Prince Buster, a ghetto youth from the notorious Back-a-Wall neighborhood of Kingston, is credited by many with bringing ska music to the masses -- both as an upstart sound system operator and as a producer and singer. By the mid-'60s he had already had a string of local hits, but "Ten Commandments from Woman to Man" made a particularly big splash, due in part to its unapologetically sexist stance. This album was originally released in 1967 to capitalize on that song's success. Although Prince Buster's reputation for "slackness" (sexually explicit material) was already growing, Ten Commandments has no slack material; its 31 minutes are dedicated to galloping ska rave-ups like "Girl, Answer to Your Name" and the brilliant "I Won't Let You Cry," as well as the swinging "They Got to Come" and the calypso/summer-camp classic "Wings of a Dove." "Is Life Worth Living" is slower and anticipates the rocksteady sound that was beginning to emerge in late-'60s Kingston, and which would soon slow further and thicken into reggae -- this song also serves to remind you what a great pure singer Buster was at this point in his career. And the title track still shocks somewhat in its blatant sexism, though the sly humor underlying the song is underscored by the presence of "Ten Commandments from Woman to Man," a sharp musical retort sung by a young woman identified only as Princess Buster (other answer songs were recorded independently at the time by other local artists). There are lots of fine Prince Buster compilations out there, but this classic album is as good an introduction to his art as any.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Bob Marley’s Unfinished Trilogy

It was precisely 40 years ago that Bob Marley released his final album, Uprising, the climax to his political trilogy (with Survival and Confrontation) that was left unfinished after Marley was taken by cancer in 1981. Let us look back at this Jamaican prophet’s shift towards militarism during his last three years on Earth.

In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
