Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2013 - Track Twenty - Ghostbuster

Welcome back!  We're getting down to brass tacks here with Halloween just three days away and we're going with a little Frankie Jones to get you in the trick-or-treating mood.  Frankie's version of "Ghostbuster," much like the other similar thematic takes by Early B, Pampidoo, etc., sound so much better than Ray Parker Jr.'s atrociously annoying theme from the 1984 movie, that it's truly a shame that Ivan Reitman didn't look beyond 80s pop for inspiration.  Besides, Ray Parker Jr. famously stole the music track from Huey Lewis anyway... and as you'll soon hear, I in turn stole the best part of Ray Parker Jr.'s track for the intro to the twentieth track in the 2013 Spooktacular.

Frankie Jones' "Ghostbuster" is a super smooth George Phang production on the Rocking Time riddim and comes from Frankie's 1986 LP Old Fire Stick on the Power House label.  Venkman, Stantz and Spengler would approve!
