Prince Buster dies, 2016 one of the worst years for musical greats to pass on.

This is one of my favorites.

RIP.

Id guess most people would only know his work via madness doing covers of his songs.

Buster, he sold the heat with a rock-steady beat

An earthquake is erupting, but not in Orange street
A ghost-dance is preparing, You got to help us with your feet
If you're not in the mood to dance, step back, grab yourself a seat
This may not be uptown Jamaica, but we promise you a treat
Buster, bowl me over with your bogus dance, shuffle me off my feet
Even if I keep on runnin', I'll never get to Orange street

So I'll say there's nothin' left to say, for the man who set the beat
So I'll leave it up to you out there, to get him back on his feet
Buster, bowl me over with your bogus dance, shuffle me off my feet
Even if I'll keep on runnin', I'll never get to Orange Street

Bring back the
Who is the
We want the

As others have said he was one of the founders of reggae. You can also include ska there.

Many a great evening I've had listening to his soothing tones.

RIP.

The great thing about Prince Buster is that he goes with more or less any kind of smoke.

That's true. He is perfect travelling music too, I find. Last Summer he played me into Krakow.
This is probably my favourite Buster tune & one of my all time favourite reggae or ska tunes.

I'm always impressed with myself when someone apparently world famous passes on and I've never heard of them.

God, what a miserable year for music!

Buster was an original reggae great before reggae even properly existed.
Yep, arguably he created what we know today as reggae.

Ahhh no. Personal favourites are Ghost Dance and Pharoah House Crash, but love many many more. A major part of the soundtrack of my young days right up to now.
Me too!

When's your 40th ;)
