Get this one if you can. The second best Prince Buster compilation after "King of Ska". It was available very briefly in 2002, most likely withdrawn for legal reasons. The sound is pretty good (although never as good as on the original 45's) and the selection is boss. The best introduction to his music. It features two of his most iconic tracks : "Al Capone" and "One Step Beyond".

This compilation was my first introduction to the sounds of Prince Buster. I was an ardent Two Tone fan, and wanted to discover the originals. This compilation on Sequel has a great selection, but absolutely dreadful sound and mastering. When I got hold of an original Blue Beat single of "Wash Wash" many years later, it was like a revelation.

According to the labels and KKmastering matrix this is a late 70s or early 80s re-press.
