Prince Buster – “Wash Wash” (1963)

One of the many excellent Prince Buster singles that Rodriguez would work on, this fun ska track prominently features Rico’s trombone. The popularity of the song at the time was timelessly captured in this live performance of the single at a Club Sombrero hosted by a young Edward Seaga.
