Prince Buster, "Madness"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are on Orange Street, Kingston, Jamaica in 1963 for Prince Buster's "Madness", first released on his own Prince Buster label...
"Prince Buster (Cecil Bustamente Campbell) is probably the first Jamaican recording artist I ever knew by name and the music back then was referred to as Bluebeat (after the British label it was re-issued on). He certainly was the most popular amongst the West Indians of East London when I was a little kid. Perhaps the single biggest influence on the whole Two Tone movement - giving Madness not only their name, but providing hits for them and The Specials too." - KV
