I had a tiny spat with that doyen of the dylanoligists Michael Gray on the true class nature of the 1969 Isle of white festival here. Michael is the author of the Bob Dylan Encyclopedia, "Song and Dance Man", and "Hand me down my Travelling Shoes" as well as countless scholarly articles on Dylan. So you need to be alert to question his judgement. He contends that there were thousands of "working class" youth at the Festival. My judgement , although I wasn't there, is that hippydom and the festival by association was largely middle class.
Now this is not an issue which will trouble many people I grant you, and it maybe a question of emphasis. However to say that Prince Buster hasn't been as influential in the great tide of human culture as Jimi Hendricks, one needs a particular point of view. In our house Prince Buster and the classic "O Carolina" by The Fokes Brothers here has been the centrepoint of many more parties than Jimi's "All along the watch Tower".
