“One Step Beyond” by Prince Buster

21 06 2013

For years, I have known and loved “One Step Beyond” by Madness, but it was only recently that I learned that this was a cover of a song by Prince Buster, originally recorded in 1964:

Prince Buster, born Cecil Bustamente Campbell, is from Jamaica, and had several hit songs in his native country in the 1960s. According to Wikipedia, in 2001, he was awarded the Order of Distinction by the Jamaican government for his contribution to music. He is now in his mid-seventies; I believe he is still performing.
