"The First King of Jamaican Music"

"I don't suppose Prince Buster ever made an enormous amount of money himself , but I truly believe he turned out to be among the most influential figures in late 20th century music worldwide. Myself and all the Two Tone bands owe him an enormous debt of gratitude. None of us would have had the career in music we have had if it hadn't been for Prince Buster and his fellow Jamaican musicians.
"In the words of Madness: 'Bring back the … we want the … bring back the Prince'."

In The Guardian, Jerry Dammers writes an appreciation of the King of Ska.
