Reggae Covers: Buster All Stars – City Riot (Cannonball Adderley)

Posted on

This 1964 Buster All Stars cover of the 1962 original ‘The Jive Samba’ by Tampa, Florida’s Cannonball Adderley sounds like an homage by horns-mad Prince Buster to his American contemporary. The melodic identification is strong, but as ever the temptation to skank to an expert rocksteady shuffle occupies too much of my consciousness to give it much thought.
