Out Now! Licensed through Real Authentic Sounds (RAS) is the wondrous 'Across The Border' by Freddie "Ever Ready" McGregor. Featured on this special 12" release are 2 vocal cuts (with extra instruments) and the thunderous and earthshaking Dub. Freddie McGregor is one of reggae's most durable and soulful singers, with an incredibly steady career that started all the way back in the '60s, when he was just seven years old. Since then, he's spanned nearly every stylistic shift in Jamaican music, from ska and rocksteady to roots reggae to lovers rock (his particular specialty). Not just a singer, he wrote some of his own material, and grew into an accomplished producer as well. Freddie remains a strong presence on the reggae scene well into the new millennium.
