Weekend Calypso Treat #4 - Annie Palmer

Annie Palmer was named the White Witch Of Rose Hall due to the fact that she was purported to have practiced voodoo and tortured and killed many people including three of her husbands and a long line of male slaves who she used for sexual purposes and quickly offed when there was fear she would be discovered.

The tune you're going to hear, "Annie Palmer" was featured in last years Spooktacular but not in the same form.
Last years song was a ska version Gloucester "Danny" Hill cut in 1964 for producer Neville Foo Loy, this one is a mento version recorded years later and featured on an LP called Rose Hall Calypso from the 70s. Not technically calypso but close enough!
