Freezing Up Orange Street
Take It Easy
To hear Prince Buster's crucial '60s sides is to be wowed by his sheer force of personality. Whether he's chatting a stream of worldly musings over the skanking groove of "Earthquake," or stepping into character to tackle socio-political issues on the horn-propelled "Judge Dread" and the lively "Al Capone," he comes across like a lovably eccentric uncle delivering a personal sermon. Proving that a sweet-sounding message always travels furthest, the grooves flow with a feel-good rocksteady swing.
