You can’t beat tracking down an old seven-inch ska record in a proper record shop. Seeing those original labels like Treasure Isle, Blue Beat or Studio 1 will set your heart racing, especially if the vinyl is still in good nick.
Not convinced? Watch this superb clip of a record player dragging its needle over Prince Buster’s King, Duke, Sir and Shaking Up Orange Street. That should do the trick.
V is also for… Val Bennett: Val, who died in 1991, was a Jamaican born tenor saxophonist who played on Prince Buster’s classic Al Capone. The man was responsible for some truly boss sounds. Check out Val’s righteous horn blasting through Reggae City.
