Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2015 - Track Twenty - Public Enemy Number One

Gordon "Big Gordy" Robertson, based in Barnsley England is a top-notch selector and DJ of Jamaican music from Ska to Reggae, as well as Northern Soul and even R&B!  Gordy has an extensive knowledge of damn good music and a completely enviable record collection.  Gordy has helped out with other Spooktacular tracks in the past by providing me with an MP3 of the "Adams Family Theme" by the JJ Allstars, a tune in which I had been fruitlessly trying to locate for years but never actually had an opportunity to wrap my ears around.  When the spirit hits him he updates his DJ GreedyG's Foundation Selections Podcast - you can check it out here! Thanks Gordy!!

"Max Romeo - Public Enemy Number One. Released on "Truth" in 1971 in Jamaica. An early roots outing for Lee Scratch Perry and Max Romeo, who would work together many times over the years (resulting in tunes like the great Chase The Devil and Melt Away). Riddimwise it's a very close relation of Eric Donaldson's "Cherry Oh Baby". Max "buns fyah pon Satan" and hints towards the final battle between good and evil in the lyrics."
