Album review

Prince Buster - Fabulous Greatest Hits

Although his early days were spent as a Terry McCann to "Coxsone" Dodd's Arthur Daley during Kingston's musical turf wars, Jamaica's first true pop star was soon leading ska's '60s assault on UK dancefloors with a clutch of singles that were the equal of anything on offer from Detroit or Liverpool. Such is its enduring popularity, since this album's original release it's had more re-pressings than an old man's suit—and it's easy to see why. This is a piece of history that needs telling time and time again.
