David Isaacs (no relation to Gregory Isaacs) is said to have been responsible for launching the Trojan label into worldwide acclaim with his debut LP, A Place In The Sun. Mr. Isaacs recorded between the late ‘60s and early ‘80s, releasing five albums and numerous singles, many of which were produced by Lee Perry. During this time, he recorded one of the saddest songs (in the history of love songs, I think), “Just Enough To Keep Me Hanging On”. The aesthetic of the recording; the slight echo of the vocals, the lonely feel, the chorus, everything about the song, is totally heartbreaking.

HEAR “JUST ENOUGH TO KEEP ME HANGING ON”

***BONUS CUT: “A PLACE IN THE SUN”

Mr. Isaacs also did a killer cover of Stevie Wonder’s “A Place In The Sun”, the title track to his beloved first album (also produced by Lee Perry). Wonderful stuff, dig it!
