Prince Buster was a Jamaican singer, songwriter, and producer who sadly passed away in September 2016.  However his legacy to Jamaican music will never be forgotten or underestimated.  He is regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of ska and rocksteady music. The records he released in the 1960's influenced and shaped the course of Jamaican contemporary music and created a legacy of work that later reggae and ska artists will draw upon. Here are three albums of early stuff to highlight just how great Prince Buster was.  Tunes that will get any old fart up and dancing...or at least tapping their feet and nodding their head.  However a note the sound on some of the tracks are variable, but quite listenable nonetheless, don't forget they were recorded over 50 years ago in Jamaica. Also the first disc may be 'The Ska Singles', the set is actually Shuffle, R'n'B, and pre-ska, but let's not quibble!
