Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2013 - Track Eighteen - Anti Christ

Short and sweet... Much has been said and written about Vivian "Yabby You" Jackson and his masterful productions in the early 1970s but today's spooktacular tune speaks for itself.  "Antichrist" is simply a brilliant piece of work by Mr. Jackson that works well on so many levels, whether it be lyrically, musically or rhythmically, it just sounds and feels perfect.  I have the original 7" on the Vivian Jackson label but unfortunately it has seen better days, so I borrowed this track from the 1997 Blood & Fire release Jesus Dread with all of its fidelity intact! 

"Dem say fi love, an' dem live in hate
Dem say no steal, an' dem t'ief no hell
Dem say no lust, an' dem live like a whore
Me never hear such a ting before me say:
See dem deh, dem favor sheep but dem a wolf
See dem deh, dem favor Christ but dem an antichrist"
