EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

Fresh and cheeky

The reggae is a bit facetious but it doesn't take away from the freshness and edginess. Prince Buster shows a sense of rebellion and confidence behind his delivery. Some tracks like Take It Easy will see you humming it at odd intervals. Overall it's a great album in its entirety because of the flow between the tracks.
