In the year of 1988 everybody was saying all sorts of nasty things about Mr. Isaacs, thinkinghe was deadstock. But little did they know that meanwile in the city ofKingston a man by the name of Gregory was cleaning his guns, sharpening hisknives and getting a new set of teeth. Lord ave mercy, you shoulda neva disdi don... Some people thought Mr. Isaacs was heading for oblivion, but he wasn't, he heading for Gussie Clark's new studio to voice the first tuneto be released from Music Works. And what a killer it was! Gregory dissinghis critics over a heavy high tech riddim that was just sensational! Twomonths later aproximetly 300 singles and 15 albums by Isaacs had been released.While being deadstock in oblivionsville Gregory had apperently been voicingcuts for every producer in the island, and everybody had been sitting on it,waiting for something to happen.The new high tech sound from Gussie Clark was to dominate at least theinternational reggae market for a couple of years. Many people thoughtthis would mark a comeback for reggae internationally, but strangely enoughit didn't. Considering his modern sound and the strength of his performers itshould have made some impact on the international market. But on the other hand, everybody can't have as good taste in music as youand I... ;-)

telephone, girl i want you to come on home... your lips
as sweet as cheries, i can hear you clearly but oh my
darling i am lonely" something like that...im sure its
rumours riddim."

No you're wrong, that song is I"m Lonely by HOpeton
James on the Bye BYe Love rhythm. Very rare tune, I
have the full album though called "In the Mood".

Big tunes also from Chevelle Franklin-Telephone Love >> I assume You mean J.C. Lodge.
The female DJ who did "Don't spread no rumours" (aka "Nuff Respect") is Lady G.

Big tune and riddim from a big artist. What more proof is needed confirm that Greg Isaacs is the epitome of the Cool Ruler. Big tunes also from Chevelle Franklin-Telephone Love I can't recall the name of the female Djay who did, " don't spread no rumour, nuff respekt."
You should get the Dean fraser pressuring the sax on disa tune-wikid!!!!!!
