The impact of Freddie McGregor's debut album Mr. McGregor would be lessened just months after its release thanks to the appearance of his classic sophomore effort Bobby Bobylon. Thirty years later, VP's expanded reissue - by way of their 17 North Parade imprint - makes a great argument that these sides cut for Niney's Observer label deserve better. The difference here is that the bonus tracks are basically the 1981 album Showcase, an Observer release which collected all the loose ends, although with massive tracks like "The Overseer" included, it was no stale set of leftovers. Its inclusion enhances this reissue, making this a great overview of McGregor's early days in Niney's workshop.

Freddie McGregor has in my opinion, been one of the best exponents of Reggae Music Singers, whether doing Lovers Rock or Dance type. This is a fine collection of some of his best hits through the years. Purchased this CD for my husband for his birthday he loved it as he is a staunch reggae fan.
