Ska-Beat-Soul - Tribute To The Prince - 08/09/16

Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the #ska chart, 3rd in the #vinyl only chart and 5th in the #reggae chart.

This weeks show is wholly dedicated to the life & music of Mr Cecil Bustamente Campbell who we found out had passed away only a couple of hours before we were due to air.

We agreed quickly to move away from our usual format & ditch the talking in favour of playing as many of the great man's tunes as possible. Mixed emotions from the opening of 'Wash Wash', to the now haunting 'Enjoy Yourself' as we enjoyed playing every track, but they seemed to take on a different meaning ('show me that river, take me across and wash all my troubles away. Life ain't lucky oh son give me nothing to do, but roll around heaven all day...')

We still had a pile of records left to play & the 'just one more record' conversations had started with 10 minutes to go!

If you want to hear more Prince Buster - please go out & buy any of his albums, compilations, CD's - anything - just make sure you keep listening.......
