"Al Capones guns don't argue" I was off my stool and swinging my hips and clicking my tongue chu chucca chu chucca, just as I did when I was 14 playing my Mums old copy of Al Capone b/w One step beyond (just as she had when she first bought it in 1964)
I remember the specials/Madness/Selector etc well and went to a couple of ska/2 tone concerts in 1980, but non of those bands come anywhere near the originals. These songs are timeless and have more rhythm than there milk and water copies from the late 70's early 80's. If you like ska, buy it.
It's a once off buy.
This recording is from about 1967. 'Earthquake on Orange Street' talks about Sonny Liston and Mohammed Ali. 'Take It Easy' talks about landing at Le Bourget (ending a long tradition going back to Lindbergh). But that's all history.
This is the beginning of modern ska. Here we meet the feared Judge Dread (also known as Judge Hundred Years). He's called that 'cause his sentences are always in blocks of 100 years. Judge Dread is not afraid of rude boys, and he wants to make an example of them.
Fortunately, by track twelve, Judge Dread is willing to consider probation, as long as the rude boys listen to some jazzy horn. "No more shootin'! no more lootin'!"
Prince Buster anticipated rap. No wonder he took Brighton by storm in 1964! Learn your history, mon! This is the voice of Free Love, the voice of the Ten Commandments, the Blue Beat of Kingston.
Hard to find, so don't be a chump and miss out.

A wonderfully eclectic mix, but this CD really needs the song Rough Rider, probably Prince Buster's best song.Published on October 18, 2002 by Randall W
