I am very surprised that the albums for the Brooklyn based TAD-Records (owned by the Dawkin Brothers) are amongst the best sounding in Gregory's long career. Okay "Night Nurse" and "Out Deh" for Island and his former Virgin Frontline albums sound more polished, due to remixing and re-mastering in the UK. But EASY and this one have a really fine musical punch and the arrangements are very good. The list of musicians is beyond any doubt as usual. Although this was probably the most intense time in Gregory's long Cocaine affection, his voice comes along strong and with a lot of feeling and emotion.
I wonder if he got his share of the albums profits directly in Rock or Powder form or in cash ? So it's no wonder they added his 1986/87 smash hit "Hard Drugs" to the album
It wasn't planned to be on it, a sticker in the cover tells
about it. as is often the case these anti-drug songs tell from an ever loosing battle "The More They Get It, Is The More They Want It.." Everyone on the island knew that song and the crisis the Crack epidemie that flooded the Island in the mid eighties brought along.
Besides this tune we have the usual someetimes glad, sometimes sad or tragic Love Songs Gregory is known for and he delivers them in excellent style. A pity the jacket looks so slopy and that the album never got a proper distribution. It is definitely worth a re-release and in case you see it anywhere and like Gregory buy it , you won't regret it..
