Prince Buster "On Tour"

Postby Dubac » Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:48 pm

Just spotted this LP in a store and bought it on the spot. I didn't have time to come home and consult opinions, especially as there was only one copy and the desk said they hadn't even realised they had it in stock.

Anyhow, the sound seems like authentic PB live, but what about the release itself? There's very little information on the label except the dodgy looking 'Made In The West Indies' claim.

I might as well stop there...I've just bought a bootleg, haven't I :oops:

Calm down Jah Bill. It may have been in a second-hand store, but the disc itself reeks of 2004 pressing. I'm sure it will be coming to a Car Boot Sale near you soon. :wink:

If it really is as yet unknown, here's what's on it (apart from some woman in the audience screaming over a couple of tracks):

Take It Easy
Oh Love
Seven Times To Rise
007 (Shanty Town)
Come To Jamaica

Cincinatti Kid
Move Over
Sound And Pressure
On The Beach
Al Capone

BTW, on the penultimate track, he ducks out and just sings "one more BEER" throughout, thus saving us from another interminable thread discussing what the aps/abse lyric is all about.

"My name is not Scarface!!!"

It is not a bootleg, nor is a live recording.
It has been released on several labels with different artwork, but I do beleive that the original issue was Blue Beat BBLP 808, 1968.

The same recordings without the overdubbed audience was released on the album Dance Cleopatra Dance in Holland 1972, but with slightly changed titles. Tracklisting:
Dance Cleopatra [not on On Tour]
Take It Easy
Oh Love
Times To Risc
Come To Jamaica
Cincinatti Kid
More Over
Sounds And Pressure
On The Beach
Al Capone
Waiting For My Rude Girl [not on On Tour]
