Gregory Isaacs – Help Us Get Over

• “Help Us Get Over” set to a later compilation cover. Thanks to francus83.

8.6 “Excellent Reggae from Jamaica”

First out as a 7″ in 1975 before settling down to live on his album “All I Have Is Love” (Micron Music Limited) released in 1976 .

I’ve witnessed first hand the adoration for the cool ruler in his homeland and it’s not difficult to understand just why he was loved so much; he just soothes the pain away…

Jah Jah please help us to get over
This life we live in misery
All that I see along my journey, each day
My people are brand with poverty
So many of them out there starving
Searching to find a bite to eat
So many of them without shelter, yeah, yeah
And some nuh get shoe upon their feet

So tell us how long will it take to get over
This life we live in misery
‘Cause all that we see along the journey
My people are brand with poverty, yeah

Gregory Isaacs; still alive in endless time and endless art <3
