Prince Buster – Wreck A Pum Pum [1968]

Prince Buster wreck a pum pum

“Welcome To Jamaica” indeed – trapped liked a rabbit in the headlights of Buster’s ‘Pum Pum’ aiming sights; was this posed for or was it a gonzo ‘street photo’ where one of the ‘All Stars’ jumped out and snapped her?

Either way, she looks genuinely worried and the photo gives off a tangible sense of fear; don’t wreck it Buster, you may want to use it again at some point in the future.

This was first released in 1968 on FAB Records, and depending on your viewpoint it you’ll find it either a cheeky and bawdy collection of fantastic rocksteady dance tunes, or a collection of slightly misogynistic but fantastic rocksteady dance tunes.

Our opinion: A wonderful collection of 1960s slackness fun.

Prince Buster could teach the 2Live Crew a thing or two when he is in his ‘slackness’ mode, as he is here.
