I was having an early drink last week and there was a dj spinning some unusual stuff (for Australia) and suddenly I heard
"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.

Without a doubt, THE best reggae album of all time!I'll admit being a bit biased about this. I heard it for the first time while vacationing in Jamaica sitting on the beach having a few Red Stripes. We were listening to a local radio program that was featuring the best Jamaican music of the last 40 years. Prince Buster's "Hard Man Fe Dead" comes on and my wife and me were completely blown away. We'd never heard anything like it before or since.Totally original, raunchy,incredible dance tunes that you'll find impossible not to groove to.This cd was hard to find, but well worth the time and money to procure.If you're a reggae fan and have not heard Prince Buster, you are truly missing out on one of the pioneers of the genre, not to mention how cool you're going to be when you put this on at your next party.

If they'd spent a few more bucks spent on audio restoration, this could have been wicked! That said, the sound is certainly NOT terrible as was previously suggested. I can't say the choice of songs is definitive, either, and the liner notes are barely there. So, why should you buy this? Because from the first note to the last, this collection rocks! Prince Buster is a true original and, at least until someone puts out the anthology the Prince truly deserves, this belongs in your collection, even if you just have a passing interest in ska.

Finally tracked this down after many hours of searching and boy was it worth it! The first track Earthquake sets you off , yer feet start to shuffle, yer arms start swinging and by the time Texas Hold Up hits you you'll be reachin' for that can of Red Stripe! Also I defy you to stand still whilst listening to Ten Commandments or Al Capone. Even the slow rocksteady numbers such as Julie & Too Hot stir you up the right way. This album is the perfect soundtrack to those summer evenings and parties with a wider musical scope .....I still play it most weeks at the club where I play Hip Hop!

Without a doubt, PRINCE BUSTER is the almighty father of the SKA-BLUE BEAT style (NOTE: of course, LAUREL AITKEN is the godfather of SKA). These tunes are the original soundtrack for any REAL MOD or SKINHEAD and that fact cannot be denied. I have a copy of a PRINCE BUSTER live show in London from 1967 and it is absolutely awesome. If you can find this recording, please grab it. It will be worth every cent you spend on it. I also recommend the SEQUEL to this CD. The only thing that sucks about these CDs is the fact that they don't have Prince Buster's original recording of ONE STEP BEYOND. However, there is another listing for a CD that does include this recording. Check out all the PRINCE BUSTER listing on this website. Also, TROJAN RECORDS is releasing a double CD of SKA classics (original and neo-ska classics). Happy listening...............PRINCE BUSTER rules!

Time travel with the Prince of ska and rock steady, mon!
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.
