AllMusic Review by

This 2006 collection presents many of the finest songs that roots-reggae superstar Gregory Isaacs recorded and released during the 1970s. Although some tracks here find the velvet-voiced Isaacs taking on hard-hitting, socially conscious material (the disenchanted "Black Against Black," the defiant "Slave Master"), other songs feature him easing into his trademark Lovers Rock style, as on the tender ballad "If You're in Love." While there are more comprehensive Isaacs compilations on the market, LIFE'S LONELY ROAD provides a commendable snapshot of his '70s material.
