Out On Blue Six : Prince Buster, RIP

So I've just learnt that we lost Prince Buster on Thursday, another sad passing to add to the list this year. He was 78 years old.

The Jamaican musician was a pioneer of ska music and a profoundly influential figure on the British music scene. Without Buster, we would have no Madness, no The Specials...unthinkable really. He was The King of Ska, the title may have been self proclaimed, but it was also very very true.

There are many great tracks to chose from, but this one seems especially apt.
