Crowns & Coronets '# 9 - Jamaican Princes
Last week Country Queens. This week Jamaican Princes.
First up Madness take their CCM bow with their first single from August 1979 The Prince. A tribute to Prince Buster one of whose songs gave the band their name.
Madness are followed by the man himself with a song celebrating Jamaica's independence in 1962. Taken from Jamaican Explosion a terrific Mojo compilation from September 2016.
Finally, as an added bonus, you are getting a little bit of Prince Far I.
Madness -The Prince
Prince Buster &the Blue Beats - Independence Song
