AllMusic Review by

Gregory Isaacs' death in 2010 robbed Jamaica of one of its greatest lovers rock voices. Ever graceful and ever prolific, and seemingly a music industry all to himself, Isaacs smoothly navigated the Kingston waters from the roots era through the dancehall era, all without changing much of what he did. This two-disc set makes a nice in-depth introduction to the singer, with disc one (called Extra Classic) covering the years 1970 to 1978 and the second (Cream of the Crop) covering the years 1979 to 1985.
