She Shake It Up Right On Time

More sad news in a year of sad news- Prince Buster, a true legend of Jamaican music from his first release in 1961, has died at the age of 78. Buster’s real name was Cecil Campbell and as Madness noted he was born on Orange Street in Kingston. He fell in with Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd’s sound system and having learned the ropes moved on to set up his own system, Voice Of The People. This song became one of those Levi’s adverts hits which shouldn’t detract from either its brilliance or the libidinous lyrics.
