The Cure was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Reggae album category. Aside from Morgan Heritage’s Strictly Roots album which won the Grammy, none of the other nominated albums have reflected increased sales following the Grammy telecast. The others were Branches of The Same Tree by Rocky Dawuni (Cumbancha Records); Acousticalevy by Barrington Levy (Doctor Dread Presents); and Zion Awake by Luciano (VP Records).
