Prince Buster - Remembered

One of the great Ska legends, Prince Buster has died at the age of 78. The Jamaica Observer reports:

Prince Buster was ailing for some time, after suffering a series of strokes.

From West Kingston, Prince Buster was a protégé of producer Clement 'Coxson' Dodd. In the late 1950s, he launched his Voice Of The People sound system and label, which released a number of his self-produced hits including Wash Wash, Blackhead Chineyman and Judge Dread.

Here's one of his best remembered tunes and one I've always liked!
