Top album from Freddie and probably his strongest set for a long time,great tunes include Bag a Hype,the Lennon/mcartney track You Won't See Me,Move Up Jamaica and Equal Rights,including Leroy Sibbles on bass Cool add up to one strong lp,top notch musicianship and production make it one of the best new releases in a long time,nice one Mr Mcgregor! 5/5 Cool Cool

This is my first Freddie McGregor album, plenty of compilations with him on, one of those artists that have just slipped by me.

I just happened to mention to 'the wife' about buying my first Freddie McGregor album, and she reminded me that I have actually seen him live in concert. It was late 80's down by the Watershed in Bristol. Also reminded me about Beres Hammond, Yellowman, Half Pint, Taxi Gang and a few others she couldn't remember the names of Rolling Eyes

I had forgotten I used to go and see anybody live in the 80s if they played reggae, do remember Gregory Isaacs failing to turn up at one gig in Bristol. Crying or Very Sad

Now that last post has made me think how come 'wives' can remember every single detail from the past 27 years of marriage, and yet I can't remember to empty the dishwasher, as she likes to point out, almost daily Laughing

I wonder if Gregory Isaacs would remember to empty his dishwasher? Mr. Green
