Message Man is the second album by Eddy Grant. Track listing.

A self-titled solo album released in 1975 made little impact, nor did the proto-soca Message Man, completed and released in 1977, on which Grant played all the instruments himself. His breakthrough as a solo artist came two years later with the album Walking on Sunshine, which spawned the UK top 20 hit "Living on the Frontline". He returned to. the charts in 1980 with the top 10 hit "Do You Feel My Love", the opening track of Can't Get Enough, the 1981 album giving him his first entry in the UK Albums Chart

Eddy Grant stands among an elite group of artists as one who has not just merely moved successfully across the musical spectrum but has actually been at the forefront of genres and even created one of his own. From pop star to reggae radical, musical entrepreneur to the inventor of ringbang, the artist has cut a swath through the world of music and made it his ow. It wasn’t until 1977 when Grant finally released a record of his own, the Message Man album. Tracks like Cockney Black, Race Hate, and Curfew were politicized dark masterpieces laced with aggression and anger. But the album also included some lighter moments, including Hello Africa, which featured a sound that the media hadn’t even invented a word for yet.
