Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Ring for the Night Nurse


"Night Nurse" is a classic Jamaican reggae tune from Gregory Isaacs. Shortly after signing to Island Records in 1982, Isaacs released the single in advance of his 1982 album of the same name. The album was a top 40 hit on the UK Albums Chart, hugely popular in the clubs & received heavy radio play.

I featured a Dub version of Night Nurse on the Flabba Holt / Bingy Bunny post (an outing with Flabba & Style Scott called Nurse in Dub).

A cover version of "Night Nurse" was released in 1997 by Sly & Robbie featuring Mick Hucknall which also became a hit single in the UK. Dedicated Isaacs fans should appreciate the authenticity Sly & Robbie kept on the track.

Here are most all the versions of said take on said tune by Sly & Robbie with a great group of cohorts (the Adrian Sherwood Dub the Patient track, Jah’s 12" mix, both Groove Corp tracks...excellent additions).
