8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Gus the cat on 4 Nov. 2006
Format: Audio CD
In the same way that Suggs once urged everyone to get the Prince back on his feet perhaps someone should ask the great man to do something about the difficulties of getting hold of parts of PBs back catalogue. Yes this has four or five of the greatest ska anthems ever written or recorded with tunes like Time Longer than Rope, Enjoy Yourself, Wash Wash and or course Madness but even if you include the Vol II and the more recent King of Ska compilation there are many brilliant Buster ska tunes that are only available for pretty big bucks on scratchy 45s. This is great but imagine what a 30 track compilation of Buster's career from Busters Shack to the early 70s would be like.

6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mailian on 2 Dec. 2002
Format: Audio CD
This 1rst installment of Prince Buster's ska productions gives us an incomplete collection of the excellent tracks he issued under his name. His inimitable sound of handclaps and sax honks emphasizing the ska beat coupled with strong lyrics about his family (Dany, Dane and Lorraine) or his musical opponent Derrick Morgan (Black head chinaman) shines throughout this too short cd. Another highlight is Creation with its beautiful guitar intro. Worth buying because only Wash wash appears on his Fabulous Greatest Hits.

Prince Buster Fabulous Greatest Hits-Trojan Records. 3 Aug. 2015
By Johnny's Sound System - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The longest time I have been watching this Trojan records version of Prince Buster and waiting for the price to get to a good price. I am one of the lucky once to get my hands on this out of print album. It is exactly what I expected and more. From classic ska originals like "One Step Beyond" the original version that was later covered by the band Madness and started the 1980's two tone ska explosion to "Whine or Grind" a skinhead reggae rhythm that was covered by the Special Beat as "Stand Down Margaret". If you are a true lover of ska and rocksteady you must find this album. The Trojan Records version is the one to get from what I see there are other versions being sold here and the superior version is by far the Trojan version. It contains extra tracks and premium re master. ONE STEP BEYOND!
where Madness got it from 26 May 2015
By h h - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
this is where Madness got their inspiration (and most of their first records' pieces), the original ska by the truly fabulous Prince Buster, a cheeky raucous collection of 'his greatest' original hits from the '50s
