Picked this up earlier this week - very nice.

21 tracks from 1961-62, many of which I don't recall hearing before. Sound quality as you would expect is variable but certainly listenable - the last track is pretty rough though. Whist it's called 'The Ska Singles', the set is actually Shuffle, R'n'B and pre-Ska, but let's not quibble!

Amazon 10.99:

Ebay 11.99 (free postage):

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Prince-Buster-The-Ska-Singles-1961-1962-CD-Digipak-Available-NOW-/251611035110?pt=UK_CDsDVDs_CDs_CDs_GL&hash=item3a952fb5e6&clk_rvr_id=719177337568

Worth getting as it's not just the usual tracks:

1 Buster's Hop Drumbago with Busters Group
2 Buster's Idea Prince Buster & The Band Of The People
3 This Man Is Good Prince Buster & the Drumbago All Stars
4 Little Honey Buster's Group
5 Busters's Shack Buster's Group
6 Call Me Prince Buster & Carlos Malcolm
7 Rabbit's Foot Prince Buster All Stars
8 My Sound That Goes Around Prince Buster & His Torch Lighters
9 They Got To Go Prince Buster & His Torch Lighters
10 Crying Over You The Charmers with Prince Buster
11 Now You Want To Cry The Charmers with Prince Buster
12 Independence Song Prince Buster & The Bluebeats
13 Time Longer Than Rope Prince Buster & The Band Of The People
14 Fake King Prince Buster & The Band Of The People
15 Megaton Buster's Group
16 One Hand Washes The OtherPrince Buster & The Voice Of The People
17 Cowboy Comes To Town Prince Buster & The Voice Of The People
18 They Got To Come Prince Buster & The Voice Of The People
19 These Are The Times Prince Buster & The Voice Of The People
20 Please Mr.Sun Buster's Group
21 Poison on Beeston Street Buster's Group

Those eagle-eyed mathematicians amongst you may have spotted on Ebay, that "This 20 track unique compilation" has 21 tracks, two of which are "bonus tracks"!

Thanks for the tip, Andy - I was just having a trolley round Amazon anyway on the hunt for music Wink

Dang. That's one I was going to tell everyone about, before things went arse over tit, for me.... Rolling Eyes

A very tidy set, and like CC says, not the usual suspects, either.....And, I think this one is a very limited edition.....hopefully, in the vein of the Trojan box sets, that were "limited", but I've seen loads of them, over the years! Laughing
