Secret Records subsidiary label, Sunspot Records, releases a well-rounded compilation comprised of early hits from Ska star Prince Buster and the various bands he featured in.

Featuring tracks from the early 1960s this period was pivotal for the legendary Blue Beat label as it began increasing its musical output to offer the rabid music fans more of the developing, new Rhythm & Blues sound that was then becoming known as Ska. One of the crucial members on this emerging scene is the now renowned Prince Buster, who featured/put together groups including Busters Group, The All-stars and The Bluebeats as well as featuring alongside other Ska pioneers such as Rico Rodriguez, Derrick Morgan and The Charmers.

In having these groups, Buster was able to provide backing for many of the rising stars on the Ska scene including the aforementioned Rico Rodriguez and Derrick Morgan as well as Basil Gabbidon and Jackie Estick. He established himself as a respected producer working on the Folkes Brothers ‘Oh Carolina’ that went on to become a hit in Jamaica and in the UK. The production on this release was particularly noted for the African-influenced Niyabinghi-style drumming and chanting that Buster incorporated into the song. 

‘The Blue Beat Explosion’ features the early, essential Prince Buster influenced tracks from some of the major names in Ska and Reggae music aimed at those interested in the beginnings of these timeless genres.

Release date: 13.05.2013 (CD)
