyond The Valley
Happiness Come
No Forgiveness
Love Disguise

I probably own about 2 dozen Gregory albums. "Financial Endorsement" would be my favourite from this set. But this is early Gregory. I would categorise it more as "big people's music". So it would go along nicely with some Pat Kelly or some John Holt, or some Tim Chandell. A set of gentle swaying ballads. Not my favourite style and it depends on how you like your Gregory. I prefer the Virgin Frontline stuff myself.

The Trojan version (repress?) was on sale for 2.99 a few months back at Selectadisc.

Hadn't seen Ade's answer btw...

"Big people's music" is a quite accurate description! But I think if you generally like Gregory's stuff, you'll like this too...
