I purchased a copy of this Tad's Records reissue of Gregory Isaac's classic "Night Nurse" along with their reissue of "Cool Ruler" and I'm disappointed to say that my copy of this album has severe issues with the pitch going in and out towards the end of each side. It's very noticeable and not worth keeping in my opinion. That's not to mention other small issues like typos, etc. on the artwork which point to this being a pretty poor pressing as far as I'm concerned. Fortunately my copy of "Cool Ruler" doesn't have the same issues, though the typos are still present there as well. Very disappointing, I would suggest avoiding unless you are desperate to hear the extra dub tracks and are willing to take the risk of getting a bad copy.

Has anyone else noticed that the labels are on the wrong side? Side A and B are reversed. Or is this just my copy?

Bad pressing - pitch is low, timing off. Avoid.

Front to back genius on this one. The production is like Conny Plank level; somehow everything sounds off the cuff and polished all at once. I wouldn't be surprised if Holger Czukay was on the couch in the stood eating delicious trader joes' peanut butter pretzels and going "OHHHHH!" every time Gregory or Errol basically turned on a drum mic, and it was GOOD and placed perfectly, or they turned on a bass amp and "what do you know, the tone is already there, let's lay this down Flabba" or maybe someone in a diver's helmet knocked on the studio door, and he'd brought Gregory a guitar from a shipwreck that hadn't been played in ten years and Gregory took it out of the dusty case covered in seaweed, plugged it in, gave it a strum, and it was still in perfect tune. "OOOOHHHHH!!"

These sessions must have been MAGIC. I would give anything to have been Flabba laying down some bass and then looking up to see Gregory smiling at me, telling me how proud he was of me and my basswork, and that I'll always be his friend.

Then you have Gregory Isaacs himself, and his greatest instrument, his wife material voice. I've read some reviews on allmusic or something about how he wasn't a great vocalist; this is FALSE. Who cares about his range? Gregory Isaacs is not a stovetop... he is the STUFFING. Every word he speaks is true. He's a stranger in your town. Cool down the pace, because the pain is getting worse for this material man, the hot stepper. Omg, the piano on 'hot stepper'. Holger's like "OOOOOOH!" Objection? Overruled.

5 out of 5 ***PURE MOLTEN LAVA***
