MADNESS * PRINCE BUSTER * BLUE BEAT 170 * GB
The group with the highest profile to come out of the British 'Two Tone' period, the late 1970s Ska/Mod revival, called themselves Madness, after the above record by Cecil Bustamente Campbell, a.k.a. Prince Buster. Not only was the name of their band a homage to the Prince, their first record, aptly titled The Prince was also dedicated to the man. Madness, the song, was the B side of their debut single, and their second release One Step Beyond was another great Ska track from Buster.
