Ska icon Prince Buster changed the face of Jamaican popular music by helping give birth to the form in the late 1950's by blending Caribbean cadences with a rhythm-and-blues backbeat, its rhythmic emphasis shifted to the afterbeat rather than the fore.  National Ska: Pain in My Belly is a killer various artists compilation that Buster produced in 1964 for Blue Beat Records in Britain, its blistering contents featuring Toots and the Maytals, Eric 'Monty' Morris, and the Prince himself, as well as the pivotal musicans Don Drummond and Tommy McCook, who would shortly form the Skatalites.  Essential listening for all true ska devotees!
