Yes. I remember when The Specials broke through with 'Gangsters', it was a new song to me, and many of the audience.

The local radio DJ seemed a bit baffled, saying "it is more or less a complete take-off of the old ska/blue-beat record by Prince Buster".

Which it was, and I suppose it was meant to be.

RIP Prince Buster.
