Around this time he also became a regular vocalist with Lyn Taitt & the Comets, one of the most popular bands on Jamaica's hotel and club circuit at the time and itwas while with the group that he first began performing the Stevie Wonder hit 'A Place In The Sun', the popularity of which prompted him to cut the song for Lee 'Scratch' Perry at Coxson Dodd's Studio One facility in August 1968. The record became a sizable seller both in Jamaica and the UK, where it saw issue on the recently launched Trojan label.
Isaacs and Perry maintained their working relationship over the nest few years, recording numerous sides with varying degrees of success, but by the mid-seventies, the singer had eased off from studio work. He finally resumed recording in earnest around the latter half of the decade, cutting sides for a number of producers, including Bunny Lee, Blackbeard and Witty Reid, the latter producing the sizable Lovers Rock hit, 'Just Like The Sea' in 1979.
In 1987, with a handful of solo albums under his belt, he joined the Itals, recording and touring intermittently with the group up until his untimely death last week.
Sadly, in the early hours of December 21st, he was found dead by his sister, Beverley Isaacs, on the floor of their Denham Town home in west Kingston. A greatly under-rated performer whose melodic tenor graced far too few recordings over the years, he was 63 and is survived by 10 children.
