The following year, Derrick Morgan released the seminal "Tougher Than Tough" single, wherein a quartet of rude boys is hauled before his unnamed judge for sentencing. Although charged with violent crimes including "gun-shooting," Morgan 's lenient magistrate lets these miscreants off. The single was a phenomenal success, so of course Prince Buster would have to respond. He did with ferocity on "Judge Dread," and in a total and absolutely unexpected turnabout, sentenced the hapless rudies appearing before him to centuries in jail.
Uproar followed, not on record but in real life, as the entire nation was caught up by the trial. Other artists now jumped on the Judge's bandwagon, and a slew of singles featuring singing magistrates and defendants followed. Eventually, Buster was ready to step back into the courtroom fray and the island avidly awaited the result of "The Barrister," a single cleverly credited to the Appeal.
The verdict actually made the Jamaican national news and no wonder, Judge Dread had jailed the appealing barrister. More outrage, more singles, and Prince Buster finally gave in and released his final word on the subject, "Judge Dread Dance The Pardon.

Renaming himself Judge Dreadhe carried on the "Big" saga into the realms of improbability that finally ended with "Big Twelve. While Judge Dread was notching up the hits, Prince Buster was already turning Los Que Vivimos Contrapunto El Camino Del Amor attention elsewhere.
Of course, rude reggae was only a fraction of what he released during the late '60s and early '70s; there was also a clutch of Beatles covers, and numerous songs dealing with other subjects entirely, and he even addressed Rastafarianism by the turn of the decade. But it was this latter area that was about to turn into a minefield. Dodd and Reid were in a similar boat, but Prince Buster was even less equipped to cope with the rise of roots than his competitors. They were merely businessmen, while Buster had converted to Islam in and thus could not credibly sing about Rastafarianism; this religious movement was at the heart and soul of roots.
But the genre didn't really seem to suit him. He continued to work with such established BB King Guess Who as Alton EllisJohn Holtthe Heptonesand Dennis Brown all of whom cut hits with himbut times were changing swiftly and Buster seemed to be unable to find a Carl Craig Moritz von Oswald ReComposed to move with them.
