Reserrection time :D Just been listening a few times to the Private lesson album released on Acid Jazz in 1995. A late Gregory classic I reckon. Just picked it up on cd after having it on a scratched vinyl for years. Understated, cool - of course- with the classic Gregory slyness and dry humour in the lyrics and smooothness in the delivery. An early Prince Fatty production too in conjunction with Bigga Morrisson whose keyboards are excellent as are the rest of the band. The dub counterpart is disapointing though, dry in the negative sense. Boring in other words.

Any other late gems from the Cool Ruler you can reccommend?

Private Beach Party from 1985 (I think) has always been a personal favourite, the late great cool ruler in fine voice throughout.

Between his prods:
Viceroys - Brethren & Sistren (much better than the L Thompson produced version. Love this one!)
