Prince Buster, a king amongst men – The Prince wielded a greater influence on Jamaican music than any other single individual. He was there at the birth of ska, rock steady and beyond. Would 2-Tone have existed without him? No, no it wouldn’t. He chose music over boxing and produced knockout tunes time after time. Right from the off, he created a sensation with his 1961 debut single, “Little Honey,” which introduced the unique ska rhythms to a Jamaica that couldn’t get enough. That same year he produced Oh Carolina for the Folkes Brothers and he never looked back from there – but you can – with this sampler. Judge for yourself.
