PRINCE BUSTER - I Feel The Spirit
Copacetic present a reissue of Prince Buster's I Feel The Spirit, originally released in 1963. Cecil Bustamente Campbell, better known around the world as Prince Buster, was one of the most important figures in the development of ska -- and, ultimately, reggae -- music. Not just an innovator, he's also one of the more distinct and distinguished voices in the history of Jamaican popular music. I Feel The Spirit is his very first long player -- and was a hit both at home in Kingston, and in the West Indian clubs of London, where it would help to inspire the late '70s/early '80s two-tone movement. This album is one of the most important documents of early Jamaican ska, and features backing from ska luminaries as Drumbago, Lester Sterling, and Rico Rodriguez.
