Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2012 - Track Sixteen - Living Among The Dead

Here's another ska tune to quench your spooky listening thirst... this one is by Lloyd Clarke and comes from an early 60s press on a blank 7".  To be honest with you, I found an MP3 of this track about 2 years ago and immediately started searching for a copy of the vinyl, but when I saw the $700 price tag, I backed off rather quickly!  "Living Among the Dead" is a super rare and desirable record  but I think the MP3 will suit my collection just fine and besides, it will serve its purposes here in the 2012 Spooktacular.  I added some trailer audio from Dawn of the Dead and some howling zombies for background effect, I think you'll dig it!

Before it's all over I have to drop in and say as I've said years past, that your tracks are consistently the best! I listen to them all year round! The comic covers are an added touch of genius! Stay Sick!!

Total Kudos to you, John. This year's countdown is KILLING me!

Damn - last time I was in Kingston, I had a 7" of 'Living among the Dead' in my hand briefly, at Techniques in Orange St but (a) it was covered in dust and crap, and I couldn't be sure it would even play, (b) had no idea of how good the tune was, much less (c) any idea of its rarity. I'm kicking myself so hard now my toes are bloody stumps!
Great tune, truly great blog - we are wholly unworthy.
